Whiskey, Local Bites, and More WhiskeyWe popped into the Whiskey Jar on a late Thursday evening, drawn in by the bluesy tunes pouring out the door. A brick wall lined with bottles faces the bar. Over ninety brands of whiskey spanning the sublime (Jefferson Reserve bourbon) to the ridiculous (The Original Moonshine corn liquor) are available along with any other traditional libation your heart desires. A lively crowd of twenty- to thirty-somethings boogied to the lovely gal belting out bluesy standards and originals, accompanied by an adept band with a wicked back beat. Tasty local-sourced bites like fried green tomatoes, cheesy grits, and bourbon bread pudding are available, some late night.
