Why locals recommend it
Shady’s is a country-western saloon well-known for whisky, where the bartenders are relaxed but professional. The atmosphere—in a low-ceiling basement with taxidermy on the walls, candles on the tables, and peanut shells on the floor—is intoxicating. The soundtrack leans toward classic country and folk, and they often have live music on Sundays. Request the fresh-pressed apple juice and whisky, and ask for a shot out of the ‘leg’ bottle. It’s an ever-changing mystery whisky that they give out for shots if you ask. All the cocktails are fresh to order and taste a lot better for it.
Tips from locals
Low-lit, cowboy-themed hot spot with specialty whiskeys, craft ales, sarsaparilla and peanut snacks.
A taxidermy-filled den that's equally about well-made cocktails and straight spirits, bourbon particularly.
