Gamlin Whiskey House

Gamlin is unapologetically masculine with rustic decor, a hearty menu and what seems like every brown liquor under the sun. The spirits list includes selections from every major whiskey producer - all available neat - as part of a flight or in a craft cocktail. Signature drinks like the Bees Knees, a delicious blend of Knob Creek Rye and ginger ale over honey-laced ice cubes, showcase Gamlin's cocktail creativity. Ask one of the expert bartenders for a quick lesson on the nuances between Kentucky Bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, and Irish and Scotish whiskey, single-barrel bourbon, 12-year single malt Scotch, 20-year old bourbon, small-batch whiskey and rye, or just dive in solo. Whiskey may be the theme, but Gamlin does not skimp on the food. The menu is unfussy, with items like rib eye, pork steak and bourbon-brined chicken providing hearty comfort. The "Moon Dance Farm Pot Pie" is especially noteworthy, its beef-laden tomato broth made rich with tender meat, vegetables and creamy mashed potatoes. Sure, Gamlin is a little indulgent, but, after a few Manhattans, we don't really care.
