Esquire's best bar list welcomes newcomers

Esquire magazine's 6th annual Best Bars In America list is anything but a salute to tradition. This year, it consists of bars that, for the most part, are less than two years old.

The just-released list was curated by David Wondrich, the magazine's drinks writer.

Wondrich, incidentally, has a chapter in my upcoming whiskey anthology "Barrels and Drams," to be released in September by Sterling Publishing.

The list:
  • The Thirsty Crow, Los Angeles
  • Painkiller, New York City
  • Maison Premiere, Brooklyn
  • Spirit of 77, Portland, Oregon
  • Comstock Saloon, San Francisco
  • Cure, New Orleans
  • Bar Congress, Austin, Texas
  • The Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas
  • The bar at Sra. Martinez, Miami
  • The Drawing Room, Chicago
  • The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co., Philadelphia
