Shady Lady and Pour House named among country's 55 best bourbon bars


Congratulations to the Shady Lady Saloon and Pour House, two midtown watering holes now ranked among the country's finest places to sip whiskey. The Bourbon Review, a leading publication dedicated to American whiskey, name checked Shady Lady and Pour House in its list of "America's 55 Best Bourbon Bars." The list ranked these Sacramento bars along such stalwarts as Rickhouse in San Francisco and New York City's Death + Company.

"We are honored to be recognized alongside some of the best bars in the country," said Jason Boggs, co-owner of Shady Lady. "It says as much about our city as it does about the Shady Lady."

As for the methods of compiling the list, the editors of The Bourbon Review said the following:

"The criteria for the list was simple. The bar needed to showcase Bourbon in a very proud manner, by educating their patrons about Bourbon and either providing them with a superior selection or a combination of a great selection along with having a reputation for showcasing Bourbon in their cocktails."
