The Best Whiskey Bar in Iowa [PHOTOS]
If you're a whiskey lover, the next time you find yourself in Davenport, you need to check out Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel. They were named the BEST whiskey bar in the state of Iowa, according to the latest list from Thrillist. If you've never heard of the place, it's probably because it just opened last year!
According to the article:
"Despite only having opened in 2017, Triple Crown manages to feel like a place like your grandpa definitely would have hung out, at least for those of us with grandpas with an abiding appreciation for quality whiskeys and loud music. The interior is comfortably divey without trying too hard, and the vinyl they play when there's no live music going down feels more like a natural extension of the atmosphere than some kind of hipster showiness. You could spend a while admiring the fine bottles on display on the backlit bar here, or you could just ask for a well drink since it's $1 off and it's happy hour. It's the kind of place where you feel equally comfortable on either track, which is tough to pull off."
The bar's official website features a 360 degree virtual tour, so I can confirm that, yes, the bar is very divey, but it still looks awesome. I love the fact that they have a stage and a constant rotation of local artists.The wide selection of whiskey doesn't hurt, either. It sounds like my kind of place!
