The Blackbird

With more than 100 bottles of Scotch on offer, there’s no reason to order a mixed drink – except that the cocktails are shaken and stirred by experts, even if original head bartender Jay Jones is now lending his skills to the Canucks. Local bands play most nights of the week, daily specials are almost impossible to beat anywhere in the country – on weekdays, $8 gets you a Scotch and a half-pint – and there’s always a quiet nook to disappear into with a well- balanced Rob Roy. Bonus: You can get a straight-razor shave, drink in hand, in the adjoining full-service barbershop.
