I think this can become a great guide for both travelers and locals alike. A way to discover and rediscover or nations history. I've always said ''there's no better place to get an education than a bar'' well, this is a listing of some of the best learning institutes in America. Best of all, most are practically museums as well. The walls and the tenders tell a fascinating story. Best of all, you can virtually visit by watching the online videos that are linked via QR codes. These guys must've had a blast creating this incredible work. Cheers!'' -Sother Teague, AKA @CreativeDrunk, head bartender at Amor y Amargo in NYC's East Village
''The authors give the history, great descriptions and the most interesting nearby attractions(distractions) to visit, or not visit, after knocking back a few. With 40 famous bars to visit and each one of them unique in taste and style, everyone will find their new favorite haunt. People will enjoy reading this book because it maps out the most nostalgic classic joints still in existence in America. I too must add this to my bucket list and make the journey to find some of these fine establishments. I too will toast to the fearless defenders of these preserved historical gems!'' ---Louie Ryan, Proud proprietor of The Townhouse Saloon & Del Monte Speakeasy
As a military brat, Derek Hembree began traveling and exploring the world at a very young age. A bartender during his college years and an adventurer at heart, he's intrigued by historic bars--their stories and their contributions to the art of mixology--and is eager to share what he's discovered.
It's just okay. Most of the bars are public knowledge. I might try one or two.Published 12 months ago by kristin
