Manhattan with Rye Whiskey

  • 3

Hello all-

Many bars in the metroplex seem not to be stocked with rye whiskey. How perplexing!

For those who hold the belief that a Manhattan is properly made with rye... where do you go?

Thanks!

  1. Victor Tango's and the Windmill Lounge both stock Rye and both care about the quality of their cocktails. Although VTs gets really crowded and "scene-y" on the weekends, probably better to go during the week and maybe get some food. Both can also make a sazerac. And FWIW Oasis Liquors on Spring Valley sells a variety of rye whiskies.

      +1 on VT's. Also consider The Usual in Fort Worth, they are another place that doesn't compromise cocktail quality. They focus on Prohibition-era drinks.

    2. Park on Henderson has Rye and is also cocktail conscious.
