Belly up to the Bar

Get a whisky at The Whiskey, with an astounding list of bourbons, ryes and malts with and without the “e” (Scottish, Australian and Canadian use “whisky,” Irish and American spirits are “whiskey”), from Jack Daniels and Dickel to Scotland’s Great King Street and Bruichladdich Unpeated Barley whiskies. Restaurant Row. downatthewhiskey.com

Rum rules at the Caribbean-inspired Sugarcanes, with a small food menu and rum from more than 30 countries. International Drive. sugarcanesrumbar.com

Revel in an assortment of 40 premium tequilas—blanco, reposado and añejo alike—at the lobbyside 98FORTY TAPAS at Rosen Centre Hotel. International Drive. rosencentre.com


(COURTESY OF MATHERS)

Speakeasies may be the “thing” downtown, but the latest entry, Mathers, is a bit more. Gorgeous styling in the upstairs space of an 1800s building, its focus on craft gin from Hendrick’s, Death’s Door, Botanist and more is very modern. South Magnolia Avenue. mathersorlando.com
