This snug bespoke whiskey bar and bitters emporium makes up for its cozy quarters with an astounding collection of wine and spirits (peep the 94-page menu!). If that weren't reason enough to check out this Capitol Hill spot, Canon Whiskey holds the title for having the largest selection of American whiskey in the world... score!
It has all the liquors and all the awards, and after a long closure followed by a few months of takeout only, this world-famous decade-old cocktail bar reopened in August. That means you can again order their version of the soyer au Champagne from 1896—but updated with Cap'n Crunch ice cream—as well as their own modern creations, like Snow White's bong, which comes in an apple-like glass with apple brandy and caramel smoke.
canon, a self-described “whiskey and bitters emporium,” is best known for its curious, fancy, and often-complicated mixed drinks (consider the Anning Martini, for example, which arrives smoking with liquid nitrogen). Luckily the food is just as delightful: pork belly buns, a Wagyu NY strip, wilted kale panzanella, and lots of fresh oysters round out a menu that never disappoints.
