Found this place about three blocks from the conference hotel. A very nice selection of whiskies from various places in the world. I'm pretty spoiled in terms of good whisky wince I'm a member of the Scottish Malt Whisky Society, but this place was great....More

Wow. Used to come to this vaguely dive-bar-like place for a normally-priced beer before going over the road to the House of Blues. Has it been taken over by said over-priced concert venue? I'm here again and the price of beer suggests so: $11.37 for...More
