This is the best place in town if you want to have a glass or two with nice people or alone. Especially if you like whiskey. They gave a great choice. Also other drinks.

I visited this bar just after it opened and for the whisky lover it is completely mind blowing. Little did I know that Kaunas (or indeed the whole of Lithuania for that matter) had such a huge interest in whisky. Bar W1640 is clearly run by folks who know their stuff and have a huge passion for the subject. The whisky list rivals most Scottish whisky bars, particularly when it comes to unusual, hard to find bottlings alongside Japanese whisky. It has a cosy, unpretentious feel, lacking the all-too-often 'knowing' atmosphere whisky bars are prone to. Put it this way, if you enter as an uneducated-but-curious novice, you'll leave full of enthusiasm, armed to the teeth with facts and a belly full of excellent, reasonably priced drams. A must see, if you're heading to Kaunas.

Kaunas could be proud of this place. So good selection of whisky from around the world. They even have plenty of hard to find Scotish whisky and nice collection of Japanease ones.
We loved smoked whisky cured snacks and salads. Bartenders are very nice too. You can even get free dram of whisky :)

Went to Whisky Bar recently with my parents on a visit to see my fiancee's family in Kaunas. This is beltin' little bar and wish there was one in London. It's set in a cosy, 17th century brick arched basement. Well lit with candles and spotlights. Mostly locals which is always a good sign - very friendly bunch - one group of lads invited us over to have a dram from a bottle they were sharing on the table. Barman spoke good English. The whisky menu is massive and there's dozens of single malts - sorted out into different regions. There's also Japanese, Irish, Welsh, Canadian, American etc so plenty to keep us busy! It's also great value compared to UK prices - so we could go on a bit of a tasting session. Only thing is. Mind your head. The ceiling is very low in some parts and I cracked my head a couple of times on the way to the bathroom.
