When you walk into Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar and see customers ordering beer, you know they’re not in on the secret. Well, it shouldn’t be that much of a secret that whiskey is the alcohol to order at the H Street NE bar, despite its extensive and very good beer list. Whiskey’s whiskey pours, which range in price depending on the quality of your selection, are dangerously generous, accounting for between two and three shots in one glass. As someone who drinks whiskey like water, I often find myself nursing one glass the entire evening, whether I’m at a dance party or watching a new episode of Game of Thrones
. If you find yourself doing the same, don’t forget to bring enough cash to tip your bartender well.
