    LIBATIONS FOR LOCALS: MAY 2015

    This is not your father’s scotch. Owners Ivan Burgess and David Brown have done the dirty work by vetting almost each of the 70 scotches on offer, demanding an even share of smoke, peat and sweetness throughout all of their blends. Don’t worry if you’re not a whisky lover. This local’s favorite bar also serves up lighter concoctions, like Disco Lemonade (a sake, vodka and lemon mix) to enjoy on the lush patio. Patrons at The Rusty Nail also find the location, tucked away in the Warehouse District, a pleasant and welcoming retreat. 1100 Constance St., (504) 525-5515, therustynail.biz – See more

We love everybody at The Nail and offer something for everyone.
