SUSHI SEKI 365 WEST 46TH STREET NEW YORK, NY 10036

THE WHISKEY BROOKLYN 44 BERRY STREET WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN 11249

Renowned for its omakase, Sushi Seki is so popular in New York City that it’s followed up its original restaurant on the Upper East Side with two locations in Times Square and Chelsea. And since it’s a Japanese restaurant, it only makes sense that they offer up Japanese whiskey. Boasting the largest selection of the rarest Japanese whiskies in the city, Sushi Seki knows how to service diners. NYC’s only Japaneses whiskey sommelier is on hand to guide you through some fabulous whiskies during or after your dinner. SushiSeki.com

This fun Brooklyn dive bar has approximately 50 whiskies to choose from, including a rotating whiskey of the week. It offers different whiskey flights and boasts a legit bar menu (you can never go wrong with the Bowl o’ Bacon!). It’s also a place you can spend all night, with numerous games to keep you occupied, like shuffleboard, Skee-Ball, and more. And don’t miss their brother bars, Whiskey Tavern, Whiskey Town, and The Whiskey Annex. WhiskeyBrooklyn.com

MMA Champion Conor McGregor recently launched his Irish whiskey Proper No. Twelve, which he worked on for years with master distiller David Elder. They worked tirelessly, creating almost 100 blends before finally choosing the “proper” premium blend of fine Irish grain and single malt, giving off hints of vanilla, honey, and toasted wood. Additionally, the company will donate $5 to first responder organizations and charities for every case sold—up to $1 million annually. Now you can knock one back just like McGregor.
