Men’s Journal magazine’s website has proclaimed downtown Dayton’s Century Bar one of the “10 Best Bourbon Bars in America.”
Here’s what Men’s Journal writer Michael Schaub had to say about The Century:
“A small bar with a huge bourbon list, The Century is as devoted to the whiskey as any other place in America. The knowledgeable staff can help you pick out your new favorite bourbon while you take in the stained glass and tables made from whiskey barrels. If you’re lucky, maybe they’ll be playing music from Dayton bands Guided by Voices or The Breeders.”
This isn’t the first time the bourbon bar at 10 S. Jefferson St. has gotten some national recognition. Last summer, it was named one of “America’s 60 Best Bourbon Bars” by the Bourbon Review, a quarterly publication “dedicated to the Bourbon lifestyle.” It made the same list the previous year as well.
And in October 2014, Century made a list of the 15 best bourbon bars in America assembled by travelandleisure.com.
