WHISKEY BEAR - Lexington, KY

Voted as one of America’s Best Bourbon Bars 20192020, 2021 and 2022 by The Bourbon Review in partnership with Buffalo Trace, Whiskey Bear is a full-service Whiskey Bar and Bottle Shop. Originally located in The Summit at Fritz Farm, Whiskey Bear moved to the Beaumont neighborhood in South Lexington in 2022. As part of this relocation and expansion, Florence and Daniel Marlowe, the owners and operators, also introduced a fast-casual and family-friendly Neo-Neapolitan style pizzeria, named Addie’s Stone-Fired Pizza, as a sister concept to Whiskey Bear. Whiskey Bear features an extensive selection of bourbon, celebrating Kentucky’s heritage, as well as other whiskeys from around the world. All our cocktails are crafted with fresh ingredients. We celebrate our American roots by showcasing classic cocktails that highlight the foundation of our trade. We express our creativity through our list of signature and seasonal cocktails. The heart of our business is our people. It is their hard work, passion, and dedication to their craft that allow us to stand out. We welcome you as family and look forward to serving you soon.
