Every year, for the print edition, Esquire magazine rounds up a few of its favorite bars in the country. How do they define what makes a bar great?
"If it's a dive, it's Christ-this-place-is-a-dive dive. If it's an Irish pub, it's not an "Irish" pub. If it's a cocktail lounge, it's got some Tanqueray Ten and a bottle of good rye somewhere."
Nice. Of course, the actual magazine's short list leans heavily towards the northeast. But online, there's an interactive map and a full list of Esquire's top picks for the whole country, as well as a feature where users rate the bar from one to 100. Guess what -- our very own Churchill's not only made the staff picks cut, but it's also ranked number two in user ratings, with an average 78 out of 100.
