As you can see, we were very excited to be named the Best Whiskey Bar and Best Overall Bar in Raleigh by Raleigh Magazine for the second year in a row! If you have not grabbed the latest issue of Raleigh Magazine or checked it out online, you are going to want to keep it handy to use as a guide to the places you need to visit around Raleigh. Here are the eloquent words they used to describe us.
Since relocating to a larger space at the bottom floor of One Glenwood, Dram & Draught’s premier whiskey collection has expanded by 30 percent. You’ll find the same black and dark brown wood details as in Dram’s previous location, as well as the same fun atmosphere and friendly bartenders, plus a new slew of sensational cocktails.”
How Did They Decide?
It’s no secret that Raleigh is full of awesome bars, so how did they decide who was the best of the best? Raleigh Magazine opened voting on its website and social media. Readers then picked their favorite bars in a range of different categories including Best Whiskey Bars, Best Wine Bars, Best Game Day Bars, Best Entertainment Bars, Best New Bars, Best Overall Bars, Best LGBTQ Bars, and more.
Winners were announced on Monday, February 3, 2020, at a party at Kings in Downtown Raleigh. We were thrilled to take home two awards for the night: Best Whiskey Bar and Best Overall Bar in Raleigh! Co-Founders Kevin Barrett and Drew Schenck were there to accept the awards. Thank you to everyone who voted for us. Check out some of the photos from the event.
