Well, here we are. Another year, another article on all the places you can drink fall things. If you're one of those people that really rags on people that love pumpkin spice lattes, this article is not for you. Or maybe it is and you can use it as fuel for your debates.

If you are someone who buys an abbundance of pumpkin things (I am guilty of this), drowns your food in maple syrup, and likes to only participate in festive things, this article is 100% for you.

I've dug through the depths of the internet to find you this year's best fall cocktails. 

A festive fall pumpkin

New York City

Double Wide - Maple Bourbon Sidecar

If you're looking for someplace quaint in the East Village, Double Wide is your bar. Known as "your favorite neighborhood bar", you can escape the busy streets to this small, cozy bar. While you're visiting this Fall, try the Maple Bourbon Sidecar. Although it's a regular on the menu, it's most fitting when the weather starts to get chilly.

Four Roses Kentucky Bourbon + Cointreau (that's a brand of triple sec for those of you wondering) + maple syrup + fresh lemon = super thankful taste buds.

Pouring Ribbons - Damien Hirst

Pouring Ribbons is a beautiful bar located on Avenue B. They pride themselves on their customer service, but you'll never leave saying the cocktails are bad. When you're looking to get into the spirit of fall, stop by Pouring Ribbons and order the Damien Hirst. 

Lot 40 Canadian Rye + Denizen 8yr Merchant's Rum + J Rieger Caffe Amaro + spiced cream = give me this now. Plus, look at this cute skeleton.

Cerise - Virgin Hotel Chicago - Devil in the Hot Seat

If you love city views, head to Cerise Rooftop in the Virgin Hotel. It's a downtown Chicago bar with a view worth paying for. It's also the location serving up the Devil in the Hot Seat. A drink that is the perfect mix of all things fall. AND it's got a name that makes you want to try something dangerous (like this drink). 

Bourbon + rasberry + maple + lemon + cinnamon + cayenne = a spooktacular Halloween festive drink. 


Washington D.C.

Bar Pilar - Jack Rose

Bar Pilar is a Washington D.C. staple. It's a great place to watch the game or grab a drink with friends. If your friends or coworkers happen to love fall as much as you do, then you definitely need to stop by and try the Jack Rose. What's more fall then apple picking, apple cider and apple flavored bourbon?

Applejack + cartron grenade + lime = bobbing for apples without saliva infested water. 


San Francisco

Lord George - Captain Crook 

The folks at Lord George "aim to treat everyone as Lords and Ladies." Who doesn't want to be treated like royalty while slurping oysters? I'd love it and I'm a vegetarian. Anyway, Lord George also has a killer cocktail menu featuring a variety of styles and tastes. If you're looking for something with those deep fall flavors, try the Captain Crook: a little mischief, a dash of cinnamon and a lot of flavor.

Cognac + aged rum + Curacao + Campari + Verjus + cinnamon + chocolate + sea salt = I'll have another.

And that concludes our Best Fall Cocktails 2017. Drink, eat some squash and check out some of our other venues!
