At International Bar, there is always one smooth, lovable guy waiting to meet you: Evan Williams, a gets-the-job-done bourbon that's part of the bar's $4 shot-and-beer deal. Regulars covet this aspect of the bar, while locals mourn for the International Bar of yore (which closed in 2002). Though it has added sinks to the bathroom since reopening, the tiny spot remains true to its dive-bar roots with a dark interior that discourages easy navigation. As if you were viewing the room through whiskey goggles, you can only see the bar, the people in your immediate vicinity, and the glowing jukebox. No matter, though: That's all you really need.
