The Big Whiskey is part of the same group as Whiskey Town, The Whiskey Annex, and a bunch of other bars around the city with whiskey in their names. As you might imagine, they offer a bunch of whiskeys here, which can come in handy if your starting QB seems to forget which color jerseys to throw to, or you’re a fan of the Jets. There’s a long bar as well as a bunch of booths for big groups, and no matter where you’re sitting or standing, you’ll have a good view of the raised TVs behind the bar. The big space, which feels like a converted warehouse, also has a couple beer pong tables in the basement in case some people in your group don’t feel like sitting in the same spot for seven hours straight.
