Last year's winner of Best Beer Bar, the Daily Pint deserves another mention for its impressive whiskey selection. The watering hole offers more than 300 Scottish single malts (billed as “the largest and rarest selection of single malts west of the Mississippi”) and bottles from nine different countries. Curator Chris Uhde, a former plumber from Georgia, is the ultimate anti–snob. He and owner Phil McGovern pride themselves on a list that offers something for everyone, from broke newbies to big-spending connoisseurs. Notable bottles include a standout 16-year Hirsch Reserve and a 1946 Macallan that'll run you $800 for an ounce. The Daily Pint also offers a tasting club, where members can try rare bottles and learn the basics of whiskey drinking. This is the place to get your whiskey in Los Angeles. 2310 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica. (310) 450-7631, —JJ Strong
