Any lived-in, urban dive that pays homage to Joe Strummer, pinball and whiskey in equal measure, could be a potential classic. Delilah’s—dark, friendly and loud—is. It boasts more than 600 bourbons, ryes and Scotch whiskeys, many of them rare and top-flight, and a great jukebox packed with anthemic punk rock and swingin’ rockabilly. And though the beer list doesn’t get much glory, it’s also pretty terrific.

Bring your dog. If it’s not crowded, the pooch can run free while you sink into a frayed Naughahyde booth or play Donkey Kong.
