Why locals love it
Undoubtedly the best bar in the city. Not a bar for an average weekend, Canon is a place to celebrate things. Amazing cocktails, tasty high-end food, and the largest whiskey selection in this hemisphere (not an exaggeration, by the way) make this place a little pricey and a little busy, but undoubtedly worth a visit.
Why you should visit it
If you want to drink something and know that what you're drinking is the best that it can be, this is the place for you. Want a delicious Bansky-themed scotch cocktail with a famous painting misted onto the top? How about a cinnamon-smoked spicy peach habanero cocktail? Or a pre-prohibition bourbon? They've definitely got it.
Go on a work night. It's a very small bar, so you're guaranteed to have a wait on Friday or Saturday.
