Bar Above the Phyrst Officially Named ‘Local Whiskey’

It took almost a year, but the bar located above the Phyrst officially has a name: Local Whiskey.

The moniker was kept secret since the bar opened in December 2012. When patrons asked the waitstaff what the place was called, the typical response was some variation of “Call it whatever you want to call it.” Most students have taken to “The Second” with a minority going with “The Clover.”

Although not exactly phonetically pleasing, the new name is certainly accurate. Local Whiskey boasts a selection of 200 different whiskies featuring Irish, Scotch, and bourbon — and yes, local whiskey. It’s a great option if you want to be classy for a night and escape the sweatbox and shenanigans of the Phyrst or other downtown bars.

What do you think of the new name? Will you just keep calling it The Second? Let us know in the comments.
