Not just any bar will get you the most delicious cocktail. It takes a special atmosphere, talented bartender, and specialty liquors to mix up the best of the best. Connecticut is home to a variety of bars that will give you different experiences but all provide great taste. Try one or all of these bars and don’t be afraid to stray from your comfort zone.
Connecticut has several bartending schools to turn beginners into experts, teaching the tricks of the trade and showing students what really goes on behind the bar.
