The Usual



  • Best of Big D: Best Bar Worth the Drive ( 2014 )


This is Forth Worth’s spot for fancy schmancy drinks, but The Usual keeps it unpretentious and real. (A description of the pisco sour reads: “Before you ask what pisco is, I want to remind you that you do have an iPhone.”) It’s  an easy space to be in, too, modern, comfortable, and filled with blond wood. Order Brad Hensarling’s Moscow Mule. For a bourbon-heavy Prohibition-style bar, The Usual cranks out a fine version of this 1950s favorite, made with vodka, ginger beer, Angostura bitters, a bit of sugar, and fresh lime juice.
