A modern grill pub in the River Market District with all the bells and whistles — 30 flat-screen TVs, whiskey on tap, plus boneless wings, burgers, steaks, soups and salads.
Big Whiskey's Bar and Grill is right across the parking lot from the Arkansas Times, close enough we could probably throw a bottlecap from their patio and hit the window of the newsroom, so we've come to know its cool, dim confines well. It's a very grown-up place, appointed in dark wood and soft lighting — which puts it in stark contrast to some of the more meat-market joints further down President Clinton. With more than two-dozen flat screen TVs, it's an ideal spot for watching whatever game you're interested in. Or given that it's situated with windows looking out on one of the busiest corners in Little Rock, it's a great spot for great people-watching. Smoking is allowed on the patio.
