Century Bar named one of the nation's best bourbon bars

Joe Head and the rest of the boys and girls at Century Bar: A Bourbon House have another feather for their boozy caps.

Men's Journal magazine has named the bar at 10 S. Jefferson St. in downtown among the "10 Best Bourbon Bars in America" in an "Expert Advice" piece by Michael Schaub.

Here is what Schaub says about the bar affectionately known as The C-bar: "A small bar with a huge bourbon list, The Century is as devoted to the whiskey as any other place in America. The knowledgeable staff can help you pick out your new favorite bourbon while you take in the stained glass and tables made from whiskey barrels. If you're lucky, maybe they'll be playing music from Dayton bands Guided by Voices or The Breeders."

This isn't of course the first time Century Bar has been in the spotlight. (Hence the "another feather in cap" comment.)

The bar was named one of “America’s 60 Best Bourbon Bars” by the Bourbon Review, a quarterly publication “dedicated to the Bourbon lifestyle.”
