I've been talking about this place since it opened and still haven't stopped by yet, but now there's one more reason to get there. In addition to having great music and comedy acts nearly every night of the week; this The Triple Crown Whiskey Bar and Raccoon Motel has been rated the best whiskey bar in Iowa!

The Triple Crown opened just a year ago and already it's getting some very public attention from Thrilllist.com in it's Food and Drink section. Here's what they had to say about our Quad City gem:

"Triple Crown manages to feel like a place like your grandpa definitely would have hung out, at least for those of us with grandpas with an abiding appreciation for quality whiskeys and loud music. The interior is comfortably divey without trying too hard, and the vinyl they play when there's no live music going down feels more like a natural extension of the atmosphere than some kind of hipster showiness. You could spend a while admiring the fine bottles on display on the backlit bar here, or you could just ask for a well drink since it's $1 off and it's happy hour. It's the kind of place where u feel equally comfortable on either track, which is tough to pull off. -- ML"
