Best Bar When You Want to Be Left Alone - 2012
Hogan's Goat Tavern
We've all had the kind of day that leaves us wanting nothing more than a quiet drink alone at some place not plagued with rowdy crew of inebriated bros, where there's no blaring TV or 20-minute wait to snag a bartender's attention. That place is Hogan's Goat Tavern, also just called "The Goat" on one of its two signs. Ever-present owner and bartender Christopher Webster will pair the right combination of drinks to ease your woes, and is adept at checking whether you need a refill through the mere raising of an eyebrow. Just don't ruin it for your brooding neighbor by striking up a conversation.
