''Even if you don't drink, don't like bars or even antiquity, this book is great fun all by itself. It made me smile a lot.'' -Mark Medoff

''And I thought I'd been to a lot of bars! Bucket List Bars showed me just how many bars I still have to make it to looks like I'm going to have to scratch the Grand Canyon off the list and, instead, head to Denver to hit El Chapultepec, Tuscon for the Kon Tiki and the dozens of other hidden gems Dr. Clint Lanier and Derek Hembree have uncovered. This book will inspire readers to get out and see the bars that built the country (not to mention the tiki movement). Finally a guide book for people like me I'll never travel to an American city without it again.'' -Christine Sismondo Author of America Walks into a Bar: A Spirited History of Taverns and Saloons, Speakeasies and Grog Shops.

''As a lover of history and the art of drink, this book compels me to travel. A great cross-section of our countries oldest and most noteworthy watering holes. Places where the true nature of a 'bar' was born. The Public House. A place where we share news and politics, the 'town hall' as it were. This collection of bars is really a patchwork of how our country was forged. An assembly of great places that hold court with history and legend and still remain true to their ethos. A unique book that will inspire the reader to visit as many of the listed as possible as well as try and rediscover spots in their own town. Also a handy reference and historical guide for travelers to the cities mentioned. I was especially happy to read about each bars history versus the way they operate today and how steadfast most have stayed. Another great feature is the included list of 'Nearby Distractions' that offers up unique ways to enjoy the various neighborhoods that you're in.

I think this can become a great guide for both travelers and locals alike. A way to discover and rediscover or nations history. I've always said ''there's no better place to get an education than a bar'' well, this is a listing of some of the best learning institutes in America. Best of all, most are practically museums as well. The walls and the tenders tell a fascinating story. Best of all, you can virtually visit by watching the online videos that are linked via QR codes. These guys must've had a blast creating this incredible work. Cheers!'' -Sother Teague, AKA @CreativeDrunk, head bartender at Amor y Amargo in NYC's East Village

''The authors give the history, great descriptions and the most interesting nearby attractions(distractions) to visit, or not visit, after knocking back a few. With 40 famous bars to visit and each one of them unique in taste and style, everyone will find their new favorite haunt. People will enjoy reading this book because it maps out the most nostalgic classic joints still in existence in America. I too must add this to my bucket list and make the journey to find some of these fine establishments. I too will toast to the fearless defenders of these preserved historical gems!'' ---Louie Ryan, Proud proprietor of The Townhouse Saloon & Del Monte Speakeasy
