Erie's Only Whiskey Bar // Bourbon Barrel

Bourbon is an All-American drink, made in America by Americans from American grain. In fact, Bourbon is so damn American that, in 1964, Congress itself recognized it as “a distinctive product of the U.S.A.”

Just as American whiskey was born in Western Pennsylvania, so was the Bourbon Barrel. Western Pennsylvania was the epicenter of American Whiskey production. We hope to see the Bourbon Barrel become the epicenter of American Whiskey consumption in Erie, PA.

Founded in 2015, Bourbon Barrel is a locally owned and operated whiskey bar located in the heart of downtown Erie, PA; we are committed to being a positive part of Erie's downtown nightlife. With over four miles of trim and handcrafted woodwork in this eleven thousand square foot venue, we provide a lavish atmosphere for you to enjoy. Take a seat at our 40ft bar or sip specialty cocktails in our VIP section.

Our crew thrives on the All-American dream. It is our pleasure to bring you a high-quality experience, as we believe you deserve the enjoyment of finer things that help make life a little sweeter.

Experience Whiskey Like Never Before.

We are on a mission to serve America's best spirits - which is why we have hand-selected over 100 of them for your tasting enjoyment. We offer what we believe is the widest selection of bourbon in the Erie area, with knowledge about every bottle on our shelf. If you are a first-time whiskey drinker or a bourbon aficionado, you are sure to find something you will enjoy on our shelves.

We're Not Just Whiskey!

Although whiskey is a large part of what we are about, we recognize that it is not for everyone. Almost 300 spirits to choose from, our bar features a wide selection of specialty drinks and classic cocktails. Our talented bartenders shake and stir classic and contemporary cocktails.
