Leashal I agree with @danielfarrell Christine at Zuppa is the best bartender in town!
JHodnet Best bartender Sean Telliard @Mortons RVA. He seems to know everyone and their mothers, literally their mothers too.
Cyrenitis Best drink is the mojito at Havana '59. Oh yeah. Or Legend Lager. Does that count?
Tumblette Taphouse for the best bar in Richmond! aka Commercial Tap House and Grill.
karawaane Best drink, on a hot summer night, with plenty of time to sip: a Bourbon Slush.

KristinaPerry Lucky Buddha for best hip atmosphere, deLux for best bartender (Tyler!), Havana for happy hour, Bandito's for music ('80s!)
