2016 Best Bar, Martha's Vineyard


Martha’s Vineyard is known for many things, from crispy fried clams to breathtaking beaches. But top-notch craft-cocktail bars wasn’t one of them—that is, until 20byNine came along. You can’t go wrong with a Manhattan, which comes close to the classic drink’s platonic ideal. After just one, you might be bold enough to cozy up to your bartender and ask for that day’s “smash,” a rotating off-menu creation.
