Whisler’s is one of Austin’s newest cocktail spots on East Sixth Street. The staff are friendly and quick to mix, and the drinks are at the forefront of what is interesting right now in the cocktail scene.

Before former Liquid Austin writer Emma Janzen left for the blustery streets of Chicago, she highlighted 10 bars in Austin where we should be drinking right now, a piece that came out today as the cover story for Austin360. (Yes, it is behind the paywall.)

As she notes, it's impossible to give someone a recommendation for a good bar in Austin without first asking for specifications because Austin's bar scene has grown so diverse. She delivers a list that reflects that diversity, with both cocktail joints and beer bars, high-end spots and more laidback watering holes represented.

What do you think? Do you agree with these choices, or is there a place left off that you think deserves a mention?
