BEST BARTENDER 

Dana Wiseman

Critics' Choice

Few bars provide such an overall satisfactory experience as the Replay. The joint is simply comfortable: The music curation is solid; the beer garden is the best in Lawrence; and, most important, the cocktails are strong and cheap. And all of that gets even better when Dana Wiseman is behind the bar. A steadfast presence on the corner of 10th Street and Mass since 1998, the white-blond Wiseman is as much a part of the institution as the pinball machines and the black-lit art, and her friendly glow warms the place. "I truly like to see people enjoy themselves," she says. And while she has seen a lot of positive changes in her 15-year stint — an overall reduction in binge-drinking and drunken driving, fewer unattended drinks — the best could be people's perceptions of Kansas after a night at the Replay. "Most people leave with a new idea of what it's really like here," she says. Wiseman is a true ambassador of Lawrence awesomeness.
