WHY HERE: Opened in 1947 as an airport-adjacent bar catering to pilots, Aero Club has served a wide variety of clientele over the years. In the ’70s, it was a cop bar; in the ’80s, it was a hangout for Greyhound bus drivers; and in 2004, current owner Bill Lutzius started turning the place into a world-class whiskey bar. WHY NOW: Some well-respected whiskey bars boast of having more than 100 bottles. Well, Aero Club has more than 800. There’s a seemingly never-ending list of spirits from all over the world, but it’s especially extensive when it comes to scotch, with single malts, blends and special editions of every possible variety.
