Hughes Hangar

Located just a few yards from the final resting place of troubled Texas tycoon Howard Hughes, the swank and expansive Hughes Hangar would have been the ideal place for the playboy businessman to take his Hollywood conquests were he still around in the 21st century. Except that he probably wouldn't like the whole "being around humans" thing. Nonetheless, Hughes Hangar is a shining addition to the jet-set Washington Avenue, with an extensive backyard dotted with couches and canopies, plenty of mingling space, and a low-key indoor-harem feel to the hangar itself. Be sure to check out the food menu if you feel like having some of the best and richest macaroni and cheese on the avenue. By the way, that dish pairs nicely with one of the bar's signature whiskey drinks.
