  Best Whiskey Bar

  Tom's Town Distilling Co.

   With its 1920s Gatsby-like vibe and enormous walnut bar, hardwood floors and original tin ceiling, Tom’s Town Distilling Co. is downright sexy. Its enticing atmosphere with a view of its distillery just makes you want to have a deep discussion or flirty chat while sipping a variety of whiskey cocktails. Kansas City’s notoriously corrupt political boss Tom Pendergast, for whom the bar is named, undoubtedly would be proud of the joint, and so are we. 1701 Main St., Kansas City, Mo., (816) 541-2400,
