World's Best Airport Bars

by Colleen Clark

Tootsie's Orchid Lounge at BNA, Nashville, Tennessee

Leave it to Music City USA to bring tunes into the terminal. Instead of being subjected to the tortured strains of Muzak, you can sip Knob Creek bourbon while local musicians pick and grin through real-deal country and bluegrass numbers at Tootsie's. This outpost of the famous Nashville honky-tonk shares the original's garish orchid-purple exterior as well as its commitment to live music. While the Lower Broadway location has hosted everyone from Willie Nelson to Patsy Cline in its 50-year run, you probably won't be seeing any CMA award winners in Terminal C. But you never know when a future star will take the stage. There's also a small branch outside security, near Arrivals, that caters to those waiting to pick up delayed friends and family members.
