The Arctic Club was a gentleman's social club for the newly minted wealthy who'd made their fortunes in the Klondike. In 1916, the members commissioned Seattle architect A. Warren Gould, to design the Beaux Arts building that would become the group's new 'clubhouse'. (Lady friends--aka, not the wives--gained access through a discreet back entrance.) Today the Arctic Club is part of HIlton Hotels, so now anyone can have a cocktail in the beautiful, old-world Polar Bar lounge. Sit back with a newspaper (non-digital, of course) and sip a Moscow Mule out of a vibe-appropriate copper mug.
