1. The Cobra Lounge 1122 Madison, Seattle, WA 98104 (Capitol Hill)

Opened by high-school buddies w/ their own radio show/ a penchant for sticking it to the man, the CL's a streeted up take on classic Mid-East smokeries modeled on the crew's first location in Bellingham, which was also Washington's first legal smoke spot -- something they slipped through loopholes in WA's anti-smoking ban by selling tobacco/memberships in a smoke-free tiny shop around the corner where all the workers are technically employed, placing them squarely at substitute teacher status.
