2. Capitol Hill
The problem with Capitol Hill? There are too many great bars, spread over too large an area. Seriously, it should be divided into around six neighborhoods: Melrose, where The Still and Sun Liquor aren't to be missed; Summit (Single Shot and the other Sun Liquor); Olive Way, which packs Montana, Knee High Stocking Co., and more into just a few blocks; Broadway, which we've been over already, 15th Ave (Liberty!), and yes, Pike/Pine, because it's not like you can pass on Canon, one of America's best whiskey bars in America, or Tavern Law, or... you get the idea.
