Located in what used to be a big and tall clothing store, Brass Tacks dishes out a bevy of gourmet menu items and a selection of signature handmade cocktails. There's outdoor seating and free wifi, if you're the kind of person who likes the outdoors or needs the internet wherever you go, and Brass Tacks also hosts live music performances every Friday night.
Sun Liquor's a Capitol Hill distillery & bar that also serves New American dinner and brunch dishes (options include a Tilamook cheddar "Tiki" burger with grilled pineapple and buttermilk biscuits and gravy). This spot makes top notch cocktails (duh), the likes of which include riffs on the classics like French 75's (Sun's Oslo 75 features Aquavit and sloe gin) plus original creations, all of which are picture perfect to sip in SL's plush, speakeasy style establishment.
This Seattle music club first opened its doors in 1991, and quickly established firm roots in the community. After closing in 2007, and then re-opening again in 2009, The Crocodile's just as influential in the local music scene as it once was.
Judge the bar by its nomenclature: you can literally hide out -- and of course, imbibe -- at The Hideout in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood. With an elevated cocktail culture, and elevated culture in general (it’s also an art gallery, because why not?), The Hideout encourages its patrons to drink well, by candlelight. Primarily focused on high-quality cocktails and ingredients, the salon-style bar also offers a limited menu of small snacks and chocolate confections. It’s great for early-on dates, impressing out-of-town guests, and (shamelessly) drinking alone. Just make sure you know where you’re going; it should come as no surprise that the bar's unmarked doors are easy to miss.
A swanky and Prohibition-inspired drinking lounge, Bathtub Gin & Co.'s a must-visit, that is if you can find it. Nestled into a Belltown alley way, this pint-sized cocktail haven serves creative twists on the classics, custom cocktails, and an internationally inflected selection of gin by the glass.
Dig into rustic pub fare, craft cocktails, and an "uncommon" beer selection at Smith in Seattle. This Capitol Hill area fave run by the proprietors of other Emerald City hotspots Linda's, King's Hardware, and Oddfellows Cafe, is known for their dependable menu of elevated and seasonal New American dinner and brunch selections. The warm and welcoming woodsy, lodge like interior provides the perfect setting for hearty and unique farmhouse style dishes and drinks.
This cozy and sophisticated Ballard craft cocktail bar has a comfortable, loft-y feeling upstairs area with a super-comfortable leather couch for canoodling.
