The Lookout is a casual neighborhood bar with a tree-lined back patio that feels like a garden oasis with trees and greenery creating a low-key experience that would almost make you forget you were in the city -- if it weren't for that killer view. They offer a great selection of rotating beers, classic pub fare, and creative cocktails.
The Lookout is more of a hilltop than a rooftop, but its views, food, and general ambiance make up for its technical lack of a roof. With the Space Needle off to the left and the rest of Seattle sprawling out to its right, your drink (perhaps the Queen Bitch, the Hot Marie, or the Sazerac) will taste that much better. Plus, during happy hour, a well drink will only set you back five bucks.
