The Helm is a tastefully themed nautical bar featuring Puget Sound-inspired small plates, many creative craft cocktails, and 8 rotational craft taps. This quaint, kitsch-free spot features items from the sea like oysters, Dungeness crab, scallops, and cured salmon, as well as some land-born specialties like creamy cauliflower soup and sweet Waldorf salad. Instead of settling for a Dark & Stormy, explore the totally unique cocktail menu and try a shaken Beneath the Olive Tree (gin, lemon, simple syrup, dry vermouth, olive oil, and egg white) or Harvest Moon (reposado tequila, lemon, apple cinnamon shrub, and Ancho Reyes), or try something stirred like the Jackalope (rye whiskey, mezcal, honey, and absinthe). Overwhelmed? The Helm also offers “spirit flights” of four different pours.
