    Canon opened nearly a year ago, and it remains one of the hottest cocktail bars in town, thanks to its ambition.

    The place is dripping with antiquated, old-world charm. You need to try the pork belly sliders, tip your bartender, and thank me later. And use their bathroom :)

    Ask for the unicorn helmet if it's your birthday. Be persistent. They might not give it to you the first time, but will give in eventually.

    Apparently the servers don't like to split checks here. If you're in a group mention it at the beginning of service to avoid classic Seattle passive aggressive behavior from your server later on.
