    Bathroom is too cool! Talented and talkative bartenders in a relaxed atmosphere, loved it!

    Front of house is unhelpful and their seating/standing policy is absurd. If there is an unreserved seat at the bar it should be open to anyone, even if there are two of you.

    Service is perfection. Drinks are well crafted and the ambiance is soothing. Thank you for the wonderful night.

    At 8pm on a Thursday: "It's a 15 minute wait for standing room so you can go stand outside and wait."

    Amazing selection of alcohol, ask to see the full list!

    One of the two best Seattle bars. Crowded. Get there mid week to get proper service and a calm, relaxed atmosphere.

    Ricardo Hernandez · August 9, 2015
  • Fernando T.

    easily the best old fashioned that have ever drank

    Fernando Takai · July 30, 2015

    The whiskey selection is insane.

    Adam Schuit · July 12, 2015
  • Malcolm L.

    Try the marrow, and ask for "The Luge" after to pour down the bones!

    Malcolm Lalkaka · July 10, 2015
  • Scott H.

    Come here and ask for Chris then get the Shrouded Roulette which is an off the cuff recipe based on your base alcohol. Whiskey is mine and every drink was an amazing adventure!

    Scott Houghton · June 26, 2015

    Pork buns were a surprisingly good amount of food. Delicious cocktails too. 🍸

    Daniel Tewfik · June 6, 2015

    Great atmosphere! Fabulous drinks! Love the tin ceiling and light fixture.

    Sandy Obuck · May 31, 2015
  • Amy R.

    There is a lot of presentation to the drinks here, which makes it extra fun

    Amy Robertson · May 30, 2015
  • Toby L.

    You've got to check this place out - half the experience is just watching them make the craziest drinks you can imagine

    Toby Lorenc · May 11, 2015

    My friend was visiting in town and according to my research this was ranked top 6 cocktail bar in the world. The wait was around 1 hr on a sat night, the drinks are pretty strong but not top 6 quality

    Vodka cranberry

    Karen Saville · March 27, 2015
  • Le J.

    The most creative cocktails menu I've even seen.

    Le Jordan · March 27, 2015
  • Haley B.

    Get the truffle manhattan, parsnip soup, arugula salad & nut mix.

    Haley B · February 8, 2015
  • Derrick D.

    Campfire cocktail is a sight to be seen. If you're not prepared to pay $12+ for cocktail, don't go.

    Derrick Deese · February 8, 2015
  • Rahul D.

    Ask for the scotch list and be prepared to stare at it for a long time.

    Rahul Dhar · February 1, 2015
  • andrew c.

    Largest whiskey selection I've ever seen. Tell the bartender what you like and have them choose for you.

    andrew chapello · January 9, 2015
  • Jon J.

    Whiskey drinks of course

    Jon Jacobson · January 9, 2015
  • Genki U.

    Better when it's not slammed, a great place to drop by early and often. But... That said, just go when you can!

    Genki U. · December 30, 2014
  • Michael E.

    Come early, you have to wait inline...

    Michael E · December 28, 2014
  • Jamie Y.

    Do not come here with a group. Perfect for 2.

    Jamie Y · December 24, 2014
  • Arthur P.

    The hot cider is bomb!

    Arthur Pang · December 17, 2014
  • Windermere Seattle

    Don't let the 45 minute wait scare you, this bar is definitely top 3 in Seattle and is well worth it.

    Windermere Seattle · December 15, 2014
  • Derrick D.

    Cocktails Are fantastic. Try the swagger. They also have an $1100 cocktail for those feeling themselves that night (but not likely in the morning)

    Derrick Deese · December 11, 2014

    Campfire in Georgia x infinity!!

    hugo liu · November 20, 2014
  • Kristine G.

    So far we've had the Pork Belly Sliders, the Flank Steak Succotash, and the Chicken Pesto. The bartenders are fun and make you feel safe to play "roulette" (a fun cocktail option!). Pork loin d'best!

    Kristine Gelsano · November 19, 2014
  • Tyler S.

    Have no reservations with respect to reservations. The presentation of the drinks alone is worth the visit.

    Tyler Szabo · November 4, 2014
  • Loren J.

    Best cocktails in Seattle. Order an aged cocktail for a truly unique taste.

    Loren Judah · October 7, 2014
  • Drew O.

    Ahhh! Best Manhattan in town

    Drew Oliveira · September 26, 2014
  • Valor P.

    Wow. That's what I call a selection!

    Valor Poland · September 25, 2014
  • Matt B.

    Awesome drinks...get there early as there will probably be a line, but totally worth the wait.

    Matt Barber · September 21, 2014
  • Yosef S.

    Check out their aged tonics

    Yosef Silver · August 8, 2014
  • CB D.

    Amaro selection, cocktails, staff

    Latin Trifecta. Give it a try!

    Allecia Vermillion calls this the “brown liquor juggernaut of Seattle cocktail bars” with a massive (in the thousands) whiskey collection and back-to-back James Beard noms for outstanding bar program. Read more

    Canon makes a good old fashioned

    Old Fashioned · May 17, 2014
  • Serious Eats

    We particularly love the carbonated Last Word cocktail, but it's nearly impossible to go wrong at Canon.

    Truffle Old Fashion - best drink in Seattle

    Chris Volckmann · March 2, 2014
  • Pacific Republic

    With the largest selection of American whiskey in the world and a 94-page menu (including nine pages worth of rare whiskies), Canon should be on every boozehound's bucket list.

    Pacific Republic · February 23, 2014
  • Andie S.

    The bathroom, though. Seriously.
