    Skip the Golden Gate, delicious smells of orange, but the finish might as well be rubbing alcohol.

    Craft cocktails suffer on busy nights, but still recommended for more of a lounge style atmosphere in Belltown.

    Turns out they don't actually specialize in Rob Roys here- the Old Fashioned is the signature tipple. The name comes from "Viceroy," the former occupant. Little food, but great, great drinks.

    The decor makes a convincing argument for the 1960s bachelor pad as an alternative to the current model for modern American cocktail bars. Try the Chartreuse.

    Every other Friday and most Satrudays, Andrew Bohrer sets camp behind the bar and makes some of the best cocktails you'll ever try. His caipirinhas--made with hand-chipped ice--are the best in town!
