    The bartender is amazing! Still the best place to drink a Mojito in Seattle. Take a look to the menu, oysters and lamb are just fantastic...

    Probably Seattle's best kept secret outside of the locals inner circle. Hidden down a flight of stairs and open late, this speakeasy like bar has an impressive whisky/bourbon/scotch list

    Cocktails here and happy hour are great.

    Come for happy hour (M-F, 5-7) for $4 off house drinks, which are delicious! For a light summery drink I recommend the "Say No More" and "Burnum Was Right". If it's nice, sit outside!

  • Kaitlin M.

    The banana butterscotch pudding dessert was fabulous

  • Troy F.

    Lovely staff, well crafted cocktails with no attitude and plenty of care on cozy confines. A true winner.

    HIDDEN GEM. So good. Staff are cocktail pharmacists that offer thoughtful consultation followed by sublime execution. Do not miss this place if serious about the cocktail craft.

  • Mike S.

    Very popular but worth the wait

    Great bar and new menu is much fresher and tasty. And trust your bartender.

    You don't have to always order off the cocktail menu. The bartenders are great at being creative.

    Excellent service -- even when it's busy. Ask for any whiskey cocktail and they will wow you. Perfect place for a drink with a date before or after a movie or performance close by.

  • Eddie M.

    Just go! Lamb and Brussels are a must combo. Octopi is so happening too

    Overall my experience was awesome and I'd definitely come back and try out their larger plates. The bartenders also are the best! They create drinks that will blow your mind.

    Really relaxed atmosphere with great service and even better drinks. My favourite drink there was an old fashion.

    The best bar in Seattle (canon is great but it's small and hard to get a table).

    Ben single-handedly converted me from beer guy to cocktails tonight...simply a magician behind the bar...I"m sure Murray was great but Ben IS great, now.

    Cocktails are tasty and normally the service is good. However there was a fly on the drink, and our server didn't seem to particularly care. Maybe check your drink before ingesting ;)

    Sit at the bar and have Erik make you his favorite drink - you'll have an unreal New Deal. Make it before 7pm and it'll only cost you $6.

    Great spot for late night chow, they serve later than most. Of course the cocktails are good too. · June 8, 2013

    The flat breads are great and so is the hummus · June 8, 2013
