It could take you hours to decide which wine bar is the best. Feeling overwhelmed? MostBest knows the Top 3.
With more than just wine, these Seattle spots go above and beyond your average sipping experience.
Wine lovers will rejoice at the mere sight of Bottlehouse’s extensive collection. The staff is comprised of self-proclaimed “curators of wine” and run the bar much like an art gallery. Shelves upon shelves of wine line the walls and sit next to rustic displays. When the weather’s nice, the back patio often hosts live music where you can enjoy your wine and small plate snacks, too. Do a tasting while you’re here—there are also microbrews and hard ciders!
