BATHTUB GIN & CO.
Bathtub Gin & Co. is a hidden gem tucked away in an alley, and is only signified by a bold wooden door with the number 2205 next to it. While Bathtub Gin offers a menu of creative and well-crafted cocktails, the expert bartenders are more than capable of whipping up something new on the spot. If you’re a fan of gin, then this bar was made for you.
We Love Their: Dealer’s Choice, Scandinavian Sangria
Radiator Whiskey is right at home atop the Pike Place Corner Market building, directly across from the clock. Here, you’ll find one of the most extensive selections of bourbon, rye, scotch, and Irish whiskeys that we’ve found anywhere. Bitters are made in-house and there are tons of decadent meat dishes.
We Love Their: The Piledriver, The Sun Goes down, Smoked Half Pig Head
KNEE HIGH STOCKING COMPANY
Inspired by the speakeasy culture of the 20s, Knee High Stocking Company has established itself as a hidden gem to those who manage to find it. You’ll find a softly lit, intimate space that’s perfect for enjoying a cocktail or two. The mixologists behind the bar love shaking up new concoctions while you munch on top-notch small plates.
We Love Their: The Dirty Bee, The Oaxacan Shiner, BBQ Bacon Mini-Burgers, Sweet Potato Croquettes
