Bars, Best Nightlife: You've got to love a place that advertises itself as, "The second best bar in Seattle." A statement like that shows confidence, and this retro-casual lounge has earned it. Vintage school-house lights hang from the stamped-tin ceiling, setting the tone. Patrons lounge in deep, tufted-leather booths or belly up to the long wooden bar. What they're after, mostly, is specialty martinis. This place was well ahead of the craft-cocktail curve, and it's known for its unique and fresh recipes. Gin or vodka marts are served in 10-once stems. Try the Feng Shui martini, or opt for the Mexi-Tini or the Flir-Tini, among a slew of others. Also available are a fine selection of single malt scotches and a menu of unique and interesting sandwiches and appetizers.
