  • Best spanish coffee in seattle made by Kim.
  • Super place!
  • Awesome bar! Great cocktails. I loved the Ryan Gosling and the Death Poem, both are rye and rum based.
  • Jason the Bartender, Katie May, steak sandwich, Burger, blackened broccoli, garlic aoili, crab cakes, fries
  • Try the Hot Charlotte. A lot.
  • Greaaaaaat drinks, seriously. Food, just okay. Shrimp cocktail is intended to be a shooter, not a dish.
  • Wonderful cocktail bar, tasty snacks, smart and friendly bartender.

  • This place is weird. Decor is interesting, service is awkward, food is terrible.
  • Great cocktails and great atmosphere.
  • Vibe is really nice here.
  • Get the hot Charlotte...end of f-*** line
  • Hand crafted cocktails and deliciously simple small plates make this place amazing!
  • Great atmosphere and drinks to match
  • Great atmosphere and great vibes
  • Good place, cool art, good steak sandwich but just a little too much onions, carne asada tacos are far from being authentic, mostly come here for the steak sandwich, cool art and cool atmosphere
  • The pulled pork and beef brisket are pretty good. Not mid-west or southern good, but pretty damn good for being in Seattle. Also, great drinks and a great atmosphere!
  • Incredible environment and beverages.
  • Best kept Seattle secret!
  • The cocktails are great; the food is not. Stick to the booze here and go somewhere else for dinner.
