Foursquare Tips

  • The crew behind Von's has transformed the former Wolfgang Puck's/Ipanema space into a glossy bastion of booziness on Harbor Steps where, in keeping with their name, they've got over 1000 spirits.
  • Don't sit under the barrels. They drip. And they drip too slow to get buzzed of off, even if you put the glass in the right spot.
  • The Corpse Reviver No2 is the best drink I've had in Seattle. The junipered gin drinks here are beautifully memorable.
  • Bathroom code is 3456 (at least for men's room)
  • Spicy peanuts are a cheap, tasty appetizer.
  • Great selection. Make sure you have the bartender spin the big wheel during happy hour.
  • Lunch Special: 25% off for WA residents. Also, free if it doesn't show up within 15 minutes of ordering!
  • I enjoyed the simplicity of the burger, and salmon cakes were light and not greasy.
  • Reverse happy hour.
  • Great happy hour deals! Happy hour pizza is fantastic! Cool vibe. Amazing selection of spirits! Decent house white wine too!
  • The appetizers here are really good! Of note, are the wings.
  • Awesome spot if you're in Seattle. Everything is homemade, I.e. Bloody Mary mix, ground beef, hamburger buns, ice cream. With that said I highly recommend the burger and Bloody Mary!
  • The Housemade Torrid Wurst Sausage Hamburg is great! Far less intimidating than the description indicates. Tastes like a distinctly Italian sandwich. Highly recommended!
  • Just got a free drink. Name a spirit. If they don't have it. It's free!
  • The food was really good, service okay, but your girl the Skinny Bitch Martini, cool presentation and fun in a glass
  • This place is incredible. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. If you instagram a photo of the place you get a free drink from their happy hour wheel. Good deals on happy hour food too
  • French Open-- poured over cotton candy
  • Great food, great happy hour. The any time $5 martinis are surprisingly good. (the wine wasn't).
  • Great American fusion food. Bread is amazing!
  • Great classic burger. Good, reliable and sturdy bun, great toppings, good beef, bacon, cheese, sauce, seasonings. Fries $3 extra and good.
