"Jay Kuehner is the most creative bartender in Seattle, taking your palate to weird but wonderful places. This smoky cocktail pairs mescal with Basque cider, olive oil, muddled apple and ginger, finished with lime zest and sea salt. It’s a vegetal drink, layered with earthy and floral notes. It has an oily texture you would find in a cask-strength whiskey."

Our beautiful bar and lounge floats above 11th and Pike, with an expansive west-facing sun deck, cozy and elegant conversational nooks, a substantial library and exceptional cocktails crafted by Jay Kuehner - one of the most celebrated bartenders around. The drink menu features craft cocktails with a focus on Vermouth, Sherry, Apertifs, and small batch distillates that Jay has discovered on his international travels.

Our baby white grand piano is often in good use, and our fireplace keeps things snug during the dark days of winter. A perfect location for a night of conversation, or to bring a group of friends. We offer little plates of delightful farm sourced food including a daily tartine, kurt wood farm cheese, kale salad, charcuterie and other bites. 

Please email to reserve for parties of 12 or more. Parties of 20 or more will require a bar minimum charge of $650.
