STL's Guide to INTA Seattle - Part 3: Bars and Hotel Lobbies 

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the first two parts of STL’s biased and incomplete mini-guide to INTA-going Seattle: Part 1 - Breakfasts and Coffees, and Part 2 - Lunches and Dinners. Here’s the final installment, Part 3 - Bars and Hotel Lobbies. As experienced INTA-goers know, finding a good spot for drinks can be a boon. Here are a few suggestions in no particular order:

  • Oliver’s Lounge (downtown) - In the Mayflower Park Hotel; won many best martini awards
  • Six Seven Lounge (waterfront) - In the Edgewater Hotel; you’ll like the mechanical trees and nature videos, about 20 feet above Puget Sound
  • Fairmont Hotel lobby (downtown) - Swanky lobby with alcove bar
  • W Hotel lobby (downtown) - Hip lobby; drinks available throughout
  • Terrace Garden and Lounge (downtown) - Hidden terrace on fifth floor of Red Lion; special on a sunny day
  • Purple Cafe and Wine Bar (downtown) - Expansive wine bar
  • Txori (Belltown) - Basque greatness in tiny digs
  • Virginia Inn (Belltown) - A favorite laid-back Northwest pub
  • Alibi Room (Pike Place Market) - Great space hidden in alley below the newspaper stand; worth the effort
  • Zig Zag Cafe (Pike Place Market) - Never visited, but there’s a lot of buzz about the drinks. An awful lot

One last tip — While you’re here, treat yourself to at least a copule of our many micro-beers, including but by no means limited to those brewed by Georgetown, ElysianPyramid, Red Hook, Hale’s, and Mac & Jack’s.

These pretzels are making me thirsty!
