Drinks in downtown Seattle

Looking for a fun place to grab a drink with a friend after work in downtown Seattle. We both work in the financial district, but can easily hop a bus or walk a few blocks. We used to go to Sazerac and are looking to expand our horizons.

  1. Troiani on 3rd has nice happy hour specials on both apps and beverages.

    1. Depends on the kinds of drinks you want:
      Purple could be good for you

      For grabbing beers with friends I prefer Temple in Pioneer Square.

      Temple Billiards
      126 S Jackson St, Seattle, WA

      Purple Cafe & Wine Bar
      1225 4th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101

      1. Taste at SAM has a pretty good happy hour.

        1. I used to go to Sazerac all the time, until they changed chairs. now we can never get a table. I really like Vessel at 5th by the theater. It seems a little cold, but really great drinks. for a farther walk, ZigZag Cafe on the HillClimb is great.

          right near Sazerac, we go to the W sometimes. Union Square Grill has a lively bar. I don't really like Purple for cocktails. Capital Grille was a waste, happy hour wise. I have friends that go to McCormicks on Fifth and to the Brooklyn frequently.

          1. ZigZag of course, but also check out the Elysian Fields.
