    I find them so similar you could forget which one you decided to go to. From style of food, flights and ambiance, evenfurniture! I enjoy both, but just don't find anything that stands out between them.

        At least Sip has a happy hour.

          Purple appears to have a HH at the Bellevue location but not the others - and the Bellevue one only runs til 5:30

      The advantage to Sip is an outdoor patio, but not so much in November. Also, I really like Sip's lounge seating, more so than Purple. Both are adequate to very good if you are downtown, but not worth traveling for--nothing to special. I admit to being biased to local wines, so their international flights do not seem carefully planned to me.
