Need bar recommendations and reviews of Canlis

We're coming into town next week and we're staying at the Grand Hyatt. We're scheduled to have dinner at Canlis (good? bad? so so?) and were looking for some fun bars in the area to check out the local scene. Granted, we'll be doing this on a Wednesday night so I know things won't be too crowded but we wanted to try some place that screams FUN & SEATTLE. Within a 10 minute cab ride of the hotel.

Can't wait to hear what you have for me!

    When you say fun bars are you looking for cocktails, beer, wine?

    For cocktails, I would check out Canlis and Rob Roy.

      I just noticed that I said Canlis for cocktails when I meant Canon. Sorry!

      Please use the search function, and you will find many threads that speak of canlis, and bars for both cocktails, and local beers.

        FUN is not what we associate with Canlis.
        By all accounts, they treat foods with elaborate care, but Canlis means "I'm rollin in dough and don't give a hoot about the 99.
        Have fun.

          Ha! Yes Canlis wasn't "fun" but it was good and on someone else's dime so we'll take it. Luckily the people of Seattle are super nice and gave some great suggestions. We had a great time
