If you see a bar with a fluorescent neon martini sign with cheesy font that looks like it was pulled from Microsoft Word’s clipart library, you’d probably laugh, take a photo to show your friends later, and go home. However, walking past Suite 410 with its ridiculous sign would be a huge mistake - because you’d be missing out on one of the greatest cocktail bars in the city. This place feels like a secret you want in on - inside, it’s dark with candles on every table and feels more like a big-city bar than one in Seattle. The drinks here are always stellar, whether you order a citrusy drink made with genever (a spirit that’s kind of like gin but tastes more malty, almost like Whiskey) or a daiquiri with Plantation Pineapple rum. The bartenders go above and beyond to talk up interesting liquors, give you a taste, and even use it to make something off-menu for you.
