Why It's Hot: This feel-good space in Pioneer Square brings together vintage brick walls and wood floors with innovative cocktails and envelope-pushing cuisine.
Must-Drink: The aquavit-driven Svenskarna is fittingly refreshing for warm weather with its blast of cucumber and citrus. But The Lazuli, the bar's Northwest tribute to the margarita, is the can't-miss drink. It brings on the blueberries with blanco tequila and a bit of eucalyptus syrup.
Insider Tip: Chef Eli Dahlin's menu is a moving target. Fried chicken and bread pudding showed up last week. But you can always count on the adorable and totally delicious duck hot dog. Happy hour is between 4 and 6:30 PM, weekdays.
