Bathtub Gin, in the basement of the Humphrey Apartments in Belltown, is a miniature speakeasy-style bar that doesn't try too hard and works like a charm. The entrance is in the alley. Go early and park at the six-seat bar for a while to make new friends, drink great cocktails, and enjoy the hell out of yourself.
