Once you're ensconced on the Eastlake Bar and Grill's deck, gazing out upon sparkly Lake Union with a happy-hour beverage at hand, you might begin to feel like fate has its mysterious ways. A grass-roofed tiki bar—outfitted with a surfboard with, weirdly, a cross painted on it—emanates Bob Marley and virulently festive drinks called Bamboozles. It resembles a Sandals resort in Mexico—one of your arms getting way more tan than the other as you anchor the bar, a breeze blowing through the dried-grass fringe overhead, a sense of helpless relaxation.
