Location: Just north of Seattle Center, in the ground-level retail space of a Lower Queen Anne residential building.

Decor: A stylishly mismatched collection of furniture, seemingly culled from various hotel lobbies.

Not to be confused with: Xolo, which is short for Xoloitzcuintle, aka the Mexican hairless dog.

Freakishly adorable Xolo duties of yesteryear: In ancient times, Xolos served as living medicinal heating pads, with their warm bodies draped over aching body parts.

Happy-hour drink specials: $1 off all beer (Peroni and Kronenbourg 1664 bottles, New Belgium Hoptober and Abbey drafts), $1 off all wine, $3 wells, $5 specialty cocktails (the Anthony Quinn features rum and ouzo), $4 homemade sangria. recommended
