Two years ago, the understated (and fabulous) Annapurna Cafe
added a boozier street-level counterpart to its subterranean curry den. Situated next to the Capitol Hill Light Rail Station, the dark and frill-less Yeti Bar is prime for extended happy hours. Sadly, Annapurna's full menu of Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan dishes isn't available upstairs. But a litany of drinking snacks—from crispy lamb rolls to Tibetan-style chicken dumplings—are, and saffron-infused vodka cocktails are $2 off during happy hour. If Yeti's exotic softcore soundtrack and muted Bollywood flicks have you feeling frisky, try the $5 shots of Khukri Rum—a Nepal staple. MICHAEL RIETMULDER
