2505 First Ave, 728-1337

Welcome to another world. A dark, expansive, swooping, elegant bar (in the grand Las Vegas style) where, if Seattleites had underhanded and important business to conduct, they surely would. Tinkling live piano music backed by a drum machine serves as the setting to the mysterious mix of fortysomethings kissing at the plush red bar, silver-haired ladies sipping martinis, men who look like Iranian princes, and overdressed frat boys.
