The Bookstore Bar at The Alexis Hotel: A Seattle Icon

The Bookstore Bar & Café is a Seattle must. On First Avenue at the Alexis Hotel, this café and bar is a local hotspot and Seattle institution. Grab a drink. Eat a meal. Read a book.

The Bookstore Bar & Café is famous for its vast whiskey library and flavorful food pairings. But its iconic Seattle status goes even deeper. Delicious, Northwest-inspired American cuisine is on the menu, and an extensive selection of wines by the glass, towering floor-to-ceiling windows that let you watch the world go by and seasonal sidewalk seating for beautiful downtown Seattle days make us a neighborhood favorite.


Yup, The Bookstore Bar & Café really is a bookstore, too. The selection is as fun, eclectic and classy as our clientele. All books: $5. Looking: Free.
