A Downtown Seattle Restaurant: Bookstore Bar & Café

If your love for high-quality dining is as strong as your appetite for well-written literature, the Bookstore Bar & Café is guaranteed to be your happy place. Against a backdrop of brick walls lined with classic tomes, you can grab a bite to eat all the way from brunch in the morning to late-night happy hour in the evening. The Bookstore uses local ingredients to their highest potential, and the bartenders serve up beautifully crafted cocktails, wines, and rare whiskeys you won’t find just anywhere. Large windows let you look out to bustling 1st Avenue while you hunker down in the ideal spot to eat, drink, read, and be merry.

What's trending? Bartender Kevin Langamack suggests the Best Cherry Coke in Town, a boozy twist on a childhood favorite. We also recommend you checkout AFAR's "How to Experience Seattle Like Rock Legend Dave Grohl" (Spoiler Alert: we're on the list).
