After being shuttered for nearly two years, one of Seattle's most legendary cocktail bars is back on the scene. You'll find some of Seattle's most expert mixologists at Vessel, where the artisanal drinks are stellar and the atmosphere of these sleek new digs is always buzzing. Accents of leather, steel and red resin lend a masculine vibe to the space, and the custom bar, made from a 24-foot slab of madrona wood, gives bartenders plenty of room to showcase their talent. Even the ice is custom made—out of view, alas—with a giant tray and a chainsaw. Vessel also serves a full lunch and dinner menu.
