i love a good speakeasy, craft cocktail bar. my sister really turned me onto the speakeasy scene when she first took me to bathtub gin in nyc and i was enamored by the concept. since boston doesn’t have much of a speakeasy scene, i tend to look for these locations when i travel.
we went to @needleandthreadseattle, which is located inside of tavern law. to enter, we pick up the phone on the wall and enter through the bank vault door. it’s important to make reservations to hold with a credit card slot for one or two hour intervals because there is limited seating.
there are no drink menus, we let them know what drinks we like with a few key indicating words, and then they bring us a drink. here on the right, i asked for “not spicy, fruity, enjoys bramble, crushed ice, not too sweet.” on the left, @foodbiddies asked for “refreshing, fruity, floral, bright, different, likes mojitos.”
today’s my last day in seattle! follow along with my story to see what else i am doing and where i am going on this road trip!
