This Pike Place Market cubbyhole has a patio that rivals the popularity of its renowned bar. On Fridays, don’t even think about getting a seat outside unless you arrive as the front door is being unlocked. When the sun shines, everyone wants to be here: not only loyal customers, but also tourists who eye the bar from the waterfront-adjacent Hillclimb. The otherwise invisible hideaway becomes a beacon of sweet patio sipping when customers overtake the 35 or so seats. Summer cocktails are on the lighter side; think fewer Manhattans and more gin gimlets. Frosty pints of Maritime Pacific are also available, as are a small but decent selection of wines by the glass and an impressive champagne roster. Krug is always in season.
