Swanky little hotel bar/restaurant. Large lobby area to hang out. We left the day of a Seahawk game and they were all set up with games, etc. Very fun. We had cocktails and the Korean brussell sprouts at the bar before walking to a concert....More

The food here for Happy Hour is good, and discounted well. Drinks are good, and the design around the bar at least is cool.

W hotel is a high-end hotel from SPG hotel chain already. W hotel in Seattle is the only category 5 hotel based on SPG rating so you can definitely expect high quality time there! Not so crowded at night either, luxury vibe.
