Grim's is a newer entry to Seattle's bar and club scene, offering three floors of entertainment catering to almost every taste. Downstairs, Grim's original operation is still going strong, offering handcrafted cocktails and a limited menu of contemporary gourmet bar food. The Leather Saddle stands out as one of their more interesting cocktails, rye, benedictine, dry vermouth and orange bitters creating a hybrid between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan. The decor consists of large reclaimed pieces such as long cafeteria tables sanded and varnished as well as wall paneling made from an old barn. Upstairs, the Butterfly Lounge awaits visitors seeking a more laid back experience, a wrap around plush couch dominating most of the space. Even further upstairs, The Woods provides not only a stylish (and appropriately wooden) interior, but a massive dance floor and DJs spinning everything from 80s to trance. An all-in-one destination for anybody seeking a cocktail and some company, Grim's is a must-stop destination in Capitol Hill.

Text message this Capital Hill speakeasy to get on the list, then ring the bell at the nondescript entrance (only once!) to be greeted and let in. Beside the novelty reservation system, this Prohibition-style bar offers a cool atmosphere, with the lighting dim enough for a romantic vibe, but not so dark that you can't see where you're going. Great place to bring a date or meet a group of friends. The waitstaff is dressed in Prohibition-era attire, which adds a nice wrinkle. Cocktails are stiff and reasonably priced, and happy hour offers great deals. Knee High Stocking Company also serves food; try the lamb sliders or the tater tots.
