WHY HERE: Discover Italy in the heart of Seattle at this sunny, narrow Ballard spot from chef/restaurateur Renee Erickson. Adjacent to Erickson’s restaurant The Walrus and The Carpenter, Barnacle specializes in Italian amaro and aperitivi-style cocktails, served alongside tasty treats like hand-shaved Serrano ham, Boat Street pickles, anchovies in Calabrian chile, and marinated Castelvetrano olives.

WHY NOW: Amaro is hot hot hot right now, and this is the place to really dig in and learn with more than 20 Italian offerings alone. Having a bar dedicated to the art of pairing cocktails with cured, pickled and preserved foods is a revelation in the drinks world.
