WHY HERE: Bright, festive and fun are the words that best describe this Latin American joint in Pioneer Square. Like walking into an Instagram-friendly cooking show kitchen in Costa Rica, it’s a great place to down tequila, mezcal and pisco. Cocktails are straightforward and delicious, especially paired with smoked squash quesadillas or Peruvian chicken.
WHY NOW: Owner Matt Dillon proved his chops with his other spots, Bar Ferdinand and Sitka & Spruce, and Copal ties in nicely. Go for the fiesta, stay for the food, then order another round of fizzy Palomas or a boozy slushie.
