Zig Zag

WHY HERE: Opened in 1999 and tucked away off a stairwell beneath Pike Place Market (look for the large sign declaring “Cocktails”), this is where beloved barkeep Murray Stenson, credited for inspiring hundreds of bartenders since the early days of the cocktail renaissance, hung his hat for many years.

WHY NOW: Stenson has since moved on, but Zig Zag is a cozy, welcoming darkened space for savoring classic cocktails, including the Last Word, which Stenson helped revive and popularize. Pair with Mediterranean-influenced small bites.
