Seattle’s elegant new Palladian Hotel, in the heart of Belltown, has a similarly elegant bar in Pennyroyal, an old world-style spot focused on aged spirits and house-made ingredients like liquor infusions, vermouth, grenadine, tonic, and bitters. Inspired by old-world European style bars, Pennyroyal defines itself as a ‘social salon.’ The menu includes a rotating punch and drinks come served in handsome, heavy vintage glassware. Drinks are creative and contemporary and include things like the Dream Unicorn, a blend of Espolón Reposado tequila, fresh pineapple, ginger, lemon and bitter lemon soda with a floating raspberry sitting on flaming a lemon half. (Which is awesome, we have a real soft spot for flaming drinks). Bar snacks includes pickled mussels brined with seasonal chilies and other tasty things.
