    Oliver’s Twist is the work of the folks behind the bar of the same name in Phinney Ridge. This popular Magnolia gastropub is a great addition to the area, it has a warm friendly feel, the amiable bartenders serving cool cocktails amid quirky surroundings.

    Oliver’s Twist is the work of the folks behind the bar of the same name in Phinney Ridge. This popular Magnolia gastropub is a great addition to the area, it has a warm friendly feel, the amiable bartenders serving cool cocktails amid quirky surroundings. The interior is a collision of vintage bits and pieces. There are black leather banquettes and paper lampshades, a wall full of local art. Their cocktails are well-made and creative and include a peppery Manhattan and their contemporary spin on Seattle favorite, the Old Pal, here made with rye, Campari, sweet vermouth, absinthe and Peychaud’s bitters. A good stiff satisfying drink. The food menu is full of creative small plates including their already famous garlic-truffled popcorn, kale with garlic and chilli, blue cheese and bacon stuffed dates, duck-fat fingerling potatoes and a divine grilled-cheese sandwich served with an inventive tomato cappuccino. We’re intrigued by the idea of the grilled chocolate they offer for dessert.
