Happy Hour at Oliver's Lounge

A May The Peach Be With You and a Mataxa Sidecar Cocktail from Oliver's Lounge. 

My husband and I recently visited Oliver's Lounge for drinks. This downtown bar is located in the Mayflower Park Hotel by Westlake Center. They are celebrating 43 years of being in business. Although the hotel has been open since 1927.The lounge and hotel felt classy, upscale, and a little Old World to me. Oliver's Lounge was also Washington's first daylight bar. The floor to ceiling windows look out onto 4th Ave and the bar offers a quiet respite from downtown. 

If you visit during Happy Hour they have complimentary appetizers. When we visited they had mini beef tacos with bright red shells. They were pretty tasty and hit the spot. They also give you complimentary roasted peanuts to snack on. For our cocktails, I chose a Peach Be With You and he had a Sidecar. My drink had Gin, Peche de Vigne, mint leaves, a squeeze of lime, and a bit of bubbly. It was the perfect summer beverage and tasted fruity, with just the right amount of mint and lime. His drink was a Metaxa Sidecar with Metaxa Brandy, Cointreau, and fresh lemon juice. This drink was created in 1922 at the Ritz Hotel in Paris.  We'd walked by this bar for years and were always curious. I'm so glad we finally stopped in and experienced this classic lounge in Seattle. 

Oliver's Lounge is located in downtown Seattle on the corner of 4th Ave. and Olive Way.
