Hemingway may have had Sloppy Joe's in Key West and La Bodeguita del Medio and La Floridita in Havana, but I've got him beat because I've got the Zig Zag Café when I'm in Seattle.

This is the bar I've always been looking for.  An old school vibe, comfortable, dimly lit, yet classy at the same time.

I loved this place so much that I went every night I could, six nights in a row.  Erik and Ben are not just amazing "mixologists", but the best of old school bartenders.  I can't explain it, but think about every fantasy you had about going to a bar and meeting the best bartender ever, and you'd know how I feel.  Sort of felt like I went through some alternate universe where the cocktail culture of the roaring 20's never ended.  Kind of like a cocktail version of Steampunk, if that makes any sense to you.
