Saint, Seattle, Washington

1416 E. Olive Way
Seattle , Washington
Tel: 206 323 9922's insider take:

The Tiffany-blue-and-white facade of this cozy tequila bar brings a little bit of colonial Mexico to Capitol Hill. Don't expect sombreros or Day of the Dead skulls—the Saint forgoes all kitsch for class: clean, Scandinavian lines; a beautiful candlelit bar; framed black-and-white photos of matadors; and more than 80 top-quality tequilas from slammers to sippers (and even a few pricey reservas). Moneyed denizens of Capitol Hill are happy to drop $14 on delicious tequila-based cocktails like the angelflower (Patron Silver, mint, cucumber, and blue agave syrup, topped with an edible flower), though if you're looking for something more auténtico you'll find it in the small menu of traditional favorites like puerco pibil and posole—accompanied by a drink mixed into a Jarritos soda bottle.

Open Mondays through Fridays 5 pm to 2 am, Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 2:30 pm and 5 pm to 2 am.
