Cocktail Bars and Lounges

Half the fun of being a "Mixology Research Engineer" is of course doing the research. Where better to research cocktails, then at a well stocked bar, with a great bartender?

On this part of my site, I will attempt to capture my thoughts and observations about many of the bars that I hang out at. Due to my geographical location, many of these bars will be in the Seattle area, but I will also attempt to provide information about some of the bars that I visit elsewhere around the globe.

UPDATE: 4/17/2020
Wow... this list is SO out of date now, that I am halfway tempted to simply turn it off. Just the thought of trying to get it to provide any sort of indication of what is going on bar-wise around the world these days gives me nightmares!
