1. The Nest @ Thompson Seattle
Dark, winter nights pair well with dazzling city views and the backdrop of Elliott Bay. Warm up at the Thompson’s rooftop lounge under a cloud of sparkling lights with a cocktail in hand. (Indoor seating is available, as well.) The Pea Diddy, named after the hip hop icon, is a lovely sipper of pea flower infused vodka, passionfruit syrup, lemon, and tiki bitters. The food menu, consisting of small bites, revolves around seasonal and regional produce. Think Dungeness crab sliders and red beet hummus with za’atar.
