On the hunt for an Aperol Spritz in Seattle?
You don’t have to jet all the way to Italy this summer to get your spritz fix. Although it takes a little digging, it is possible to find an incredible Aperol Spritz in Seattle. Luckily for you, we did all the legwork.
Now all you have to do is pick one of these 10 spots based on your priorities. Are you looking for an Aperol Spritz sans alcohol? Do you want a waterfront Aperol Spritz? The most budget-friendly spritz? Or perhaps one that comes with an incredible Italian meal?
Those are all tough questions that only you can answer. And if you can’t—well, guess you’re just going to have to try them all.
Here are the top 10 places to find an Aperol Spritz in Seattle this summer:
1. Kamp, Madison Valley
Kamp Social House in Madison Valley snags the top spot on this list for good reason: their Aperol Spritz is now just $5! This “hot girl summer” deal can be enjoyed every day for the rest of the summer, and is probably the most affordable Aperol Spritz in Seattle. Cheers to that!
2. Bar Cotto, Capitol Hill
Bar Cotto in Capitol Hill has an excellent deal for Aperol Spritz lovers. Their $60 three-course course dinner for two includes a salad, a pizza, a pasta, and your choice of a bottle of wine or two Aperol Spritzes. We think the choice is clear.
3. Willmott’s Ghost, Denny Triangle
The stunning interior isn’t the only thing we love about Willmott’s Ghost (located within the Seattle Spheres!). You can get $4 off Aperol Spritzes during their weekday happy hour from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Pair that with the $2 off antipasti, and you’ve got yourself an affordable date night.
4. Via Tribunali, Capitol Hill & Queen Anne
A classic Aperol Spritz at Via Tribunali is only $12 during their happy hour. You’ll find this deal from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays at both locations, and from 11:00 p.m. to close on Fridays and Saturdays at their Capitol Hill location as well.
5. Life On Mars, Capitol Hill
Craving an Aperol Spritz but without the alcohol? We got you. Head to Life On Mars in Capitol Hill for their Pathfinder Spritz, which is made with non-alcoholic amaro, citrus, and soda. “Think of those nice summers in Italy, but you didn’t black out after drinking all that Prosecco,” is their perfect description of this drink.
6. Spinasse, Capitol Hill
Spinasse is one of the best Italian restaurants in Seattle. The fight to get a reservation is really more about the food, but their classic Aperol Spritz is a nice cherry on top once you make it there.
7. Lupo, Fremont
Lupo in Fremont has sourdough wood-fired pizza, pasta, homemade ice cream, and Aperol Spritzes. What more could you want? That was a rhetorical question and if you try to answer it, we can’t be friends.
8. The White Swan Public House, South Lake Union
Eating oysters by the waterfront at The White Swan can only be improved with the addition of a refreshing cocktail. Their house spritz, Better Luck Amaro, has montenegro amaro, rinomato, and orange bitters, and is topped with bubbles and soda.
9. Vendemmia, Madrona
Vendemmia is a modern Italian restaurant in Madrona that is a great spot for a cozy meal, but we’d also choose their patio on a sunny day for an Aperol Spritz. Their spritz is made with Cavatelli Aperitivo, Prosecco, and Pellegrino.
10. Elliott’s Oyster House, Downtown
Elliott’s Oyster House has their own version of an Aperol Spritz dubbed the Garden Spritz. It’s made with Lacuesta Blanco Vermouth, Brucato Chaparral, basil, lemon, and sparkling wine. It’s the perfect cocktail to sip while sitting on their waterfront patio, eating oysters and admiring the view of Elliott Bay.
