Holiday Drink Week is back, Seattle!
It’s the most festive time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than by getting a few holiday-themed drinks with friends? The Stranger and EverOut have partnered to bring the second annual Holiday Drink Week to Seattle: a week-long event during which participating Seattle bars and restaurants will be offering special holiday cocktails for only $12.
This year, Holiday Drink Week is running from Monday, December 4 through Sunday, December 10. It’s only the event’s second year and it’s already one of our favorite Seattle holiday traditions.
Read on for all the details about this year’s Holiday Drink Week!
Seattle bars and restaurants that are participating this year include Kamp Social House in Madison Valley, Ben Paris in downtown Seattle, Lush Bar in Belltown, and The Runaway in Capitol Hill. You can use Holiday Drink Week as an excuse to get out and explore Seattle, or you can stick close to your neighborhood.
Now let’s talk about the drink specials. We can’t wait to try as many of these 15 holiday-themed cocktails as possible. Your options include a s’mores-inspired whiskey and espresso drink, a gingerbread Old Fashioned finished with a handcrafted snowball and a toasted marshmallow garnish, and a hot apple cider all grown up with a splash of cinnamon whiskey. All of the special cocktails are $12 all day.
There are a few guidelines for the event as set forth by The Stranger and EverOut. The first and most important is, of course, to drink responsibly. Make sure you have a safe ride home lined up or take public transportation. Other than that, they ask that participants in Holiday Drink Week keep the holiday cheer going strong by being patient with servers and staff, tipping bartenders, and ordering food as well to show your support to these Seattle bars and restaurants.
Ready to make merry? You can see the map of participating locations as well as the full list of holiday drinks on the EverOut website.
