With so many new places popping up and plenty of old-school restaurants serving noteworthy experiences, Bulleit Bourbon believes it’s time to get back out there and support the local bars in the Seattle area. After all, these bars aren’t just a place to grab a drink. They’re part of what makes Seattle special. Keep them pouring by ordering a whiskey cocktail or two — the first round’s on Bulleit.

Bulleit Bourbon believes the best way to help our local bar communities is to get back to the bar. To make that happen, they’ve established a $250,000 fund that will reimburse your first drink back through their digital rebate program. You can submit your receipt at LocalBarSundays.com.*

1. Art Marble 21

731 Westlake Ave N
Seattle, WA 98109
(206) 223-0300
Visit Website

Art Marble 21 occupies an attention-grabbing piece of history from 1921, a rarity amid the mostly new growth of South Lake Union; the classic brick facade draws the eye and massive windows overlook the hypnotic seaplanes of the lake. It’s also filled with entertainment — sports play from dozens of TVs, and there’s a bocce court and arcade machines in the massive game room. Tuck into house-smoked, wild-caught salmon dip or a buttermilk-brined fried chicken sandwich and warm up with a Toddy 21, featuring Bulleit Bourbon, honey, orange peel, ginger, lemon, and a cinnamon stick. Or try a Spiced and Fashioned, which tweaks the Old Fashioned formula with Bulleit Rye Whiskey, spiced simple syrup, and orange bitters.

Bulleit Bourbon shines in JaK’s Old Fashioned and pairs perfectly with hits like Dungeness crab cakes, jumbo prawns, beef tartare. Of course, the star of the show is the extensive list of aged steaks and chops, from New York strip and cold-smoked ribeye to specials like prime rib on Mondays, all begging to complement your glass of whiskey neat.

Keep things light and fresh with local oysters, Manila clams, and spicy mussels, and a Bulleit Bourbon on the rocks, or lean into a darker day with a Grey Sky cocktail (Bulleit Bourbon, Earl Grey tea simple syrup, muddled blackberries) and a lamb burger with feta, harissa and tzatziki on a brioche bun.
