  • Pre-Mixed Cocktails
The Caribbean-themed Capitol Hill bar, which is famous for having one of the biggest selections of rum in the country, is currently closed, but you can now get their rum-forward cocktails at their sister restaurant, Agua Verde Cafe. Choose from their Daiquiri de Plata (Bacardi gold rum, passionfruit liqueur, yellow chartreuse, and lime) or Mai Tai (Rhum JM and Jamaican rum, orgeat, orange curacao, and lime) to go alongside your carne asada plate or family taco pack. They only have a limited number available each week, so order yours before they’re gone!
1112 Pike St (Capitol Hill)
Seattle, WA 98101
This Capitol Hill bar cuts across a continent, bringing sun-starved Seattleites directly to the shores of the Caribbean Sea. The bar snakes around the room like water hugging a coastline, encouraging a melting of the Seattle freeze as patrons are forced to (gasp!) look toward each other. The bold turquoise-blue seats add pops of color rarely seen in tandem with the flannel and fleece of the local uniform. But neither the bartenders nor the patrons here are beach bums: Rumba, with one of the biggest selections of rum in the country, caters to rum nerds. NAOMI TOMKY
