Are you ready to sip like a gentleman?
Radiator Whiskey is the latest in a line of Seattle bars celebrating the dark stuff, and it might just be the best.
Just opened last week by Matt's In The Market owner Dan Bugge, Radiator offers a plethora of whiskeys from all over, including a custom house blend from 2Bar Spirits.
You can get it neat (of course, like a manly man), or delve into one of several exceptional cocktails (we like the barrel-aged Manhattan).
Nothing goes better with whiskey than pig, and the menu here glories in carnivorous deliciousness. That means massive house-made porchetta, crispy beef lip terrine, and cornflake-crusted chicken livers.
As for the furniture, it takes repurposed to a whole new level, with a bartop and tables made from old high-school bleachers and recycled chairs that the crew jazzed up by soaking in tung oil and setting on fire.
What a glorious way to burn.
