Polar Bar - Warm and Roomy.
The Polar Bar at Seattle's Arctic Club Hotel offers elegant cocktail service in a great big living room environment. The bar features green "Northern" lights effects which lend a lovely ambiance and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The well-upholstered seating, while comfortable, doesn't really lend itself to frisky groups -- and in fact is often rather empty -- but the grand scale of the room means it can hold a crowd. Upscale and warm, this is a great place to go with your in-laws or parent-types, or if you're looking for a quiet spot to get in out of the rain.
