Great Happy Hour + View!.
This bar is located at the top of the Renaissance on Madison (and 6th I think?). Close walk from my office and I brought some co-workers there to enjoy the view. The happy hour prices were amazing and I brought the coupon so my crab cake sandwich was not only tasty... but free. We ordered a bunch of locally distilled gin and vodka martini's that were pretty tasty. I would highly recommend the place as an after-work spot for downtown peep's as it is a close walk and the view is perfect. The photo here doesn't do the place justice, it has high ceilings and a view of Elliott Bay, Downtown, and if you check out the pool (which is also on the 28th floor), you can see down into Georgetown. The only drawback is the cocktail price, but it's not too steep considering the view and cheap gourmet eats.
Beautiful Downtown View!.
I visited Visions on a weekday for happy hour with some coworkers. We were lucky to have clear skies with some clouds for a an amazing sunset. The happy hour prices were a steal--try the mini burgers and truffle oil fries (although played out, how can you resist the smell?)
Visions is the perfect spot for a drink after work or a worthy spot to bring out of town guests on your way to dinner downtown.
