Canon is like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for anyone who cares about fancy craft cocktails. Or pretends to. Or just generally enjoys alcohol. This is the most-hyped cocktail bar in Seattle, and the good news is it lives up to it- the drinks are excellent, and it feels like you’re drinking in an extremely exclusive clubhouse. Order from the menu/mixology history book, or trust the bartender to whip something up from the wall of liquor that’s so massive it needs its own dewey decimal system. You can make an online reservation on two conditions: that you have four people or less, and that you put down a $25 deposit per person.
