If HGTV designed a tiki bar very meticulously down to every last bright blue backsplash tile, it would look like Navy Strength. This place is perfect for casual drinks and light snacking (on potato chips with caramelized onion dip or duck sliders) before some Belltown bar-hopping, and even better for a post-dinner cocktail and dessert (get the root beer-glazed donut holes) when you’re coming from their sister restaurant No Anchor around the corner. The verbiage on the drink menu has the swagger of a comedy screenplay, and there are tons of options - from fruity tiki drinks and fancy cocktails to large-format stuff for sharing and a few so booze-heavy there’s a limit of two per person. The prices here are steep, so read the menu carefully and talk it out with the bartender to commit to a drink you’ll like, or you might end up spending $18 on something you don’t actually want.
