Where we've featured it
Aside from the closed-until-further-notice Champagne Champagne (we miss you), The Barnacle is our favorite bar on Orcas. When the lights are low, all of the reclaimed wood and ambient rope makes it feel kind of like you’re in an old ship bobbing on open water - only you’re a little tipsy from fantastic cocktails instead of seasickness. Their drinks have a ton of variety, from smoked Manhattans to mojitos with freshly-muddled blueberries, mint, peach, and Mexican mole bitters. If you’re more comfortable outside, they have a gravel patio with extra seating. But if you don’t want to stick around at all, Barnacle also offers to-go cocktails with a meal purchase, like a charcuterie board or oysters.
