If you tell someone you’re going to The Mountaineering Club without any context, they’ll think you have a mysterious outdoorsy side, and might ask you to borrow a camping stove in the near future. Joke’s on them, you’re really just into drinking good cocktails. The Mountaineering Club is a rooftop bar on top of the Graduate Hotel in the University District. The space is designed as if Smokey The Bear himself picked up a West Elm catalogue and opened a bar that happens to have very good views of the eastside of the city. The camping theme extends into the drinks - our favorites are the Banana Pancakes and the Orange Snack. If you must eat here, get the bacon sandwich and skip the $18 hot dog. Believe it or not, there’s a way better $18 hot dog in this town.
