If Unicorn on Cap Hill took a chill pill and grew up a little bit, the result would be The Velvet Elk - a two-story neighborhood spot in Mount Baker. This place is perfect for a low-key weeknight hang: there’s colorful black-lit wall art, excellent cocktails, comfortable living room furniture, and cans of Pringles and boxes of Cracker Jacks for snacking. They even have some decks of cards if you want to challenge your friends to a game of Egyptian Rat Screw while you have a couple of drinks.
