Clever Bottle is a quiet lovely spot for a cocktail or a glass of wine and, say, a cheese plate, right in the middle of the Belltown party madness. The local liquor flight includes three local liquors and an assortment of mixing ingredients: fun.
Walk into Clever Bottle and you’ll probably feel a bit enchanted by its contrast to the outside world: With an airy design highlighted by candles, white walls, Edison lightbulbs and the occasional palm frond, the bar seems less “downtown” and more “French countryside.”
There is a small but well-planned food menu, which makes use of ingredients picked up at Pike Place Market. My favorite: the Market Tour Plate, an assortment of meats, cheeses, bread, almonds and honey.
