The plain wooden door that marks the entrance this this speakeasy-style bar lies down a seedy alleyway in Belltown. Inside there are a couple of lounge areas with waitress service on the ground floor but head upstairs to the intimate bar area and ideally score yourself a seat at the end of the bar next to the shelves groaning with cocktail books. Across both floors, Bathtub Gin only has seats for around 30 people.

The cocktail list only runs to eight drinks but includes 'Dealer's Choice' - choose your base spirit and drink style and await a tasty cocktail crafted to suit your mood.

Bathtub Gin is everything you'd expect from a speakeasy - hidden location, dimly lit interior and spectacularly good cocktails.
