Fu Kun Wu
Located upstairs from Ballard’s Thaiku, Fu Kun Wu is both secretive and sensual. Originally a Chinese apothecary upstairs with an opium den below, Fu Kun Wu's bar employs expert mixologists who create strong herb-infused cocktails such as the oolong tea martini and yohimbe mojito. Take a long look at museum-like space with wood carvings, Buddha statues and jars filled with mysterious bones. The value-conscious arrive during happy hour from 5-7 p.m. for half-priced food from Thaiku and drinks, while music lovers come for the live jazz on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
If you order a cocktail with African yohimbe bark, don't be surprised by the warning list of side effects (stimulating aphrodisiac and mild hallucinogen, among others) and the limit of one yohimbe-based drink per evening.
