Venik Lounge

227 9th Ave. N.
Seattle, WA, 98109, United States
TEL: (206) 223-3734

Coffee, basil, wasabi, and cantaloupe are among the house-infused vodka flavors served at this stylish cocktail lounge, the next-door offspring of the Banya 5 spa. The lounge is small and intimate, with blue-glass pendant lights, contemporary artwork, and a custom-made mahogany bar. There, head mixologist Matt Bailey prepares chilled vodka shots, such as the garlic-and-pepper-infused “health vodka” (a Russian pre-spa tradition), as well as specialty cocktails like the Baja Session: cilantro-infused vodka, tequila, fresh lime, agave, and celery bitters, shaken with egg white and jalapeño slices. A limited food menu includes locally inspired snacks like macaroni with Beecher’s Flagship cheddar.
