#961 - Dynasty Room, Seattle (I.D.) - 12/29/2009
The Dynasty Room, inside the Seven Seas restaurant, is from the Classic School. The liquor choices are limited and the decor pedestrian, but the lighting is happily low, the decorations adhere to theme, and there are few, if any, of the cheap cardboard decorations. It's not fancy, but you can still envision the rat pack rolling in for a few generous pours of scotch and soda or whiskey and Coke.
Slipshod Chinese Restaurant dive bars can be excellent fun due to the corresponding hodgepodge of human beings they bring in. But Classic Chinese restaurant dive bars provide a more serene and abiding pleasure.
