#2212 #S1151 - Teachers Lounge, Seattle - 7/2/2013

Update: Teacher's Lounge closed in Nov 2022

A couple who worked at the now-closed Copper Gate have carved out a small part of this 85-yo building to create a "gastro-teria" -- a craft cocktail bar in the form of a seventh grade classroom. Husband Perryn, who also recently worked at Cicchetti, creates some nice and creative cocktails, and with wife Desiree put together a nice menu from the small kitchen, complete with in-theme titles.

This is basically my neighborhood, and in addition to adding probably the second best cocktail bar after Oliver's Twist to the south, it contributes to a dandy little variety of bars on this single block, including the hipster-ish Gainsbourg, beer-ish Naked City, and epic dives the Baranof and Yen Wor.
