Seattle >Tini Bigs Lounge
Best Cocktails I've had.
My service couldn't have been more comfortable, not too intrusive, and professional.
We moved to the bar after awhile to watch the bartenders and overheard them talk about
some of the spirits they use and why. Very knowledgeable staff from what I saw.
Great selection of Martini's, very diversified to cater to various taste buds in our group.
I'll always reccommend this bar when I have guests from out of town who want something
besides a microbrew or cocktail loaded with bitters and vermouth and calling it classic.
I prefer the progressive nature in how they approach making original cocktails, seems to be
a lost art.
Don't miss the Spa-Tini. Excellent experience... Kevin (bartender) was one of the best I've ever had. Great drink menu. Make sure yoiu have Kevin make a couple of his original drinks. You won't be disappointed.
Great location for after work drinks but not worth recommending to friends. The food is okay and the mixed drinks taste watered down. The happy hour drink specials are limited. If you have a mid to large group i.e. happy hour with co-workers, the waitress insists on putting everyone's drink on one bill and leaving it up to you to split the charges and they don't tell you that they add a 20% tip to the bill. You may not notice that and give them a double tip for service that isn't outstanding. I've been there 3 times and I'm looking to go somewhere else after work because of the stagnant service.
Worst service imaginable.. The bartender was an absolute douche. He was so cocky and "too good for the customers". I even saw one bar goer leave a note on a napkin stating: "the bartender s*cks!". He made his drinks pretty well, but I can do that at home. People go to bars not only for the drinks and presentation, but for the ambiance... and Tini Bigs did not cut it. I can seriously say that I will never go there again. Waste of money, waste of time, and what an embarrassment - my relatives (visiting from Japan) were appalled. Out of all of friendly Seattle bars, I had to represent Seattle with this one. If you like having fun, stay away from Tini Bigs.
Overrated. Checked out Tini's for happy hour. Felt almost like the server diverted eye contact every time we tried to get her attention. Ordered one of the $5 happy hour martinis that tasted like orange juice. I guess you get what you pay for. Then I wised up and ordered my favorite gin martini only to have one of the most expensive and mediocre martinis I've had in a while. No thanks....
The young, hip and single gather for a '50s cocktail culture with '90s attitude..
Dim pink lights above the antique bar gently glow against the black walls, upholstered booths and varnished tables. Many variations of martinis, ranging from the elegant to the bizarre, await the see-and-be-seen crowd. Stylish drinkers love the tasty 10-ounce martinis, such as the Jasmine Tini and the Dirty Girl Scout (with hazelnut espresso vodka). For a strong boost, try the manly John Wayne Manhattan: Bulliet Frontier whiskey and Di Sorrano amaretto muddled with oranges.
Martinis, martinis, martinis.... They have a very extensive martini list and some great and original drinks that can leave you browsing through the drink menu for quite some time. It can get pretty packed and can take a while to get a drink at times. Drinks can seem a bit pricey. It's a great place to just stop in for a few cocktails, but it gets really noisy and packed at times.
Great cocktails & bar food.
So many martinis it takes 10minutes to choose!! - the bar food is great....
Great casual atmosphere too.
nice selection of unique martinis and friendly bartenders. they're signature cocktail list is very impressive and there are some good ones, although they trend a little too heavy on infused vodkas. most of their infused vodkas are too cloying and unbalanced for my tastes. my style tends toward classic cocktail places like the zig zag so take my 'cons' (in regards to their cocktails) with a grain of salt. their bartenders are as friendly as they get. on the negative side, when i've been there their bathrooms were lit with colored bulbs making me feel as if i were washing my hands in a dirty alley. and their bar food is rather pedestrian and sports-barish. overall though, for what it is, tini bigs is a great place to have a drink or two and a fine stop on a bar-hopping night.
GREAT PEOPLE!. I find that the people of a bar are what really make it great and I've found Tini Big's staff and patrons to be top notch! I took some friends from out of town to my posh watering hole and they were so impressed by the bartenders who were knowledgable of everything about this great city and the shelves of alcohol displayed in the bar. Waitresses were friendly and obviously enjoying themselves, dancing about as they amazingly balanced huge martini glasses around the packed bar. I highly recommend Tini Big's to anyone looking for a great drinks and good people!
