Get your drink on at one of the best – They can make anything here, and it will be amazing!
Top shelf mixologists and liquor in a stylish and comfortable room. Share your preferences with the barkeep and wait to be delighted!
To get you in the mood, try on a Trixie's Slipper: bourbon, grapefruit, creme de mure, honey, and cava. It's served in a champagne flute and people love it! Guys and gals both!
A cocktail oasis in the heart of Belltown. No matter what you're in the mood for they can make it happen.
Best Old Fashion I've ever had! – This place is the room that every man wishes he had in his house. the staff was great, and the drinks where better. cant wait to go again.
Sexy Little Cocktail Spot – Rob Roy is one of the best spots in Seattle for a great cocktail. No overtly sweet appletinis here (thank god!). The mood is smoldering and sexy with black leather seating and interesting decor. I honestly can't tell that big of a difference from Viceroy to Rob Roy except now the drinks are better. Great after dinner spot for amazing drinks!
Why change something that works? – I've been going to Rob Roy (Viceroy) from time to time for the last couple of years. I don't mind change, as long as its for the better.
I asked them why they changed the name and the decor. The reason: because they wanted to be a more upscale place. What was wrong with the not-so-upscale?
Not quite sure how going for Van Gogh (old painting) to psychedelic helps that much. They also moved from being a relaxed, fun, lets hang out kind of place to a more serious, lets get in and get out kind of place.
I still think it's one of the better places in Belltown, I just find it unfortunate the vibe changed for the worse.
Viceroy, New and Improved??? – I've been a Viceroy regular for almost 2 years now and until recently enjoyed almost everything about this bar....Sleek, swanky decor, awesome friendly staff, unique drink menu...Lately, I'm not so sure. First the decor took a turn for the worst - Not sure what's up with all the tacky psychadellic artwork, but it really is hideous...then some of the best bar/waitstaff in town disappeared. Sadly, between the changes in ambience and recent employee turn-over, Viceroy just isn't the same place it used to be. I think time to find a new happy hour hangout : (
Was Great, now I'm not so sure. – I've been a semi-regular to this bar since they opened almost 5 years ago. I even reserved the place 2 years ago for my 30th B-day party and it was awesome! The staff is great, The drinks are great, and a atmosphere USED to be great.
Now I'm not sure if I can bring dates or even friends here anymore. Why the remodel??? What's up with the sh!tty 80's black light hippy art? I loved the whole sleek dark James Bond style. Now it's just some stoner's cheap poster collection. I'll miss you viceroy.
We need to talk – Viceroy, I like you a lot and I know a bit of change from time to time keeps things fresh...but, how do I say this...your new artwork hates eyes, *my* eyes at least. You do not have gallery white walls, Viceroy, nor to you have primary colored lucite chairs or chandeliers made of paperclips or chenille covered beanbags, so why the Op Art? Viceroy, you are this chess den in the country house of that creepy Franco-Russian playwright type of sultry...Just be yourself; everyone wants to get with you.
Also, when you wear your tables all high on one side like that and couches all low on the other, it makes you look a little lopsided. It had to be said.
The Viceroy...Where Everybody Knows Your Name – Remember the show Cheers? The bar where everybody knew your name? Viceroy appears to be the Seattle incarnation...A fun, friendly bar that appears to draw lots of regulars. Sitting at the bar and sipping a drink while waiting for a friend to join me, I was impressed by how many times the staff actually greeted customers by name. I can see why people would keep coming back...the service is friendly, seating is comfortable, and the drinks are tasty. Try their cucumber cocktail...refreshing. Viceroy has the right idea...
Sexiest Bartender Ever! – Amy German is without a doubt the sexiest bartender alive today.
She looks great, is utterly charming, serves the punters promptly with a smile and just oozes sexiness.
I'm from London and met Amy a mere twice in The West End, Roatan, Honduras, in '99. So what do I know?
Well, I know for one thing that I'd not hesitate to visit this here bar for a dose of possibly the coolest vibration around were I ever in Seattle. Yet if Amy wasn't there, I'd be gutted.
You, my friend, should check it out.
All the best Amy,
why bother writing a review when 20 are already written? – let me start by saying i'm one of the few who don't like linda's other bars. "lindas" on capitol hill and "king's hardware" are too easily a place for children to join forces in the army of drunken weekend displays of intentional retardation of the social skills.
how then, did she come up with such a refined atmosphere with elegant furnishings and an exceptional selection of fine beverages, find a couple of really great bartenders, and put it all together in a great location?
who knows... but i adore this bar. go there for happy hour, have a few then find something to eat at any of the great restaurants within sight of the viceroy's front door. then go back to the viceroy and enjoy the week night scene, if you get too drunk, or find a one-night-stand buddy, ask your bartender how to get to the ace hotel.
