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!
good ambiance, good service, weak drinks – i know we'd been drinking all night, but usually you can taste the liquor in your drink....
this place never lets me down as far as the crowd goes...good people, i love just sitting on the couches inside.
Great Sunday Lounge Spot – I've been going to the Viceroy on Sunday nights the past few weeks and I'm loving it. Unlike Fridays and Saturdays, Sundays have the relaxed lounge feel the Viceroy is so great at. The DJ is amazing--I love the blend of classic funk and soul and modern rap. James (the bartender) definitely knows how to pour. I highly recommend it for your weekend windown.
Pros and Con – So many things about this place are so right....warm, intimate ambience, attentive service, tasty cocktails.... the Viceroy would be the perfect spot to gather for an evening of drinks and good conversation...unfortunately the LOUD music makes this more than a little difficult. My friends and I stopped by on a Wednesday night. The DJ was playing fun music but it was so loud that we were forced to yell to maintain conversation. The Viceroy has a great lounge-like ambience, but the blaring music seems a contradiction to the whole "lounge" concept....
Typical Seattle Nightspot – Okay, Viceroy has decent drinks, the atmosphere is cozy and inviting, but I have to say it's a typical Seattle nightspot. My wife and I went here after Sushi as Shiro's for a drink on a Friday night and Viceroy was filled to capacity with seriously ugly people. And by ugly, I mean women that might have been attractive but were wearing flannel, big loose jeans, stocking caps, etc. etc. Seattle is the only city in the U.S. where women think dressing up to go out for cocktails is a cotton hoodie and Converse All-Stars. Ugh. See and be seen? Only if you want to see skids and lumberjacks.
Check it out! – A little loud, but otherwise a great time. I heard good things about this spot and checked it out for the first time last Saturday with some friends. Great drinks, cool furniture, and our waitress was awesome. Just an all around good vibe.
Great scene – I loved this place. It was really romantic with comfy leather benches to cuddle on, dim lighting, and funky decor. Our waitress was really fun and dedicated to making our experience pleasant. The only problem was they didn't have the liquor for the first couple of drinks I ordered, so no fun drinks : ( however the drink i did end up ordering was amazing. I loved the cute little cups of goldfish set out on the tables.
swanky place---lots of girls – i like this place for the crowd that it attracts and also for the strong drinks. it is centrally located, though parking can be spotty.
Love Love Love this place!!! – My co-workers and I have become Friday evening happy hour regulars and love this spot! Although the vibe changes markedly after 10pm when a DJ usually begins spinning for the night, happy hour here is perfect for winding down and taking the edge off. Comfy couches, coffee tables....it's like sitting in someone's chicly decorated living room. The service is warm, fun, and friendly. We adore our usual cocktail server and have always had pleasant service when seated at the bar. Great vibe, great staff, great drinks......can't think of a better spot for happy hour cocktails.
Best Nightlife in Belltown – A girlfriend introduced me to the Viceroy the other night, and I am a new believer that good nightlife still exists in Belltown!! Unlike the cheesed out bar scene that seems so present down on First ave., Viceroy is a nice getaway. The lounge is comfortable and open, encouraging social activity with a young attractive crowd and good music to boot. Our bartender James was charming and friendly, making us feel right at home. I'll definitely be back next week with a few more of my girls to share this little jem in the heart of Seattle... I only hope we can grab a couch!
Blind Date – I'm not one for getting fixed up, but I decided to take a chance. I was nervous and didn't want to go somewhere too big and overwhelming, or a place too small and romantic (just in case he was a snore!) One of his co-workers recommended the Viceroy. When I walked in through the large Bank looking door, I was already impressed by the warm cozy atmosphere. There was a DJ setting up for a night they have there. My date was waiting for me at the bar with a Martini. I'm not much of a drinker so I was a little nervous about ordering. The Bartender was very helpful and suggested The Bergdorf. It was a refreshing, not too sweet, Vodka Martini. The place eventually filled with a young hip crowd. The music was fun and lively. I really liked my date and the spot! I was pleasantly suprised.
