Reviews for Essex

In an America with 73,608 pages of tax code and confusing dress code names like "Reef Casual," sometimes you just want to throw in the towel and get a little tipsy. Molly Wizenberg and Brandon Petit's new cocktail bar in Ballard is the perfect place to do it. The drinks here, unlike tax codes, are refreshingly simple. Options like the Queen Mary, an upgraded Bloody Mary adjusted to suit the after sundown crowd, consists of largely house-made ingredients. This from-scratch ethos can be observed in nearly everything coming from behind the bar and out of the kitchen at Essex. The growing crowds, flowing in from neighboring sister restaurant, Delancey are a testament to how the extra effort is paying off.

Great spot for cocktails & small plates. A big fan of the radiccho if it's on the menu. Not a cocktail drinker? Check out the ginger beer and housemade elderflower soda.


The fact that Brandon & Molly from the beloved Delancy next door are behind this clever craft bar make it a winner. House made infusions & yummy food with a classy yet unpretentious feel, this place is a Ballard gem you'll want to visit often!


Perfect if you are waiting for a table at Delancey next door or if you just want a good cocktail. Don't miss trying one of their on tap libations, delicious!
