Tucked away on Capitol Hill, Liberty remains an industry favorite since opening in 2006 (and they haven’t closed a single day since they opened their doors). Equal parts coffee bar, cocktail bar and sushi bar (yes, sushi), their spirits list runs deep with special attention to scotch and Japanese whiskey. Owner Andrew Friedman, President and VP Emeritus of the Washington State Bartender’s Guild, spearheads the continuing education of Seattle bartenders and cocktail geeks by hosting master classes from visiting distillers and spirits world VIPs.
