Select Local Merchants

NYP Restaurant & Bar's culinary masterminds concoct cuisine ranging from hand-tossed pizzas slathered with homemade sauce to gourmet Angus burgers grilled to customer specifications. Working in tandem with bartenders, the chefs complement each tomato-topped pie or pasta dish with craft cocktails and 20 different signature martinis such as the Tsunami––a surge of coconut rum, vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and mist. They also serve local craft beers. For some mealtime entertainment, TVs located in the bar and in the restaurant show local sports teams such as the Seahawks and Sounders.

It sounds just like a movie: a former Disney employee and a former mayor team up to run their own theater. That's exactly what Jeff Brein and Sam Granato did in 1988 with Bainbridge Cinemas, where they still spend Friday and Saturday nights tearing tickets and scooping popcorn. Besides Bainbridge Cinemas, their theater collection—Far Away Entertainment —oversees seven other local theaters, including the historic single-screen Lynwood Theatre. Opened in 1936, Bainbridge Island's first talking picture house now specializes in independent features and foreign films in which actors rearrange the English alphabet to make strange new sounds.

Over at the two-screen Admiral Theater, projectionists give newer Hollywood releases a second run, plus host screenings every year for the Seattle International Film Festival. Far Away's five remaining theaters, each with three to five screens, show digital versions of Hollywood's freshest celluloid. Lean back in the Anacortes' reclining seats, or scarf down an all-beef frank at Oak Harbor while taking in a flick or live screening of the Metropolitan Opera.

In Vanilla Room's expansive loft space, night-owls groove to electronica, top-40, and hip-hop tunes and sip premium and top-shelf libations from a full bar. Staff members greet patrons at the main doors and cater to their needs as they meander among exposed slate walls, virtual living-art tables that reflect projected images, potted ferns, and life-sized statues of Jay-Z's pet giraffe. A bartender blends cocktails, highballs, and other drinks with Bacardi rum and Bombay Sapphire gin ($5–$6 each) as well as top-shelf pours of Grey Goose and Roberto Cavalli vodkas ($7-$8 each). Live hosts conduct revelry around nightly shows, which often feature international music artists and celebrities. Guests settle cable-bill disputes via dance fights across a hardwood dance floor, and the club's high-quality sound system emits optimal acoustics amid hanging coloured lights. Move to music, lean on velour-lined walls, and compare disco-ball tattoos on leather benches.

The curving three-piece roof that shelters its entrance makes Finnegan's Pub and Grill easy to spot from afar. Through the doors, wooden banisters lead into expansive rooms filled with massive HDTVs, games, and more than 16 types of draft beer. Plates of hearty sandwiches, pizzas, and signature grass-fed and aged Angus beef steaks grace tabletops inside and, during the warmer months, outside on a large patio. Every Friday and Saturday night, DJs spin tunes and live music echoes through the halls like a drinking song stuck in a canyon; sports games and UFC matches are broadcast throughout the week. The bar shares its property with its sister establishment—Phoenix Lounge—an upscale lounge that hosts vibrant dance parties after nightfall.

A place where friends gather to share a drink and a meal, where you can just kick back and feel at home & leave your troubles behind. You might find yourself beside a warm fireplace or having a chin wag with the barkeep.Wherever you find yourself you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped off the plane in the Irish city of Dublin

In the dining room, the rhythmic pounding of a bodhrán hand drum mingles with the joyful melodies of a tin flute, flooding every inch of the space with an ebullience punctuated by onlookers’ clapping hands and tapping feet. The diners have left the feasts spread across their tables mostly untouched, their attention glued to the band in the midst of their lively song. Such moments aren't a rarity at Donegal's Irish House, but are an almost nightly occurrence at the jovial eatery that brings locals together to make new friends and share in internationally inspired meals.

Champions of fostering an atmosphere of community and friendship, the affable staff goes out of its way to make guests feel welcome, thanks to attentive service and an ever-changing calendar of events that keep inviting guests back. On select evenings, patrons can convene at Donegal's to watch a Canucks game or to see local bands. As guests chat and mingle in the dining room, the kitchen buzzes with chefs concocting Irish standards such as shepherd's pie and international cuisine that includes perogies and sausage, jambalaya, and butter chicken. Donegal's signature dish remains the whopping blarney stone burger, a 7.5-pound charbroiled Canadian beef patty that gets its eater a commemorative T-shirt and a place on the wall of fame if it's eaten within two hours with no help. Unsuccessful competitors, meanwhile, find their snapshot displayed on the wall of shame, under the most personal entry from their dream journals.
