Like a box of stained-glass self portraits or a man covered in ants, cocktails just beg to be shaken. Stir up local nightlife with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks and starters at Blush Lounge on Denny Way, between North 1st Avenue and Bay Street.
Blush Lounge, an elegant downtown hangout, serves signature cocktails and Pacific Northwest-inspired small plates to late afternoon and night owls looking to shake a tail feather on one of two dance floors or passively preen while perched on a cozy table or couch. Take in a modest plate of blackened ahi tuna ($8), or engrave your initials in a Blue Palm signature cocktail ($8). Chill, down-tempo beats saturate stylish earspaces on weekdays, and live DJs remix FDR's inaugural address all weekend long. Black granite countertops and leather chairs, illuminated by warm overhead bulbs, are complemented by modern décor well suited to relaxation, conversation, and friendly games of Operation.
Yelpers give Blush Lounge an average of 3.5 stars. Though some reviews are mixed on service, guests enjoy the food.
