Composing a week's worth of haikus out of brothy alphabet soup will leave anyone wanting a stiff drink. Today's Groupon puts libations and sea fare in the same place with $25 worth of food and drink at STIR Martini and Raw Bar for $10. The precise engineering of your meal will fill your gullet and further inspire your economic use of 17 poetic syllables.
Situated in downtown Bellevue in the stylish and intimate Bellevue Place Wintergard, STIR uses its proximity to the Pacific to craft a full raw menu with oysters, crustaceans, and fish. Try a well-sauced bivalve with tequila oyster shooters (presented in Sauza Silver with shallots, red bell peppers, cilantro, and lime, $4), take on tako poke (octopus with sweet onion, ogo, sesame, and spicy ponzu, $8), or belly up to sushi and sashimi, including the king crab roll ($13). For those who need the spirit of heat in their food, a savory menu of cooked goods offers the likes of beef udon (seared tenderloin with shitake mushrooms, scallion, and lemongrass, $8), vegetable tempura (with sake dipping sauce, $7), and tuna sliders (with soy-wasabi aioli, cilantro, and garlic fries, $12).
The scientifically certified STIR mixologists will complement any meal with a signature cocktail or deconstructed martini. Sip on a sparkling apple pie (Stoli Vanil vodka, chai, and sparkling cider, $8), a Bellevue blue (Belvedere vodka, Bombay Sapphire, and Blue Curacao, $12), or a stormy night (Goslings Black Seal Rum, Limoncello, and ginger ale, $9).
An evening of sophistication and carefully catered cuisine is a fitting reward for deciding to enjoy a sophisticated evening of carefully catered cuisine. Kick back in the urban lounge from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m. daily. Enjoy a late night of live music Thursday through Saturday, and see how quickly an oyster shooter shoots to the syncopation of busily tapping toes.
This Groupon is not valid toward happy hour.

- Stop singing the cubicle blues and go straight to Stir Martini + Raw Bar. Order a gin martini or a deconstructed vodka from an ice-encrusted tap and belly up to a fiber-optic-enhanced ice bar that bathes the room in red, blue, and purple light.
Scott with Seattle Food Geek attended the opening of STIR and writes:
- ...this posh bar is a welcome respite from the tourist-trap-esque restaurants that line the four-story blocks surrounding Lincoln Square, and will soon be an “it spot” for conference-goers and cocktail-savvy tech workers looking for an upscale watering hole.
