What You'll Get
Drinking a well-made cocktail is like falling in love: it leaves you with a warm feeling inside, a smiley outside, and the ability to speak high-school level French. Embrace your inner urge for amore with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $35 worth of drinks and appetizers, as well as 20% off a copy of Tini Bigs Big Martinis, at Tini Bigs Lounge.
Open every day for nearly 15 years, Tini Bigs lounge is a thrumming dynamo of nightlife, serving a panoply of amply portioned classic gin martinis and barrel-aged cocktails, as well as a range of inventive eats. Nosh on a plate of hand-cut fries cooked twice and tossed in parmesan cheese ($7) between sips of signature cocktails such as the apricot sidecar ($9), a concoction of brandy, apricot liqueur, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup ringed by lightly salted henchmen. The elegance of the Smokey Bigs—Finlandia vodka ripened with a splash of 16-year Lagavulin scotch and flavored with capers ($9)—complements the robust Bigs cheeseburger ($12), upgraded from the classic American staple with Beecher's Flagship cheddar, tomato jam, and a diamond-encrusted bun.
Rich, filigreed wood columns frame the meticulous labor of the lounge's libation specialists, and the bar's mirror reflects, like a happy bald person, a pleasant, warmly lit scene. Groupon customers also get 20% off the Tini Bigs Big Martinis book, a collection of the lounge's top 50 martini recipes accompanied by lush photos.
- Tini Bigs' cool, dark, and shadowy space conjures up a vintage ’40s feel, the perfect aura for sipping a unique and classy martini, the obvious drink of choice here (although wine, brandy, bourbon, and rum cocktails are also on the menu). – Seattle Weekly
- On the border between Lower Queen Anne and Belltown, this bar led the revival of the martini as the cocktail of choice in Seattle. – Frommer's
