The Bookstore Bar’s walls are lined with, well, books, but also with Scotch-the largest collection of its kind in Seattle. Located within the Alexis Hotel, this clubby room features 70 bottles of the good stuff, ranging from McCarthy’s, an Oregon single malt, to Highland Park’s 25 Year Old. There are also rotating Scotch flights, which might include a 10 Year Old, a 15 Year Old and a 17 Year Old Bruichladdich, or Glenmorangie’s Sherrywood, Madeirawood and Portwood. This fall, the bar plans to add Scotch tastings for large groups and might offer dinners paired with it, too.
