When Frankie Goodman and Kaleilani Apo moved to Seattle, they knew they wanted to realize their dreams of opening a tiki lounge that welcomed people from all walks of life. Enter: Little Tin, their garden-styled speakeasy, which aims to share Hawaiian culture, food, and music with Ballard and beyond.

Frankie’s background in botany helps her dream up delicious cocktails that combine plant medicine, Hawaiian juices, and other flavorings. Little Tin’s cocktails, like the Koi Fish (London dry gin, Hawaiian lilikoi, house ginger puree, coconut cream and orange blossom water), are infused with the Little Tin Mother Tincture of lemon balm, lavender and catnip.

At the bar, choose your own adventure: nestle yourself into a cozy, plant-draped nook inside, or decompress in the backyard garden. Wherever you settle in, get ready to order something delicious, whether that’s a cocktail or a pupu (snack) plate of coconut shrimp, chicken wings, or veggie dumplings.
