The Swallow Bar is a sailor-themed LGBTQ bar, known for its clever innuendos and innovative cocktails. It’s been described as reminiscent of a “gay cruise ship,” and features fun events like queer latinx dance nights and karaoke. The bar made its debut in 2019, and is owned by longtime Seattle gay nightlife veteran Marcus Wilson, Barry Smith, and Thai Tran.

Pro tip: Warm up a date with laughter by ordering a cocktail like the “Salty Sea-Man,” made with tequila, pineapple, soda, a “salty rimjob,” and lime.
