Knee-High Stocking Company is the least-touristy of all of the Seattle “speakeasies,” so that automatically makes it one of the best. Perfect for a birthday surprise, because it’s fun to lead the guest of honor to the random unmarked door they’ve definitely seen before and just thought lead to a gross laundromat or sad mother-in-law apartment. Make an online reservation, ring the doorbell, and some incredible cocktails and paintings of things like cherubs and madames await.
