Pink Door

If Lewis Carroll had gotten sloshed before writing Alice in Wonderland, Alice might have tumbled down the rabbit hole and landed at the Pink Door's late-night happy hour (10 p.m. to midnight Monday-Thursday) instead of that silly Mad Hatter's tea party. Festooned with flowing pink curtains and swathed in the soft light of antique chandeliers, this underground wonderland is perfect for fanciful dates and bachelorette parties. Stick to the extensive wine list ($6.50 to $9 by the glass); some of the well drinks ($4) and specialty cocktails ($7 to $9) are slightly medicinal in flavor, though at least they're high in alcohol content. Appetizers range from a roasted head of garlic ($7.05) and bruschette assortiti topped with pesto, sun-dried tomato, or tuna ($12.50) to Caesar salad ($13.95). The best option is one of the Door's many seasonal desserts ($6), which vary daily. If the weather is fair, make a dinner reservation for the outdoor terrace with a spectacular view of Elliott Bay; if not, dine indoors and enjoy nightly music—and, on Saturdays only, tap dancing. 1919 Post Alley, 206-443-3241.
