Best Lounge

Oskar's Kitchen

If one were to guess which of the bars in Lower Queen Anne belonged to former Sonic superstar and notorious partier Shawn Kemp, the reasonable assumptions would be Peso's or Ozzie's. But it's actually Oskar's Kitchen, a charming Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and bar that Kemp named after his pet fish. Its cozy Bubble Room lounge is a pleasure to unwind in, so order a cheap (but stiff) drink and nosh on complimentary pesto pita bread. And don't be surprised if Kemp sidles up alongside you and asks how you're doing. ERIKA HOBART 621 1/2 Queen Anne Ave. N., 402-3375,
