Executive Chef, Hector Laguna’s menu represents the botany of the Pacific Northwest region, where locally sourced ingredients are coupled with contemporary techniques. The Botanist bar program features a list of sophisticated yet whimsical cocktails, with a select number of chemist-like designs under the direction of creative beverage director, Grant Sceney. Since opening, the Botanist bar has received notable accolades including Top 10 Best New Bars, ‘Bols Around the World’ World’s Best Bar Team, Americas (Tales of the Cocktail), and named one of the best new bars in the world by the 2018 Condé Nast Traveller Hot List.

With an innovative cocktail bar and lab shaking up chemist-like libations, a lounge pouring the world’s finest, a lush garden, and an exclusive terroir-driven wine program which supports small-batch sustainable and bio-dynamic farming practices; the experience reflects a new Pacific Northwest—one that has always been there, it was just waiting to be discovered.
