Coziest Spots to Visit in Seattle

Coziest Spots to Visit in Seattle

Washington is a notoriously rainy and often cold state—so naturally, it’s also a prime destination for all things cozy. We’d argue that few things are better than curling up with a good book or cup of coffee, especially if you’re settled someplace cozy. Seattle—rather unsurprisingly—is home to a lot of these quaint and charming hidden gems that are even more alluring come winter.

Ahead, check out the coziest spots to visit in Seattle—from hole-in-the-wall bars to nostalgic book stores.

The Cozy Nut Tavern

Given this spot’s name, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it is—as the title suggests—a very cozy bar located in the Greenwood neighborhood that boasts a welcoming, woodland-themed vibe that’s ever-present on both the tavern’s merchandise and menu offerings. Stop by for a fresh cheese plate, sausage or Irish coffee—among many other popular menu items, not necessarily enjoyed together. For more information, visit

The Elliott Bay Book Company

Don’t let the multi-level build of this bookstore steer you away from stopping by. Even with its massive selection of books and full-service team, the Elliott Bay Book Company still manages to maintain an incomparable warmth and cozy essence with its wood-centric walls. For more information, visit

The Pink Door

The Pink Door—rather impressively—is equal parts a casual, cozy Italian restaurant and burlesque club that features a warm candlelit essence, views of Elliot Bay and the occasional trapeze performance. It’s really an all-in-one destination. Plus, it’s one of Seattle’s most romantic spots. For more information, visit

Gaslight Inn

You can’t beat the charm of a classic Washington residence—especially one with a well-preserved Victorian-inspired design. For those who can’t quite claim a full-time home in the Seattle area, you can enjoy the cozy essence on a temporary basis via the local bed and breakfast favorite, the Gaslight Inn. With its modern amenities and thoughtfully designed rooms, you’ll feel less like your at a casual boutique hotel and more like you’re in a Hallmark movie. For more information, visit
