Local 360 is definitely a hip little joint. For starters, almost all ingredients used at Local 360 have been sourced from a 360 mile radius around Seattle, thus the name, Local 360 (duh). So Local 360 not only has fancy mixed drinks, but they are also hitting on the locavore trend as well, using mostly fresh local ingredients.
I tried the No. 9 Smash, which is vodka with ginger beer and cranberry. Think vodka cranberry, but less dive bar, and bottom shelf rubbing alcohol tasting vodka. My husband ordered the Fog Lifter which is grog, with espresso, and cloved cream. It was super yummy, and the cream settled pleasingly on my upper lip, not unlike milk or Guinness. My mom ordered the Loco Bee’s Knees which is tequila, ginger, and lavender honey. Think really classy margarita on the rocks.
We ordered the PB&J bon bons off of the small plate menu. I can’t vouch for the rest of the food at Local 360 but I can say that the PB&J bon bons were exceptionally delicious. The PB&J bon bons were three little crispy peanut butter balls filled with warm, melty, creamy, peanut butter topped with a dollop of yummy grape jelly. The bon bons came with a little glass of fresh milk to wash it all down.
I like when the drink in my hand makes me feel sophisticated, posh, and hip. And that’s exactly how I felt at Local 360. My husband says of Local 360, “I bet they have really good steak.” And that’s pretty much the highest compliment my husband dishes out.
