Celebrated Seattle Chef Renee Erickson recently opened a nautical-themed bar in the Amazon Spheres. Christened the Deep Dive, the bar’s décor is inspired equally by classic speakeasys and Seattle’s maritime culture. With an interior darker than her other projects, the bar is lit primarily through spot lights showing off collected curiosities—statutes, carved flowers, and a crown made of matches. Navy velvet seating, dark wood, and low golden lighting give the impression of being deep underwater, exploring a cave or shipwreck. A hefty cocktail menu is available, from classics to originals by Jermaine Whitehead. Try the Made in the Shade: a mix of raspberry shrub, bitters, citrus, and gin. The bar is run by a renowned chef, so expect the bar eats to be well above average. Erickson offers a twist on the Seattle

Dog; hers involves a grassfed beef frank topped with jalapeno, red onion, whipped cream cheese, and a line of pink salmon caviar. Cured salmon, caviar toast, and crab tartine are also on the menu. Several non-alcoholic drink options made from alcoholfree Seedlip 94 are available for the designated driver. The entrance to Deep Dive can be found on the Amazon Spheres at Lenora Street. The bar sits 30, and due to its location and novelty, it can still be hard to get seats. But if you find yourself in the area with some time to kill, check out one of Seattle’s most beautiful new nautical bars in a unique location.
