We first posted about Rachel’s Ginger Beer before their grand opening here in Pike Place Market last month. Now that they have been open for a few weeks, we’ve come to really enjoy having them so close by. During the day, their range of ginger beer is the most refreshing treat on a hot day. It’s a toss-up between the strawberry or apricot for favorite flavor here at the Inn at the Market.
But some might say the best thing about Rachel’s Ginger Beer is the cocktail menu. The menu offers both the Moscow Mule, made with Vodka, and the Montana Mule, made with whiskey, but the Frozen Strawberry Mule might just take the cake; a blended mix of RGB, Vodka, and fresh strawberries. Don’t limit yourself, any of their cocktails can be made into a blended drink. Next time you’re in the downtown Seattle area, stop on by!
We also really love their Pike Place Market inspired mural:
Rachel’s Ginger Beer is open 10am-10pm, 7 days a week. Located directly across the street from our valet zone on Pine St.
One of the best things about being in the Pike Place Market, is having so many choices of where to eat lunch! One of our favorites is Michou, a local deli that offers just about anything your heart desires. Michou offers a selection of paninis that can’t be beat, world class salads, baked potatoes, pasta and an entire case of sweet treats to choose from. Some of our favorites are the kale ceasar salad, sierra chicken panini, and the homemade nanaimo bars. Daily soup selections are coveted, get there early if you want your top pick. Locals know that if you go at noon, you’re going to stand in line, but it’s worth the wait.
Here at the Inn at the Market, we recommend Michou to guests looking for food to take up to our water view deck, or to take on their journey as they depart. Michou is open daily 9am-5pm.
The new exhibit that opened last month at the Seattle Art Museum is not to be missed! Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion showcases the innovation of Japanese fashion from the past three decades. Prepare to be blown away by these visual displays of color, texture and aesthetic creativity.

This collection of old world European classics comes from the Kenwood House at Hampstead Heath on the outskirts of London. Just this week we were able to get a sneak peek and the exhibit is truly historic! This is the first American tour of these works, and Seattle is the only west coast stop of four.
