Fu Kun Wu Lounge at Thaiku - CLOSED

Map & Directions 5410 Ballard Ave.
Seattle, WA 98107
  • Daily 5pm-12am


Seattle Weekly's Description

If the typical Makers and soda or PBR isn't quite doing it for ya these days, Ballard's Fu Kun Wu has got the prescription. At least the Chinese herbal kind: If Bastyr had a bar, it might include some of the concoctions that the somewhat secret spot (located in the back of a Thai restaurant, with little signage) lists on its exotic menu. Those looking to score should order the "Yojito," a spin on the traditional mojito, with added yohimbe-a rumored natural libido enhancer. Careful, though-the rise this cocktail can elicit isn't always desired. Folks with heart conditions are advised to stick to just one, as it can cause a spike in blood pressure. Those looking to satiate an appetite of another kind can order up spicy plates of Thai food from the kitchen (though near to the well-lit dining room up front, the bar feels worlds away with its dark teak furniture and East Asian-inspired fixtures) or just enjoy the live jazz (on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning at 8:30) as the cocktails (and perhaps your date) begin to take hold.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. On a date, order anything with the aphrodisiac yohimbine in it.

    #27 is the best wide noodle fish I have ever had.

    Oolong-tini (oolong tea infused vodka). Heaven in a glass. But get it early, they usually run out.
