Seattle Weekly's Description

You'd think a Ballard hole-in-the-wall operated by a pair of local rock warriors would be drenched in urine, Pabst, and Evan Williams whiskey (not that there's anything wrong with the poor man's Jack Daniel's). But with Hazlewood, which counts ex-Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd and current Droo Church bassist/bartender Drew Church among its quartet of owners, you'd be dead wrong. With chandeliers, a velvety balcony, premium champagne, and a delectable ginger-Maker's specialty drink, the pair has created, as Hattie's Hat alum Church puts it, "an old-timey, turn-of-the-century type of place where we could imagine Vincent Price and Lee Hazlewood hanging out." They've succeeded, but not at the expense of enticing a diverse crowd with nightly spins from guest DJs procured by nearby Sonic Boom Records.

    Always my first stop...and often my only! Dark (but perfectly lit), great atmosphere, intimate without being intimidatingly so. Some red wine and good company in this great space and you've got yourself an evening.

    In an era where craft-cocktail bars are 
too-often bedeviled by fastidious exactitude, Hazlewood employs a refreshing lil’ bit of this, lil’ bit of that approach to mixing drinks…and everything else.
