Amazon Community Banana Stand
Amazon headquarters are a few blocks from the hotel. Just look for the giant Amazon Spheres. And while you’re snapping photos, grab a free banana from the outdoor Community Banana Stand. The company’s “banistas” have been handing out the free fruit to everyone since 2015.

This well-curated Italian wine and food shop is where locals go to buy gourmet meats, cheeses and specialty foods in Pike Place Market. If you’re hungry, order an overstuffed Italian sandwich or light bite at the deli counter while picking up some gourmet souvenirs. delaurenti.com
Spice up your life with a stop at this historic specialty emporium. The store traces back to 1911 as a tiny tea and spice shop in Pike Place Market. Today it is the celebrated home to exotic teas, candles, difficult-to-source spices & other specialty foods in Seattle. marketspice.com

Under its ruby red chandeliers, this hip lounge serves some of the best small plates and cocktails in the city. Some consider List the best happy hour in Seattle, with half-off menu items, wine and beer. We especially love the gnocchi in black truffle cream. listbelltown.com
Delicious pub fare, all day breakfasts and juicy burgers keep this duo of family-friendly sports bars true neighborhood favorites. One is in Belltown and the other is in nearby Queen Anne, closer to the Space Needle. buckleyspubs.com
Bathtub Gin & Co.
Tricky to find but worth the effort for these expertly crafted cocktails in the basement boiler room of a former hotel. Head down the alleyway. How’s that for hidden gem? bathtubgininseattle.com
There is no shortage of creative cocktails in this nautically themed speakeasy at the base of the Amazon Spheres. Nothing campy here though. The velvety dining room is as elegant as the upscale fare by chef Renee Erickson, so you feel pretty cool being here. deepdiveseattle.com
