With that in mind, acclaimed chef Renee Erickson’s new bar, Deep Dive, is Seattle’s most dramatic and opulent. The bar is located at the base of the Amazon Spheres in Denny Triangle. Also, Deep Dive has a moody atmosphere in stark contrast to the bright, naturally lit greenhouses above.

Further, it has all navy velvet seating, low lighting, and shiny curios backlit behind glass. Additionally, the bar has various types of seating – including a tufted banquette – are upholstered with dark blue velvet.

According to Seatle Magazine article, “Nautical-themed bars are nothing new in Seattle; they’re not even new to Renee Erickson, who’s built an empire on oysters and whimsy and clever sea-related names. But the renowned chef’s new spot, Deep Dive, which she opened with co-owners Jeremy Price and Chad Dale, takes the idea of a theme bar and turns it up to 11. And somehow, it doesn’t come off as campy.”

Even more, Deep Dive was honored by Eater Awards 2018 and won the Design of the Year Prize.

This year, 2019, Deep Dive is one of the awards entries to the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards 2019.

In addition to an extensive cocktail list, the bar offers snacks such as cured salmon and caviar toast. Offerings are presented in a leather-bound menu.

Cocktails are a mix of dialed-in classics, including a Singapore Sling, and well-balanced originals, like the Passion Pit with aquavit and golden beets.

Unlike Erickson’s other eateries inside the Amazon Spheres, Deep Dive is open to the public, though with only 30 seats and no reservations it’s still pretty exclusive.

Eventually, if you’re working on an interior décor project, take a look at the bar chairs and dining chairs used on Deep Dive.
