Fog Room: Seattle’s Newest Rooftop Bar

Curio Collection by Hilton’s Charter Hotel opened in late August with 16 floors and 229 guest rooms in downtown on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Stewart. Features include a rooftop bar and lounge Fog Room and Argentine-inspired restaurant Patagōn.

Fog Room is a stunning indoor-outdoor rooftop bar and lounge on the 16th floor with sweeping views of Puget Sound and the Seattle Great Wheel. The chic lounge blends a sultry ambiance with luxurious cocktails and small bites and shared plates.

Open daily from 3pm to midnight, the airy space features live music throughout the week. 

The Balor Club cocktail with novo fogo silver, lemon, orange, cinnamon, sherry, and tiki bitters is fresh and tropical, served over crushed ice and a sprig of mint. Under the ‘Classic Cocktails’ section, the Hanky Panky is mixed up with gin, vermouth rouge, and fernet. This smooth amber aperitif has a sweet edge and a hint of orange.   

If you’re looking for a spirit-free drink, the New Day with white peaches, lemon, grenadine, and soda water is effervescent and not overly sweet. 

The menu has small bites as well as more entrée-sized plates. For something to nibble on, the Hamachi with uni and soy glaze, Skewered Sweetbreads, and Radishes with smoked butter and sea salt are all delicious choices. Larger plates include Grilled Pork Belly with charred rapini and gochujang suace ($15) and Seared Foie Gras with tomato confit and pepitas ($23).

On the hotel’s ground floor is Patagōn, an Argentine-inspired restaurant anchored in the middle by a massive, custom-built open grill, known as a Parilla, tended to by skilled grilling artisans known as asadores.

The grill-forward menu draws from classic Argentine cooking techniques, paired with fresh local Northwest ingredients. Menu items include dishes such as chorizo biscuits, beef-stuffed empanadas, grilled sweet breads with Dungeness crab, plus a well curated wine and cocktail list featuring local favorites and South American best bets. Open daily from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm.
