During a random night in lower Queen Anne, I stumbled into Oskar's Kitchen and ended up grooving to the sounds of DJ Topspin for hours. From that moment on I made it a point to stay updated on his rotating sets, not only because he's a dope DJ, but being new-ish to Seattle I figured a DJ would be the best source for all things fun.
Summer is a few weeks away and one of the events sure to become a staple in my weekly rotation are the "Sip & Sin" nights at the W Hotel Seattle.
Hosted in the hotel's TRACE Bar and Lobby, the weekly events feature a rotating lineup of DJs and are broken into two categories:
SIP - Social Interactive Playtime: Every Wed and Thurs from 8p - Midnight. Features happy hour specials from 4p - 7p and 10p - Midnight. Note: Wednesday nights the DJs will spin traditional vinyl, so this is the night I prefer to attend.
Tips: Wednesday night is Ladies Night and features specials for women all night long. Also, their food is BOMB! I suggest getting there between 6p and 630p to take advantage of their food/drinks specials, then waiting until 8p to order your next round of drinks (ladies). The discount is about $4 to $6 off regular drinks, so it's a solid deal.
SIN - Social Interactive Nighttime: Every Fri and Sat from 930p - 130a. This also features happy hours specials from 4p-7p and 10p - Midnight.
I am not one to send people off, so I suggest checking out the event on either June 3rd (Wed - SIP) or June 19th (Fri - SIN) when DJ Topspin will be there. Here's a preview of his magic hands...
