Hidden in plain sight, Knee High Stocking Co. is a speakeasy cocktail bar in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Founded in 2009, our mission is to chase perfection and share our love-affair with the cocktail. ¬†Building on the great traditions of classic American and French cocktailing from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, our drinks are accurately crafted, flavor balanced, full-bodied, and strong. We’ve tailored our menu to satisfy a variety of palates, and our professional bartenders will always create a new cocktail to your individual tastes.

Such is the tradition of a speakeasy. On January 16th, 1920 the 18th Amendment was enacted, prohibiting the manufacture, sale, transport, and possession of alcohol in the United States. The law merely moved the regular business of alcohol consumption underground, and we became a nation of closeted drinkers. Until the amendment was repealed in 1933, illegal bars masqueraded as toy stores or dress shops in apartments and abandoned storefronts. Misleading entrances were the norm, and patrons often had to know the password or have a membership card to get in. At the very least they had to summon the courage to ring the bell at an unmarked door.
