Happy Hour Report: The Six Seven lounge in the waterfront Edgewater Hotel has gourmet happy-hour fare (lamb sliders, yellowfin tuna fish tacos) and $3.75 to $6 drink deals Sundays-Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m.

The Edgewater Hotel is aptly named. It’s built high over a pier, and whether you sit outside or against the floor-to-ceiling windows with your happy-hour sliders, you are sitting over Elliott Bay.

This gives the illusion that you are eating on a yacht in the middle of Puget Sound. Or hanging out on the ship deck on some Carnival Cruise. I half expected Captain Stubing, Gopher and Washington to serve me.

With its panoramic view and outdoor seating, the Six Seven lounge inside this waterfront hotel is hard to beat as a summer happy-hour destination. The lounge gives bar food a gourmet twist, such as lamb sliders served with Tandoori Lentil chips, and sushi-grade yellowfin tuna tacos with sriracha aioli — both $5 and both stellar. It’s perplexing, though, that the same kitchen can also mess up some pretty standard happy-hour fare. The Kobe sliders were dried out. And I tasted lots of dough but little cod in the fish and chips.

Most bars target the Cosmo crowd or the cocktail geeks. This lounge aims to please both — with happy-hour pomegranate Cosmos and a pineapple vodka martini — while providing its own spin on such classic cocktails as the Old Fashioned and Dark and Stormy.

Six Seven, 2411 Alaskan Way, Pier 67, inside Edgewater Hotel, offers happy hour Sundays-Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m., with $5 gourmet bar food, $6 selected wines and cocktails, and $3.75 beer (206-269-4575 or www.edgewaterhotel.com).
