Little Tin is a speakeasy-style bar that offers the flavors of Hawaii, a touch of New York City, and dog-friendly digs! #k5evening
SEATTLE – For a little piece of paradise in Seattle, visit Little Tin in Ballard.
The brainchild of partners Kalei Apo and Frankie Goodman, Little Tin is a speakeasy-style bar with exposed brick walls, a ton of lush pothos plants, and a touch of Hawaii — which makes sense since Apo and Goodman met in Kauai .
Apo is from Hawaii and owns another bar there – the Nawiliwili Tavern – while Frankie is from New York City. They combined their backgrounds to create Little Tin, which specializes in sharing appetizers and cocktails. Apo designed the space himself, while Goodman takes care of the drinks program.
Here you’ll find drinks like Birds and the Bees, a rose-geranium sour with coconut milk, and Ono pork dumplings — which really are Ono.
Little Tin’s place is very cool and cozy inside – and outside they have a beautiful garden with small tents and toasty radiators. Bonus – Little Tin is dog friendly as long as the dogs are leashed and friendly. This policy is inspired by their own dachshund, Charlie, who loves sweaters and sleeps great.
Apo and Goodman wanted to create a place that was queer, women-friendly and BIPOC-friendly — and they hope people from all walks of life will enjoy a drink at Little Tin.
