SEATTLE — With creative cocktails galore and the rumored best chicken sandwich in Seattle, Ben Paris in the State Hotel is quickly become a hot spot.

One of the defining factors of Ben Paris is its Bar Manager, Abigail Gullo. Gullo is a master mixologist who's worked in New York, New Orleans, and now in Seattle. She's won numerous awards throughout the years, and now calls Ben Paris home.

You'll find drinks like the Gin Griffey Juniper on the cocktail menu, which is not only a play on Ken Griffey Jr.'s name, but a delicious gin cocktail filled with flowers and fruit.
