Good Drinks Offers a New Way to Explore and Support Local Bars and Restaurants

Celebrate with us at the Good Drinks Launch Party on June 5 at 6 p.m.

The Seattle Office of Economic Development (OED) is partnering with Seattle Good Business Network to launch Good Drinks — a free digital passport designed to support local bars and restaurants while revitalizing Downtown. Users can check in on their phones at participating locations and earn points that can be redeemed for locally made rewards. Discover a new favorite cocktail, mocktail, or locally produced wine or beer at over 20 participating locations. 

Good Drinks is a digital passport featuring bars and restaurants located in Downtown Seattle, including Belltown, Pioneer Square, and Chinatown-International District. The passport encourages the public to explore Downtown through this incentivized, accessible, and free guide to local establishments. The public is invited to celebrate this initiative at the Good Drinks Launch Party on Wednesday, June 5, from 6-9 p.m. at Here-After (FREE, RSVP required as space is limited). The celebration is sponsored by Do206, Here-After, and Alaska Airlines.

This initiative is part of Mayor Harrell’s Downtown Activation Plan to create a new vision for Downtown together. Downtown Seattle is the heart of our city and is powered by people — residents, workers, business owners, community members, families, visitors, and everyone who calls our city home. The Downtown Activation Plan focuses on bringing more people Downtown with programs like Good Drinks while designing a future that works for all.

“Downtown runs on people, and Good Drinks is a great example of how we’re adding more reasons for people to come Downtown to meet up with friends, or stay a little longer after work,” said Markham McIntyre, Seattle Office of Economic Development Director. “The Good Drinks program celebrates and encourages people to check out the bars, restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment venues that make Downtown both interesting and fun.”

All passport users who download and successfully check in to at least one Good Drinks location during active passport dates will be eligible for a special prize drawing. Prizes include exciting local experiences. 

Good Drinks is part of Seattle Good Business Network’s Seattle Explored program, a collection of free digital passports offering opportunities to discover and support local artists, bars, restaurants, makers, and businesses. The collection of passports also features Seattle Restored, a partnership between the Seattle Office of Economic Development, Seattle Good Business Network, and Shunpike, dedicated to helping small business owners and artists access resources to help start or accelerate their business venture.
