Best Petite Pendleton Cocktail Escape: Saeso

If you’re looking for an otherworldly escape without leaving the city, or a cocktail menu that takes the work out of ordering, Saeso might just be your new neighborhood bar. Designed by duo Christy Wulfson and Michael Guilfoil, the bar is adjacent to their other project The Carriage House, a posh Pendleton Airbnb just off 13th Street. With a straightforward and simple drink menu, 12 seats at the bar and a terracotta glow, Saeso is equal parts familiar and foreign, reminiscent of many places all at once. “Everyone who walks in here (says) it reminds them of somewhere they’ve been, and no one ever says the same place; Argentina, Mexico City, Lisbon, Rome, all across the globe,” Wulfson says.
