Seattle Bars

While visiting Seattle, be sure to visit a few of the city’s great bars. For drinks, I recommend Pacific Inn, a nautical-themed dive bar in Fremont. Their beer is Manny’s and their margaritas are excellent. There are many other excellent bars to choose from, as well. These are listed in this article. But if you’re looking for an experience that’s truly unique, visit the Pine Box or Lucky Envelope.

The Nook

Intimate yet sophisticated, The Nook is a two-story bar run by brothers Jimmy and Johnny Rolfe. These drinkmakers spent four months looking for the perfect glassware for each drink. As a result, every drink here has its own special touch. The bar’s atmosphere is both relaxing and intimate, and it’s the perfect place to catch up with friends or family. However, before you sit down to drink at The Nook, you should take a look at its Yelp ratings.

The Pine Box

The Pine Box is a new Seattle bar that specializes in craft beers on tap and New American fare. The bar’s location is a former mortuary, which gives it a cathedral-like ceiling. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and the bar staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The beer selection is extensive, and the food is fresh and well-prepared. A fun, unique atmosphere awaits you at The Pine Box.

The Lucky Envelope

If you’re interested in craft beer in Seattle, you should definitely check out Lucky Envelope Brewing. The brewery’s name was chosen by Raymond Kwan and Barry Chan to honor their Chinese heritage and capture the lucky spirit of red envelopes. Guests can enjoy beers like Peanut Butter Cream Stout and Two Pepper Pale Ale. This bar offers food trucks on Thursdays and Fridays. The Lucky Envelope is a new addition to Ballard’s beer brewing district.

The Nest at The Thompson Hotel

The Nest at The Thompson Hotel in Seattle is an opulent hotel bar with expansive views and a stellar selection of large-format cocktails and gourmet nibbles. The rooftop bar serves cocktails and gourmet bites in addition to a varied wine list. While the view is stunning, there are also plenty of places to eat, so it pays to be prepared to travel a little. However, you’ll need to make a reservation ahead of time.

Chuck’s Hop Shop

If you love craft beer, Chuck’s Hop Shop is the place for you. They sell hundreds of different varieties of bottled beer and 30 different craft brews on tap. You can buy pints or growlers to bring home. The beer menu is extensive, with plenty of options for every palate. There are even a few specialties for a beer connoisseur to try. During your next trip to Seattle, don’t forget to check out their extensive selection of bottled brews.


A unique bar, Unicorn in Capitol Hill has the atmosphere of a carnival. The music is loud, the decor is colorful, and the drinks are top notch. There are many different fun things to do here, including arcade games, corn dogs, and cocktail specials. Located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, Unicorn is a fun place to spend a night out with friends. While you’re there, try one of the floats, a bubble gum vodka shot, or even a unicorn shot!
