Disclaimer: I'm a Seattleite. This place is something of a local favorite, so take that into account. If you want glam and glitz, or even an audible sound system, go somewhere else (it's cap hill, so that's easy). In fact, my friend one time called this place a bar, "for guys that don't get girls, and are fine with that."... More

Went here late one night with some friends there were many great beers to choose from and not badly priced. This is hole in the wall bar, with some great board games for anyone's choosing on the wall. The bathroom is unisex but its a little run down and dirty try holding it if you're a girl.

Great little hole in the wall watering hole. Board games on shelves by the door and a quiet enough place make it perfect to hang out with people you like and want to talk with. We love going here with our friends to catch up and have a relaxing evening. It's like being at home, but with a bartender. Wide... More
