Seattle after dark. Not known for its late night reputation there are still plenty of places to drink and dine into the wee hours in Seattle. Here are a few joints you may find yourself hanging out in as the bewitching hour approaches.
Grab a corner table and settle in with a cold pint while you wait for your friends. Great happy hour prices and the kitchen knocks out some pretty impressive dishes as well. And if you need to get rid of that gum you've been chewing on - Seattle's famous 'gum wall' is right out the door and just two steps away.
If you're a breakfast at midnight type of person this is certainly the joint for you. Doors to this popular late night eatery don't even open up until midnight. Classic fare awaits the hungry masses.
Seattle is not known for its late night spots but at Beth's cafe the party never ends. Even if it's your first time you'll end up leaving Beth's feeling like a regular.
A Seattle institution. Their philosophy is to do a few things and to do them well. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, shakes and fries...that's about it - and they do them well. That's all you need to know about Dick's.
On the weekend, this joint stays open until 4:00 am at which time they lock up, go home and rest, then start serving it all up again three hours later at 7:00 am. They also have a great Happy Hour window during the week from 3:00 - 7:00 pm.
If you're in Greenlake and looking for a party - look no further than the Hen. Live music, serious drinking and boisterous karaoke are all part of the equation.
18 beers on tap and a bottle list that is as long as Aurora Ave...what's not to like about this tavern dedicated to all things beer. If the beer doesn't warm you up the seating around the mini-fire pits certainly will.
When the sun is out, get there right when the doors open for happy hour and head to the back patio for a beer and a view of the Needle. When it's dark and rainy, hunker down inside and take the chill off with some comfort food (like the baked Mac & Cheese) and two fingers of Knob Creek.
Smack dab in the middle of downtown, this is the perfect place for office workers to grab a $6 Manhattan during Happy Hour. Not just for working stiffs though, belly up to this sleek bar anytime of the day for some of the best cocktails and bites this city has to offer.
Tasty cocktails, plates of french-inspired fare and a room that is a visual treat - that's what keeps me coming back to Bastille. Grab a seat under the Paris Metro clock and start your night (or afternoon) off right with a glass of bubbly and a dozen oysters.
This is one of those magical places you trip across and never want to leave. A small bar upstairs is well appointed with a horseshoe bar - but not much room for anything else. The downstairs, equally as cozy, does afford more room for relaxing over a drink or two with close friends.
This room is magic. It's dimly lit, has wood-paneled walls and comfy leather chairs flanking the fireplace - it's the perfect place to duck into to grab a late night nosh and a scotch on the rocks.
