Eschewing hard alcohol and food service, this Capitol Hill bar keeps it simple with beer and board games. Offerings (both playable and drinkable) are extensive and eclectic, and hungry patrons will delight in permission to order in their own grub.
Everyone in Ballard knows this German pub for its distinct and deliciously deep-fried pickle. Often overlooked, however, is the great selection of group games like 20 Questions and Battle of the Sexes, which make for an engaging after-work romp.
If free peanuts, late-night tamale carts, and weekend DJs don't lure you to this Georgetown dive, the games surely will. From Ms. Pacman and pinball to shuffleboard and free pool, there's something for every player and ample cheap beer on tap.
Although it boasts seven pool tables, this Eastlake bar offers far more than just billiards and brews. Anglophiles will delight in the regulation snooker ball table while skeeball, shuffleboard and dart boards keep the rest of us Yankees amused.
With an enormous patio boasting several ping pong tables, its no wonder that this Roosevelt tavern is a hot summer spot. Nuts are the only food served, but when eaten piping hot with freshly squeezed juice, they are perfect al fresco fare.
