personification of "Dive Bar".
The Comet is the personification of the phrase "Dive bar", that being said it is one of my favorite places to drink at in Seattle.
I've always had good service from the bar staff, true it is dirty but if you want luxurious carpets, expensive wine and romantic lighting than the Comet is not your place.
If you're looking for a rock n roll type dive bar than try the Comet, you'll like it.
Clique-y. This is NOT a place to go alone or to celebrate your 21st. Snobby service and clique-ish crowd. Don't go if you don't know the "in-crowd". You will be more than likely ignored by the bartender.
Comet-ted to good times and quality beer. When you've flown nearly 6000 miles, the last thing your thirsty traveller needs is a pretentious drinking den populated by plastic people drinking extravagantly named alcopops. Fortunately, The Comet provides the remedy for this with its refreshingly convivial environment which is a great hang-out for a beer at any time, with friendly staff and customers providing a relaxed and informal atmosphere. It's also a great place to practice the fine art of pool. In fact, I'd say half the people I visit in Seattle I originally met in The Comet! Very reminiscent of my local at home - The Old Market Inn in Kettering, England. I arrive in your fair city on July 23rd 2002. Mine's a Hales!
