A great time and a must-visit piece of Seattle history – Without a doubt the best dive bar on the North end of town. It’s a good thing that The Cabin is crammed with local historical significance (it was one of the first 6 establishments in WA State to be granted a liquor license after prohibition), or else there might not be enough people to keep it in business. Which would really be too bad, because this tavern set against a backdrop of multi-million dollar Richmond Beach homes is full of character. The bar is as (angularly) crooked as the floor and ceiling, the jukebox is always playing something good, and in the summer you can hang on the patio and catch a great breeze blowing in off the Sound. The food isn’t anything to smirk at either, especially by typical pub grub standards. Couple this with The Cabin’s full bar and great selection of microbrews, and you’ve just found yourself the perfect place to kick back and have a good time.
A true classic in Shoreline – This little tavern, the only one near the Richmond Beach waterfront, has survived Prohibition, the gentrification of RB, and efforts by locals to close it down. Begun during Prohibition to serve the "resort trade" as a cafe. When America returned to sanity, it bacame a tavern. The current owner/manager/bartender makes good soups, good sandwiches, and generous protions of each. Sadly, the former owner, who sold the property early in 2005, took his two delightful dogs with him. But the jukebox, the pool table and the ambience are still there.
