Not far from Pike Public Market up the street on 1st Avenue, this is a popular ‘brew stop` and eatery in Belltown, where we munched and wet (if not whet) our whistle. It’s been around since the very early 1900’s and has an excellent variety...More

We stopped for drinks after tackling the hills of Seattle. Pleasant service, generous wine pours, lovely space and a nice view from our corner table. Having been fully rejuvenated, we proceeded to tackle yet another hill up to our son's office.
