[SEA] Happy hour near 7th and Pike?

Lookin' for cheap, but good, drinks (AND food)!!! Nothing too noisy, crowded, etc.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hmmm. By definition, most happy hours with good food, drinks (cheap) are going to be noisy and crowded! So this is a tough one. I'd walk up to Chapel, on Pine and Melrose (just above I-5, it would be less than a 10 minute walk). They have $4 martinis (HUGE menu) and great happy hour food from 5-7 (?) pm. If you get there right at 5pm you can snag a table on the balcony, upstairs, which will be quieter than the main bar. The bar is in an old funeral home and there is no sign outside.

    1. vessel has a pretty good happy hour. union? brasa, but it's a little farther from where you are.

        although i like Vessel, i'm not sure it qualifies as cheap ($10 drinks) compared to other happy hour places, and does not have typical happy-hour bites if that is what the OP is looking for. Also being a small place, it can get crowded quickly.

      2. Ruth Chris has a good happy hour about a block from your specified location. If you want quieter then Tao on 4th and Stewart is sort of an undiscovered gem. $4 house wine and $5 or less appetizers like spring rolls and phad thai.

        1. Bambuza has $1.50 appetizers and a drink special.
          Union Grill has a sliding scale HH from 3 to 6.
          Game Works has a 1/2 priced HH. I haven't been to this, but others claim it's a good deal.
