Stag weekend in seattle??

Hi there,
I am organizing a weekend in Seattle for my friends bachelor party. Any ideas on where to go? All are foodies from Vancouver. Looking for a place with good food, will be a bit of drinking!! ... something suitable for a group of guys thats fairly casual and good atmosphere.. good music would be a good also.

thanks for any help

  1. If I were you, I'd start at Quinn's--great beers, great food, great location--perfect for moving on to more bars without having to change locations.

    1. Volterra may be a good place to think about. It is in the heart of Ballard and is very close to a lot of places to grab a drink before/after. It is a good italian place. Music can be found nearby, but not necessarily in the restaurant.

      1. El Gaucho seems like the kind of place you'd want to kick off a Bachelor party.
        Or maybe Mortons.

        (maybe I'm thinking in too much of a steak frame of mind...)

            HH, guess you just can't stay out of that space, regardless of who is running the kitchen? lol we haven't tried spur yet, but i ususally agree w/ your suggestions, so i will put it on my to do list.

                Thanks for the vote of confidence. I really like what Brian and Dana are doing at Spur (not to mention Dave's cocktails). Their food is affordable, yet inventive. I like the attention to detail with every dish that leaves the kitchen, to the point that Jonathan Kaufman calls them "pretentious." But, as my friends are quick to point out, that's the kind of place I like. Their occasional foray into Molecular Gastronomy is a welcome addition to the Seattle food scene.

                On the stag party topic: not only will you have good food and drinks, you'll be in the heart of Belltown on a weekend night (which is starting to get unbearable for residents, but is just what a stag party coming down from Vancouver is looking for.) See Sound clientele next door often spill into Spur.

            1. thanks for all the suggestions ..
              Spur looks good, so I made a reservation for that.
              If anything else comes to mind, let me know. Its for this Saturday

              thanks again !
