Elliot's Oyster Happy Hour & kid?
We're ramping up for a trip to Seattle in October. My 15 year old loves his oysters. Can he join me for the oyster progressive happy hour at Elliot's (a screaming deal much lauded here), or would the State of Washington's no-kids-in-bars rule prevent this?
Both minors and happy hour coexist in the "bar adjacent" area across from the host station by the windows.
It's not legally the bar itself (which is separated by a railing, as it is in virtually all Washington restaurants with liquor licenses.)
Go, bring your kid. Just don't expect to get a seat at 3:30. Be there a few minutes before 3 or risk having the only available seats be at the bar itself (where your son won't be allowed.)
Depending on the weather you could sit outside & maybe circumvent the rule. There's also an area separated from the bar by a wall of windows that may do the trick. Best, though, is to simply call or email & ask them direct. Wish I'd known about oysters when I was 15...
