Alki Tavern

The Alki Tavern is exactly what a Seattle dive bar should be. A gaggle of interesting and friendly regulars, under the boozed up tutelage of the bartenders, start commandeering the barstools right after work and don't vacate until last call and the view from the Alki Tavern, fueled by hordes of liquor or not, is one of the best of Seattle. The drinks at this local dive are served fast, furious and cheap—sort of like the Alki Tavern's food—try to catch 'em on Thursdays for tacos.
