Drinks on Capitol Hill in Seattle tonight
February 15, 2018 11:45 AM   Subscribe

My friend and I get drinks after work about once a month. We usually stay downtown, or if we go up the hill we go to Linda’s. Help us branch out!

We like to eat a light(ish) dinner and have 1-2 drinks each and just talk for a couple hours. So we’re looking for somewhere not super noisy or super expensive, where we don’t have to wait too long for a table at 530 pm on a Thursday. My friend is allergic to onions and garlic, so that somewhat limits what cuisines we can eat. Linda’s will always be my favorite but I figured for once I’d look for other options. There are so many bars/restaurants on the hill that I’m completely overwhelmed! Help!

My favorite bar on Capitol Hill is Smith. It's on 15th, not the Pike-Pine area, so that may be too far afield, but that means it's a little more laid back. I have waltzed in there many times at 5ish and never had trouble getting a table. Great bar food, nice drinks, good beer selection, cool atmosphere. Comfy booths to hang out and chat in.

If you love Linda's, you could try Bait Shop on Broadway between Mercer and Roy. It was my go-to when I lived there just two blocks away. The place is slower/quieter than almost any bar in the area and has a blue collar, kitschy atmosphere populated heavily by locals to the neighborhood. My favorite is an order of pan-seared fish tacos, add avocado, with a Coconut Lime Rickey... *wistful sigh*
