Great Bar - $10 Johnny Walker Greens! Can't Beat That!.
Happened to look out the window one time when driving by this place and made a mental note to come back. I'm glad I did. I needed to fill some time before a Marines Game (sorry, I'm a Red Sox fan) and made my way about two blocks South of the park and found Hooverville directly across from the new Showbox Sodo.
A relaxed atomosphere, free peanuts, pinball, video games, huge bar. Struck up a conversation with a few locals next to me, which never happens here, a sign of a good bar, a place where you can have a conversation with a stranger. The clincher for me was when I noticed some high end scotch behind the bar and asked what the price was for a the Johnny Walker Green (hadn't seen that one before, I think they also had Gold and Black) and was expecting to hear something in the $20 - $30 range. The bartender said they went for $10! I mentioned how that was quite reasonable and his reply was "Good Scotch should be shared." How can you not love a place with a philosophy like that?
Make a trip here before or after your next Mariners game, you will not be disappointed.
My new favorite bar.
Love this place. Reminds me of bars in Georgetown -- similar charm and high ceilings, and who can beat free peanuts??? Plus they have pinball, and everyone that works there is super nice.
