Loretta's is the perfect toasty Pacific Northwest hideaway. The massive outdoor space is great during pleasant weather days and fans of Twin Peaks will adore the decor inside. The real gem, though, is not the booze (although the selection is impeccable) but the Tavern Burgers. Single or double patty burgers come wrapped in paper and, unbutton those pants, you’ll want to order a few.
Though Seattle is known for its rainy days, the city does buzz with culture and excitement (and it doesn’t rain all the time). There are so many things to do in Seattle, from amazing museums and verdant parks to top notch attractions, that you’ll want to unwind inside after a long day. While coffee shops may come to mind first, the best bars in Seattle are drinking spots worth checking out.
Seattle has all the characteristics of a Pacific Northwest city—the pioneer spirit, lumberjack influence, a big mountain (Rainier) towering overhead—and many of the best bars, especially classic dives where you go to relax and put a few back, reflect this culture. Other bars aim to serve excellent cocktails in classy environs. Plus, of course, there’s a lot of craft beer. Whatever kind of drinking you desire, Seattle has a bar for it.
