Seahawks, Sounders, and Storm—yes, Seattle has sports. The 12s are loud, proud, and need a place to gather for the game. If you can’t make it to the stadium, your team is on the road, or–in some instances–you want to watch a non-Seattle team, these are the sports bars to frequent.
This official U.S. soccer bar is “your English Premier League, Seattle Sounders & World Cup Headquarters!” With partners such as the Seattle chapter of the American Outlaws, Manchester United USA, Arsenal America, and the Seattle Reign, they offer lunch, dinner, and late-night (10 pm to midnight) menus all week long. On Saturday and Sunday, they offer breakfast. This neighborhood pub, which opened in 2004, has two loyalties: soccer and Seattle. So you may find them watching the Seahawks too.
This sports bar sits in a former machine shop and retains that industrial vibe. With a garage door that opens up onto their outside patio, the Ballard Loft has 12 rotating beers on tap, specialty cocktails, shuffleboard, pool, video games, and trivia night. From collegiate basketball and NASCAR to the NFL, WNBA, and beyond, they can display pretty much any sports team that their patrons request on any of their 23 flat-screen televisions. Plus, in true Seattle style, they participate in green business and building practices.
Buckley’s in Belltown provides its patrons with options. First of all, they have their own fan clubs for various teams, including the Washington Huskies, Indiana Hoosiers, and Philadelphia Eagles. There are 22-plus TVs and a five-foot projection screen, as well as private dining options. With Late Night Happy Hour on most nights from 10 pm until closing, local brews, and event nights with trivia and live music, Buckley’s in Belltown is sure to keep you entertained.
Laying claim as “Seattle’s Original Alehouse,” Cooper’s Alehouse is a quality neighborhood bar featuring craft beers. The 22 rotating tap options are also available as growler fills. With seven HDTVs, pool, darts, and a jukebox to keep the customers entertained, they also offer trivia, a dart league, and free poker—all weekly. In case you’re not big on beer, they have a full bar and some lovely wines as well!
A full-service bar and restaurant, Quality Athletics is “not your daddy’s bar.” It offers 16 TVs, an Astroturf back bar, indoor and outdoor seating (with fire pits outside), and their private event space: the Locker Room. The room can seat up to 100 people, or you can just book the whole restaurant! With a gourmet twist on typical pub grub throughout the menu, don’t miss their Seahawks Brunch, available until 1 pm only on Seahawks home game days.
A bit fancier of a venue, The Westy is “not just another sports bar.” With a focus on hospitality, they offer a wide range of options. With 18 TVs, they can play up to eight games at once, and often for various sports, not just different teams. Their elevated pub-grub menu provides vegetarian and gluten-free possibilities. They even have a private room available. Though they are currently a 21-and-up establishment, they are expanding with a second venue that will welcome all ages during the day.
