Edgewater is in fact a fantastic hotel.
Thanks. Not looking for anything too hardcore just a good hike with good scenery. Something maybe like 4 hours round trip. We gotta drive from Portland to Seattle and we’re gonna do the hike in between.
Yeah, 67 is very mediocre....
This is true. 67 is not in fact a fantastic restaurant however.
Random q - what neighborhood are most of the start up/tech businesses located in Seattle
Pioneer, SLU, and Fremont.
I dont know about Pioneer, but definitely the other two. SLU was the original tech spot, and where Amazon’s campus is. It kinda sucks—zero culture and atmosphere, just brand new buildings and apartments. Only good thing is it has one of the best techno clubs in the city.
Apple just announced plans to hire 2K employees in Interbay, which is adjacent to SLU.
Expedia is going to Interbay. Apple is putting 2k jobs in SLU.
SLU is lorded over by amazon at this point, so threw out Pioneer for the start up aspect. Was surprised to see how much is happening in downtown right now, upon further research.
Definitely defer to BamaNug, ANTWONE. I don’t live in the area, I just have a satellite office there.
Ate at Shiro's sushi for the first time last night. Absolutely phenomenal.
I did the omakase and it was amazing.
Will be doing tourist stuff downtown Tonight and tomorrow. My brother's ship is in Seattle during Fleet Week so I'm trekking over to see him. I typically like to spend my time in Ballard and Fremont when in area but will need to be proximal to him.. Are there any breweries or gastropubs that are unique anyone would recommend that's within walking distance of Pikes Place (He'll be at pier 66, I'll be a few blocks away)
Right now I'm leaning towards going to Jarr Bar and Vons1000 Spirits for drinks. Wondering if anyone has gone there or recommend something similar.
I don't like Vons1000 too much. Old Stove Brewing is OK, right next to Pike Place.
Holy Mountain is a short uber ride, very good.
Could walk down to Pioneer Square to some cool bars -- Damn the Weather (owned by the band Fleet Foxes), Good Bar, London Plane.
Best IPAs in a city that specializes in hoppy beers. 2 blocks from Pike.
Is Canon worth the price? I'm not one ot be overly impressed by just having a wide selection. Do they have decent drafts as well in case beer is what someone wants to drink? The wine list is absurdly over priced after looking at the menu
It's pretty badass, but I wouldn't go there to drink wine or beer--their whiskey list is what sets them apart. It's also just a really cool atmosphere, and walking distance to a ton of cool spots in caphill.
But it is pricey.
I thought Old Stove was cool.. great views with the windows open
Damn The Weather, The London Plane, and Casco Antiguo were great. I also like the Dough Zone (cheap and cant go wrong with soup dumplings).
Any recs for Capitol Hill/SLU? That’s where I’m staying but have had a shit ton of meetings down in Pioneer Square.
Kedai Makan and Stateside.
In CapHill, favorite bars:
Flatstick Pub is a cool mini-golf bar that just opened a location in SLU
Bartender I was talking to at London Plane sword by Stateside. Said it’s some of the more interesting dishes in Seattle and really well done.
I’ve been meaning to check out flatstick. Trying to convince my colleague to go but she’s a bit dull
Currently at Fremont imo
BamaNug meet me out for a beer
How long are you here? Could do Thurs
Only here for tonight
Corky’s 24 hour tour
How is Washington National? Playing in a golf tournament there beginning of September
Haven't played any golf since moving out here...just sold my clubs so I guess I'm officially retired.
You in town Friday? Let's go to Flatstick pub
I just got back from Seattle. One of my favorite cities every single time I visit.
Was at Fremont Friday after dinner at Manolin.
Manolin is sooo good.
Sept 9-12 and again Oct 17-24 with Fancy, local Seattle legend
Speaking of October, BamaNug you should probably do Yakima’s fresh hop festival at some point in your life.
October 5? That's a possibility.
$138 RT from San Diego to Seattle in November. Haven’t been since 2016. I’m ready.
Update: I’m in you Seattle
Where are you staying?
I will be in your city this weekend. What should I do?
Where you staying?
Right near Pikes place market
I’m up for hire if you need a late night chauffeur.
edit to clarify inside jokes between Seattleites, the notoriety of my own locale (hours away), and recent crime popping off around Pike at night. You’ll be fine.
Cloudburst brewing is right by the market, and is one of the best breweries in the city. Definitely check that out.
If you're a big beer guy, Holy Mountain is a 5 minute Uber ride up the road. Those 2 are my favorite breweries in the city.
Le Pichet is a famous French restaurant with awesome coffee (one of Anthony Bourdain's favorite spots). Very cool place
Biscuit Bitch is a huge gut bomb, but has AWESOME breakfast -- just super unhealthy
Try to check out the Market early in the AM -- before 9 AM -- or late in the evening -- around 6 PM. It's cool, I still go there from time to time, but it's so damn crowded
The Pink Door is a fancy Italian restaurant -- I've never been, but all my friends that have been love it
Shiro's - famous sushi spot, will cost you a lot, but worth it
Ballard and Fremont are cool areas, but will require an Uber ride up North. Ballard is kind of the "young professionals" area, tons of breweries (Stoup, Reuben's, Populuxe, to name a few) and tons of new restaurants (Walrus & Carpenter is probably the most famous -- seafood and oysters). Very popular. Fremont is a little more quirky and chill vibe. Fremont Brewing is one of the most famous in the city, and right down the road from "downtown Fremont," with a lot of restaurants.
Capitol Hill is the hipster area, much younger crowd. Awesome dive bars: Linda's Tavern, Montana Bar, Revolver Bar. If you want nicer, Canon is a super cool whiskey bar, but fancy and expensive. Pretty much any type of cuisine you could want in CapHill, but some options:
Stateside - Vietnamese/French fusion. Have never had a bad meal here
Tons of really good ramen spots - my favorite is Ooink, small little place in a strip mall
Nue - cuisine from all over the world, always changing menu. Highly recommend
Bateau - fancy steakhouse
You're also close to Pioneer Square, a bit south of the market. It's got a lot of old buildings and one of the few parts near downtown that has not succumbed to new development (but that's changing). However, it's the epicenter of homelessness in Seattle (which is saying a lot). But has a ton of cool bars and restaurants.
The new Old Stove brewing location is awesome. It’s right behind Pike Market. Beers are decent to solid. Cloudburst is definitely the best IPA brewery in Seattle. Holy Mountain is great for saisons and funky beers.
I’ll be up in Seattle in 2 weeks.
I haven't been to the new Old Stove, but have heard great things. Their beer is pretty good, but that new spot on top of the market is dope.
Of course, it's rained for about 20 days straight so probably hasn't been too popular. About to set a record for rainiest January: https://mynorthwest.com/1691599/seattle-rainy-days-january-2020/
Went around this time last year, Cloudburst is really good. Also hit up Fremont, Stoup, Reuben's Brews, and Peddler. Think Reuben's and Stoup were my favorites out of those breweries.
JuneBaby is great if you like southern food. We had a big group so we were able to get a reservation and did a sharing/tasting menu for $45-50pp which was awesome.
Also ate at Kedai Makan and Stateside. Both were excellent. Great city if you like eating and drinking.
Get blazed up and walk through Seattle Art Museum, Olympic Sculpture Park, Experience Music Project and/or University of Washington campus is my best rec
Also Chihuly Gardens and Glass
Stoup is awesome, but they primarily do IPAs in a city that specializes in IPAs, so can see people wanting to switch it up (Cloudburst does too, but Cloudburst is best). Peddler's has a great beer garden.
Kedai Makan is the tittttts
I live right across the street from Olympic Sculpture Park. Weather permitting, I take my dog there pretty much every day. On a clear day, has one of the best views of the mountains in the city.
Thanks for the suggestions. The rain certainly made things difficult.
We did Pink Door, The Crumpet Shop, Mamnoon, Cafe Campagne, Casco Antingua, and Deep Dive.
Fun times. I need to go back with better weather.
soulfly I’m at Single Hill brewery in “downtown” Yakima for work. Emphasis on the quotes.
