    The Showbox: My newest favorite music venue!

    by Summer33 Written Dec 1, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After 22 years of living here I had never seen a concert at the Showbox one of the very best music halls in Seattle. We had the most amazing time ever. We had a chance to see De la Soul in November '04, first we went to Pike Place Pub and Brewery across the street to get dinner and drinks then we headed over to the concert and sat in the bar until they let us in the show. Inside the show there are 2 huge bars as well, we were down on the floor dancing the whole time but the place is so much bigger then I imagined and it was just such a great place to see a show.

    Dress Code: Depends on the show, check their website sometimes hats, jeans, etc aren't permitted.

    Finn MacCool's: Beer, Fun, People

    by racheljapi Written Nov 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is always good for a beer but is the best on Sundays. First off, it's 50% off of everything Sundays from 8pm to Close. Secondly, 50% off of everything means it's packed on Sundays. It's a great place to meet undergrads to post-docs. The bartenders are cool, smoking is allowed, and there are plenty of people who want to chat.

    Dress Code: Casual. Jeans and cute t-shirt

    Anywhere...: Looking to watch a live band or concert?

    by leebee1 Written Nov 5, 2004

    If your looking to check out the live music scene in Seattle, I recommend picking up a copy of the local music publication, The Stranger. Im pretty sure it comes out each week on either Wednesday or Thursday. Its a free mag, and you can pick it up from the little street not sure what they are called???

    McMenamin's: Great Beer on Queen Anne

    by sarahandgareth Written Jun 3, 2004

    While McMenamin's also does good food, it's biggest attraction is as a local watering hole for people in Queen Anne. And, best of all, the beer is fabulous. McMenamin's produces its own range of brews, and they're all of a very high standard. We love the Terminator Stout, for the name and the taste. McMenamin's is part of a larger group of pubs scattered across the Pacific Northwest but there's not a hint of a chain here, just an old-fashioned welcome, fine beer and plenty of stools to facilitate sippers.

    Dress Code: Casual is the order of the day, and night, here.

    The Ram: Burger and a beer!

    by Summer33 Written Jun 1, 2004

    This is a great place to have one of their wonderful Big Horn beers that they brew right there in the restaurant or one of the many great pub foods. The bar is enormous and mostly caters to the UW students but it's a great place to sit back and watch a game or just catch up with friends. There are several locations I'm talking about the one in University Village.

    Dress Code: casual

    Fiddlers Inn: Best damn neighborhood bar around!

    by Summer33 Written May 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great place to kick back grab a pitcher of beer and an amazing meal. They have quite the menu there and live music on certains days of the month. It's a beer only type bar, you know the places, and it's everything you could want from your neighborhood pub. The menu is amazing, sandwiches, soups, pizza and great salads. If your thirsty and just want to relax and even hear some music friday, saturday or sunday stop by the Fiddlers Inn.

    Look for this sign on 35th

    The Dubliner: Dubliner Irish Bar

    by Summer33 Written May 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great bar to get a drink and an appetizer and listen to some great bands. You have to pay a cover on Friday and Saturday for the bands and sometimes it can get pretty packed, during the Fremont Oktoberfest they weren't even letting anymore people into the bar it was so packed but this is rare. On a Sunday afternoon or weekday after work enjoy one of the 18 beers on tap or their very simple yet very delicious appetizers like sandwiches, irish stew, fish n chips or a burger. The best part of the bar are the big tvs with pool tables and the back room that has low lighting and big comfy plush couches!
    happy hour is 3-6pm monday -Friday with cheap pints.
    Here is a website where you can find drink specials:

    Dimitrious Jazz Alley: Jazz Alley

    by Summer33 Written Feb 3, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great place if you like jazz or blues. The dining room is set up great with all the seats surrounding the stage, no such thing as a bad view. Buy a bottle of wine or enjoy dinner and enjoy a great show. If Taj Mahal is ever in town I recommend catching him at Jazz of the best shows I've ever seen. My main recommendation...reservations!

    Dress Code: Dress like your going out to dinner and show, nothing to fancy but I wouldn't wear jeans or sandals.
