Drinking at the best bars in Seattle is going to be covered in full detail as this post goes along. Some may be searching for a tall glass of beer, a shot of vodka, to save money on liquor during local drink special times, or maybe to sing karaoke and either way you should have a much better understanding of the scene soon.
We will kick this baby off with the best wine and cocktail bars in Seattle. Breweries and sports bars where you can watch the big game or maybe play some pool or throw some darts will get our second section.
The best drink specials at bars near you with cheaper alcohol will come next before we pivot to bars with trivia, quiz, and/or game nights in your area. Bars for dancing, karaoke, and to listen to live music will garner our final section.
