Pioneer Square Bars & Nightlife
240 2nd Ave. S, Pioneer Square
Business partners and husband-wife pair Josh and Nancy Kelly had been dreaming of their own restaurant for years when they fell in love with Good Bar's historic space in Pioneer Square. Unfortunately, preserving the same vintage details they fell in love with severely limited the space Josh (a long-time chef) would have to cook in. To adapt, he flipped the concept from a restaurant with a bar to a bar with food. The cocktail and beer program here is one of the city's best, but Josh's culinary pedigree means that even the limited bar food menu is pretty show-stopping. This place is best enjoyed during happy hour, when you can order a pile of charcuterie, or the surprisingly good sloppy joe, to snack on with an after-work cocktail.
