Dive into this Dive! 8/21/2005

Owl'n Thistle is located in Post Alley in Pioneer Square. It's hidden away and located right across from a pay-parking lot behind the Viaduct. Next to a bike shop, I believe. It's hard to find if you don't know where you're going. This place is the epitome of the word "dive". Everything smells like an ashtray. They even have Real Life Barfly's sitting at the bar. It's a great experience for the kids if you want to expose them to something beyond the sheltered life of the suburbs. This is a eating joint for the working folks downtown. You're just as likely to see a biker in full leathers as you are an attorney in a 3-peice suit. The food is full-on grease. It doesn't matter what you order, they're going to deep fry it, or at least pour some grease on for the same effect. I love their Reuben sandwich & fries. Oh such greasy goodness. Chicken fingers are what you'd find anywhere, and the burgers are pretty good too. This is NOT a non-smoking establishment. Maybe there are parts that are non-smoking, but you're going to smell smoke. It's dark and dusty and smoky and easy to forget that it's 1pm outside instead of 1 AM. Not a bit of sunlight peirces the thick walls of Owl'n Thistle. Prices are okay, but I've only ever gone there when someone else pays my way :-) more

Irish Flub 7/14/2005

I had high hopes going here to a "irish pub" of sorts but let me tell you.. this aint one.. If you are looking for something of that nature Id try Kells or Fado. This place is a total gimmick that place that doesnt look or feel (or taste) like an Irish pub. This place feels like a sports bar or something. Totally cheap and cheesy. As for the food.. Cheap and cheesy as well. I for the life of me cannot figure out why this place is always so busy. Possibly location? more

  • The Scene
    This venerable Irish bar is a longtime favorite for live music in an intimate space. Though many musical styles are heard--from Bebop and Destruction to Ponticello--the emphasis is on upbeat folk like Pete Krebs. The main room has a floor-level stage so close to the bar that dancing practically transforms you into a member of the band, but make no mistake: The space for music is one of three large seating areas.

    The Draw
    A well-rendered Guinness is the rule here. But if you're thirsty for spirits, they have a great selection of whiskey and other liquors. Cheap pub grub is offered, with some sizable appetizers available for as low as $4. If you aren't in the mood for music head to the back, where pool and darts complete the package.
