One reviewer said, ” This place is awesome. When we first walked in we were a little nervous, I don’t think we were expecting it to be this “divey.” Happy hour is awesome, we got a huge plate of chicken wings and nachos. Also between the two of us we had 7 beers, and it all came to 25 bucks.”

In Kent:

Gator’s Sports Bar & Grill
21609 84th Ave S
Kent, WA 98032

One reviewer said, ‘This is a great all around place to go to for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as sports bar & grills go. It’s a very clean place and the staff has always been friendly and fast, and the food is very good! There are tons of big screen TVs as well. The pool tables are clean and taken care of and the dart board machines are in good order…’

In Pioneer Square:

Sluggers Sports Bar
539 Occidental Ave S
Seattle, WA 98104
Neighborhood: Pioneer Square
(206) 654-8070

One reviewer said, ‘This is a great spot to hang out and watch a sporting event. There are more T.V.’s than one can count and the narrow corridor throughout makes for a cozy setting.’

In Downtown Seattle/Capitol Hill:

Auto Battery Bar
1009 E Union St
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 322-2886
http://www.autobatterybar.com

One reviewer said, ‘Housed in a former auto garage, the Auto Battery Bar features a supremely casual atmosphere and offers 10 televisions, eight beers on tap and plenty of great bar food, which includes a full menu of gourmet hot dogs. Auto Battery Bar’s slam dunk vibe and great specials make it a perfect for an after party celebration. Be sure to celebrate your team’s win with a cold beverage and a game of shuffleboard or match on the Wii.’

In Northgate:

Bleachers Pub
8118 Greenwood Ave N
(between 81st St & 82nd St)
Seattle, WA 98103
(206) 783-9919

http://www.bleacherspub.com

One reviewer said, ‘This place is not your typical seattle sports pub, but looks and feels more like a bar in the sports loving Midwest. The center wall features a giant screen TV, generally playing the home team, and the surrounding 2 walls are panelled with smaller, but still big, screens. If you get here a little early, they will most definitely put your game on.’
