The Five Point is inarguably one of Seattle's—indeed, the world's—best dive bars. The view from the urinal in the men's room is famous: a window into a janky kind of periscope, providing a startlingly close-up look at the top of the Space Needle. It serves as a brief reminder that the outdoors exists, which is easy to forget here. Foodwise, the floppy, salty fries have never seen the inside of a freezer, and if you like an old-school open-faced turkey sandwich with gravy and mashed potatoes, you've come to the right place. It's diner food done right, open 24 hours: a civic treasure.
