The food is nothing to write home about, but it's worth shoving your way through the Pike Place Market tourists gawping at fish to get to the old-school, unfancy bar at the Athenian. There is a stunning view of Puget Sound, and furthermore, the beer here is the coldest beer in the world. You must get draft beer; they superchill glass mugs and fill them with beer so near freezing that, amazingly, tiny beerbergs form on the surface of your beverage. A sunset here with a cold, cold beer is one of the world's truest delights.
