The Happiest Hour
Shadowland in West Seattle
Description: While Shadowland is located in West Seattle, the bar's oddly sparse decor and rows of identical furniture units simulate a Belltown-lounge atmosphere.
Why Elvis would have eaten here: The happy-hour food menu features, among other things, his $6 namesake—the Elvis sandwich, consisting of peanut butter, banana, and bacon on toasted rye.
Why Elvis would not have drunk here: Continually grieving the loss of his mother, Elvis hated beer (Gladys died of cirrhosis); according to David Adler's The Life and Cuisine of Elvis, even the sight of a beer can or bottle made him uncomfortable.
Happy hours: Daily 4–6 pm and 10 pm–midnight.
Happy-hour drink specials: $2 rotating tap (Guinness, Stella, more), $1 off bottles (including Leffe and Zatec), $6 select glasses of wine, and $4 rotating mixed drinks (Captain Cokes or Tanqueray and tonics).
