Athenian Inn (Downtown)
1517 Pike Pl
Seattle, Washington 98101
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.
Hours: Mon-Sat 6:30 am-6:30 pm (bar until 8 pm); Sun 9 am-3:30 pm
