Description: A beloved tourist trap near Pike Place Market.

History: A hundred years ago, the space occupied by Kells served as an embalming room and crematorium to an upstairs mortuary.

Today's lore: Kells is rumored to be haunted, with purported manifestations ranging from the spooky (bottles propelling themselves across the room, mirrors shattering, candles lighting themselves) to the terrifying (actual ghostly figures that appear and vanish).

Resulting precautions: According to the owner, the bar is stocked with holy water.

Fair warning: Kells teems with unsavory frat dorks on weekend nights. If you find yourself lusting for a paranormal adventure, you're better off staying home where you can play with a Ouija board in your underwear.

Happy hours: Sun–Thurs 4–7 pm (drinks), daily 4–7 pm (food).

Happy-hour drink specials: $3.50 wells, $3.50 house wine, $4.50 drafts (Guinness 250, Smithwick's).

Happy-hour food specials: $3 appetizers (sausage roll, chicken wings). recommended

Weeknights are great here, especially when Liam is playing guitar and singing. Frat boys are few and far between then.
