The Lookout (Capitol Hill)

757 Bellevue Ave E
Seattle, Wa 98102
(206) 329-0454

Along with an outdoor patio with a view of South Lake Union, Queen Anne, and Puget Sound, this bar and restaurant offers burgers, sandwiches, eight beers on tap, and one of those jukeboxes that conjures any pop song known to humankind out of the ether at the touch of a finger. Drinks do not ascend to the level of craft cocktails, but neither do their prices: a pint-sized jalapeƱo margarita, made with muddled lime and orange and a handful of sliced peppers, is $7, a gin and juice, $6. Opening weekend featured a Malibu rum promotion with the Malibu rum girls.

Ok for drinks

Skip the food - it's overpriced & mediocre. The atmosphere is pleasant and the pin ball machine great for friends and dates.

Nice alternative to the normal Capitol Hill bar. Smooth, dark atmosphere with a great patio. They now offer vegetarian/vegan options which is great for me. The lack of vege food is what kept me from coming back before. I always enjoy the music they play. I have a feeling this is going to be the place to be when summer comes around...

If you just wanna go for a drink and hang out with your friends as they are "working" it's the perfect Seattle Slacker spot! The bartender was super slow on getting our drinks out, because we noticed he was making drinks for "friends" in between making our drinks. We unfortunately decided to eat too, skip the food and just drink! The $11 hamburger was an awful frozen "B" grade hamburger patty, the kind that you would buy from a street vendor or Seattle Center for $5. The lookout - great potential but needs to be tweaked, majorly!
