Though microbrewers celebrate limited flavor runs and regional ingredients, they still need much of the same equipment as the big brewers to concoct their craft beers. That's where The Cellar Homebrew comes in, outfitting winemakers, brewers, and cidersmiths with the equipment and ingredients needed to make their drinks. The store's owners??who boast more than 30 years of experience and a past line of fine wines??collect organic ingredients such as hops and yeast and sell them alongside fermentation equipment, keg systems, and cleaning supplies. They even offer one-hour on-location classes to instruct people in the basics of beer brewing. In addition to supplying items for alcoholic beverages, they also hawk basic supplies for cheese-, soda-, and vinegar-making, all of which go well over lettuce.

An eclectic and carefully balanced mix of Chinese restaurant, American diner, and late night hangout, Rickshaw Restaurant & Lounge has spent four decades at the top of the Seattle dining and nightlife scene. Not even a devastating fire could threaten its reign; after the blaze tore through the eatery in 2012, leaving more than 20 employees out of work, loyal regulars joined together to raise funds for the displaced—a testament to Rickshaw’s beloved place in the neighborhood. As one regular told The Seattle Times, “It’s a home away from home.”

Ever since Rickshaw literally rose from the ashes, owner Ginger Luke has reprised her role at the head of house and reinstated everything her loyal customers love—Chinese and Thai food for dinner (think mu shu pork, Mongolian beef, and sweet-and-sour chicken), pancakes and omelets for breakfast, pull tabs, karaoke and other late night entertainment until 2 a.m. every single night. And because the spot is open late seven days a week, Ginger has made sure to include plenty of daily specials into the lineup, including drink deals and some unusual events, such as tarot card readers and hand-writing analysts.

The origins of Tim's Tavern on 105th are shrouded in mystery. Built during prohibition, the building may or may not have been a speakeasy before transforming into a straightforward bar in 1935. Though it has changed hands and sizes since then, the spot has maintained its reputation as a fun local hangout with a wide selection of whiskeys and cocktails. It hosts different events every night of the week, from trivia to bingo to open mic comedy and live music. While guests enjoy whatever the night's entertainment may be, then can also dig into comfort food favorites such as daily pulled pork sandwiches, kielbasa brats on the weekends, smoked ribs on Thursdays, and tacos on Tuesdays. These pair well with the bar's stable of ten draft beers, which always includes a cider, Bud Light, Rainier, and seven craft brews. There is also one nitro tap hiding amongst the others, so that bartenders can pour out brews that are as smooth and carbonation-free as that 20-year-old bottle of Pepsi you're aging in the cellar for a special occasion.

In Focus: The Ould Triangle

  • The vibe: a welcoming Irish dive bar
  • The drinks: Guinness, Harp, and Blackthorn Cider number among the beverages on tap
  • What to order to soak up the booze: You can buy pub snacks like nuts or chips, but the bar welcomes delivery or take-out if you want something more substantial. Just ask a bartender for a list of menus.
  • The music: Amateurs or chart-toppers in disguise show off their pipes during open-mic and karaoke nights. Pro bands usually play on the weekends, ranging from Irish music to rock to country.
  • How to become smarter and potentially richer: attend the bar’s poker and trivia nights
  • Why The Stranger says you should visit: It's "a good place to grab a pint, shoot some pool, and make some new friends."
  • Learn some Gaelic: by reading the sign on the outside of the building. An Sean Triantan is the bar's name in that language.
