Summit Public House: A User’s Guide
- To drink: a draft beer from a local brewery, such as Elysian, Port Townsend, or Maritime
- To eat: flour-tortilla burrito with pinto beans, rice, avocado, pico de gallo, and a choice of meat or veggies
While You Wait: Grab a stick and an opponent for a free game of pool.
Where to Sit: If the weather’s nice, head to the cozy outdoor patio. Even if its a bit nippy out, the elevated fire pit will keep you somewhat toasty. The patio is a great spot to bring your pooch, too. Though Summit welcomes dogs of all ages, they still require them to show valid ID before ordering a beer.
What’s on the Tube? Though most sports bars hew to baseball, football, and basketball, Summit’s TVs tend to be tuned to soccer and cycling. A typical crowd at Summit is pretty diverse, but big soccer and cycling events draw diehards in droves.
While You’re In the Neighborhood
Before: Work up an appetite by perusing the eclectic collection of unique Japanese-themed gifts, clothing, and local artwork at Kobo (814 E. Roy Street) After: Time travel to a simpler time by catching a classic, indie, or foreign flick at Harvard Exit Theatre (807 E. Roy at Harvard), an old-fashioned movie house built in 1925.
*If You Can’t Make It, Try This: The Redwood (514 East Howell Street), a delightfully divey bar known for its cocktails, local on-tap brews, Southern-style comfort food, and extensive vegan options.
