22 Beers on Tap | Mexican Pub Grub | Pool Table | Televised Soccer and Cycling | Dog-Friendly Patio
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.

*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.
The Three Faces of Blue Moon Tavern
When Blue Moon Tavern opened in 1934, it was still illegal to sell alcohol within a mile of the University of Washington campus due to local temperance laws. Luckily, Blue Moon set up shop at the 1 mile mark, and thirsty students were more than happy to make the trek. It also attracted its share of intellectual heavyweights, including poets Allen Ginsberg and Dylan Thomas. When he beatnik hangout started to decline in the 1970s, diehard fans rallied to save it, paving the way for it to receive official landmark status in 1990. The no-frills bar continues to draw students and suits alike with cash-only beer and peanuts—the shells of which blanket the floor.
The soundtrack at Blue Moon Tavern changes depending on the day. From Thursday through Monday, it’s live music, with a jazz jam kicking things off every Thursday afternoon. Wednesday brings open-mic night, and on select Mondays, bar-goers may be treated to Opera on Tap, where chamber-music singers belt out classical hits without breaking a single glass.
“Dive bar” is probably the best way to describe Blue Moon Tavern. The aging posters on the wall have been there for decades, and the initials of drunken vandals remain scratched into the wooden booths. Though this tavern isn’t a spot for fancy craft cocktails, its the perfect place for shooting the breeze with friendly a bartender, or taking part in a wacky tradition, such as the semi-blasphemous annual Christmas pageant.
The Three Faces of Shorty’s
Between wall-mounted likenesses of Triton and mermaids, the tiki-inspired sign that reads “Pinball Cove” announces the presence of Shorty’s arcade. Games of new and vintage stock line opposite walls of the neon-charged game room—AC/DC, Indiana Jones, and Addams Family pinball machines cough up bell dings and flashing lights, and they’re accompanied by digital games ranging from Galaga to Golden Tee Live. Patrons can even play while seated at the bar courtesy of online Big Buck Hunter.
For a dive bar with circus-themed, Coney Island–inspired decor, it makes sense that the menu offers a twist on circus and carnival fare. Chicago-style hot dogs come loaded with the requisite toppings, while other varieties promise chili and cheese, or sausage and sauerkraut. The menu also features veggie hot dogs and organic TV dinners for those so inclined.
You can post up for hours in a turquoise tufted-leather chair with a cheap pitcher of PBR or one of the craft beers on draft, or you can order something a little stronger. Shorty’s features a full-service bar, and bartenders are known to pour classic cocktails with a generous hand. Come on Fridays between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. to sample a craft cocktail for just $6.
