The Fiddler’s is one of the best pubs in Seattle! It is a tiny little place with a big personality.  Great location, an interesting selection of rotating taps, and excellent food!! After doing a little research I was surprised to find the Fiddlers was built in 1933, and was actually one of the first bars in Seattle to get a liquor license after Prohibition ended! How cool is that?

The bar itself feels like you are walking into someone’s house. After arriving you will quickly notice everyone seems to know one another. You might feel a little left out at first, but it’s so cozy you’ll quickly feel right at home. The Fiddler’s staff is pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, and there to get you what you want (sometimes with a smile). If you are looking for a cheery bartender to put on a show for you, you are in the wrong bar.

On busy nights (and during any Mariners, Seahawks, or Sounders game) the pub can get a little rowdy and extremely loud. I would suggest grabbing an early beer on a Sunday evening if you are looking for a fun date night! Also, I should note, during the summer you can sit outside under a canopy of hop vines. But be prepared to get there early or wait your turn… if memory serves, there are only 4 or 5 tables located on the patio!

The owners of this pub also run the Hopvine Pub (Capitol Hill) and the Latona Pub (Green Lake)… both establishments are equally funky and fun.
