Über is a fun bar to hit up with a few friends. The bar itself is quite small but has a great rotating lineup that's updated daily on the site. The bottle selection is minimal but quality. The service here is great (and better be since its so small). I love this place for good and quiet conversation instead of the overly loud convos you have to have at Brouwers. The small events they have here are always a blast. They get exciting kegs to tap (PtY blew in 20 minutes but was delicious!). Theyve had some anniversary beers brewed for them that are fantastic (Uberwine and Cab Ride). A fun enjoyable place, I recommend it if visiting here.

Went here on the last night of a Seattle trip. Cool place that even though is small would not deter me from coming again. We went on a Sun night so there were very few people. Got a seat at the bar and looked over the notebook full of selections. Had one tap beer and one bottled beer. Since it was so slow I talked to the bartender and she was very nice and seemed to know quite a bit about not only the beer she was serving but also about the craft beer scene in general. All the other people in the bar where quiet and respectfull, definately not the type of bar you would find the college crowd in.
Overall a good place to get a good beer.

The beer is great, but oddly the the indoor fire pit is what I will always remember. Fantastic bottle selection. A little bit bright with all the the screens/monitors listing the beers and also how much were left in the keg. The beer selection was great. Boneyard Hop Venom was my main dish and Rodenbach grand cru was my dessert. The staff was very beer savvy, nice, not too friendly but also not too unfriendly? LOL I'll be back.

This place has inspired me to write my first review on BA- and I'm a guy who's gotten a free beer at Toronado before.

It's always hard to find that right combination of selection and ambiance in a city you're not familiar with, but this place had a fantastic selection and an awesome, laid-back attitude to it. I found Brouwer's to be a bit stuffy and Stumbling Monk to be a bit boring to be so divey, but Uber walked that line beautifully.

Our bartender was happy to make recommendations and was very friendly to us goofy tourists (though a bit on the slow side) and knew her stuff. Plus, she gave us some recs for other places to check out (which we promptly did).

The place itself is fairly small, but not crowded the Sunday night when we went. And if you're from SF, it won't feel small anyway. The stuff on the walls vary between cool and hilarious, and create a perfect vibe for drinking awesome beer with a couple of good friends.

I've sought out beer bars in the Bay Area, LA, NYC, Boston, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Seattle, and Uber is easily within my top... three? four? All-around awesome place, that I will never miss when I go back to Seattle.

We stopped in on a Friday around 10:00. SMALL AND PACKED. I did not think I would be surpised on the size but I was. It's small, but that is what makes this bar so special. Great little L shaped bar, glass filled fire pit in the middle, one bathroom. and some KICK A** BEER.

Uber Tavern is a great beer bar. It is quite small and cozy, with a pleasantly chill atmosphere, even in the earlier parts of a Friday evening. There is no table service, but service is good. The bartender was plenty willing to answer questions, and beers are served at proper temp and in appropriate glassware. Selection is sold if not huge, about 25 taps or so, but very well selected. The bottle list is extensive and selected with the same care as the taps. Prices are very reasonable. I had a bomber, or was it a 750, of Abacus for $19, and a healthy pour of Life and Limb for a fair price. Can't be too much less than that in a bottle shop. They had clean 09 Abyss on tap, as well as lots of other impressive offerings. If you like great beer bars, it would be silly not to visit this one, given the chance.

Hands down, my favorite bar that I found on my recent trip to Seattle. I prefer my bars smaller in size, dark, with that "worn-in" look. This place has great character, a 10-15 seat bar, with a few tables and chairs. A large glass cooler is behind the bar, set up nicely to emphasize their great bottle list. Draft list was pretty great, had some brews that I had never even heard of (I'm from the east coast).

We arrived at this place a few minutes after it opened, so we had the place to ourselves. I could imagine it would get pretty crowded in the evenings, but again, that just adds to the character of the place.

It is worth stopping the Uber Tavern just for the beer selection. They have an incredible bottle list and more than 20 awesome beers on tap. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They even held on to my wife's purse for 12 hours after she left it behind. On the down side, the bar is small, crowded and loud if it is full. I think going there for an afternoon tasting would be ideal because the noisy crowd is too distracting for me to contemplate flavor, etc. There are no real options for food short of ordering delivery, so trying to pair something from their excellent beer menu is impossible.

Uber is a great little place with great atmosphere. The staff is friendly and they have great selection of bottles and taps. I love the table with the fire in the middle which is a nice bonus on cold winter night. They also carry a few meads on tap which was interesting having never had mead before. The website is pretty informative as well as it is updated frequently with what they are serving and what they have coming up next on draught. Prices are in line with what you would expect to pay. Wish I had a bar similar to this place in my neighborhood.

Great place that is new to me. I am pretty sure this place wasn't around 10 years ago when I lived here.

Great atmosphere, dark and small, but the fridges behind the bar are well lit, and stocked nicely. There are a handful of chairs, a couch, and a very cool round table that has a fire pit in the middle.

Quality is very good, saw lots of great locals on tap, Russian River, and tons of high quality bottles.

Service was fine, no complaints.

Selection was great. Liked I said, they had tons of excellent bottles, and it looked like at least 2 dozen taps.

Don't think they have food.

Value is good, prices were fair for Seattle.

All in all, a great place, really enjoyed it, and might have to go here again before I leave.
