Pike is located in the bustling, very touristy area at the heart of Seattle's downtown, right next to the public market and just across the street from the art gallery. Normally that's a bad sign, right? When things get too touristy the prices get too high and the quality starts to wane--why bother to make a good product when the customers almost literally fall into your bar?

Well, Pike's not exactly world class, but they do a damn good job of not slacking off. The vibe is polished--as interesting as it can be without being potentially offensive or offputting. There's lot of shiny acrylic black, clean brown bricks, and dark neon reds. Also lots of nice brewania pieces (probably the biggest collection I've seen outside of Potosi).

The place is big and busy but there are three (!) separate bars, to accommodate even the largest crowd. About a dozen house taps and then a halfdozen guest taps. All the house beers were reasonably priced but the guest beers were a little expensive. They had a really great take-home selection with bombers as well as growlers and you could have them ship anything you didn't feel like flying home with.

The food was standard Northwest pub fare--lots of fried stuff, lots of fish, and you could also get pizza. I really don't remember too much about it so it must have been pretty medium.

Really I don't got too much to say other than this place is better than you'd expect. It ain't worth traveling for, but it's a hell of a lot of fun and if you're in downtown Seattle you should probably stop by.

This place looked small upon arrival but stretched out inside to be an absolutely delightful atmosphere full of memorabilia and interesting knolls. Everything about the food, service, and beer were excellent. A place not to be missed when in Seattle.
