On Capital Hill just a mile or so up Pike street from downtown .
From the street this place looks innocuous, it blends in nicely with the urban neighborhood. The inside is a large open area with windows along two walls. The restaurant and large bar seating areas are not separated. The atmosphere here is pretty much your typical upscale restaurant - bar ; slick wood trimming and clean.
Service speed is average to slow with most of the wait staff not very beer savvy. The food is good though appropriately pricy.
Of course the main reason you're here is for the beer. Most of Elysian's brews are on tap or bottled as are a big selection of bottled Belgians. Booze and wine are also available. The brewery's bottled beers can be purchased to go but no growler sales for some reason... probably looks tacky. I've found the best time to visit is after 9 pm when the business suit crowd has left and the locals creep in, it's a much more relaxed atmosphere.
Definitely one of better beer bars in town.

I had never been to Elysian on Capitol Hill before, so I hoofed it up the hill after work yesterday and checked it out. I really like the atmosphere; it feels like an old pub in there, with various flags hanging from the ceiling and lots of old, beat-up wood. It feels sort of industrial inside, in a wood-hewn kind of way; it even smells woody inside. I've been to Elysian Fields down by the stadium several times, but I must say I prefer the hominess of this location more.

They had 17 beers on tap, quite a good collection. I had the I-5 Amarillo, their collaboration with Central City up in BC, and quite liked it. The service was prompt and friendly; you can't ask too much more of a pub. I feel like this is definitely a place I could patronize regularly.
