Probably the most unique establishment in which I have eaten and imbibed, being that it is in a restored and renovated defunct funeral home. Food was very good, staff was friendly, and the selection is very solid.

An old mortuary turned bar. That's something.

Place was pretty loud and crowded on a Wednesday evening. Still found bar seating. Server was a tad unfriendly but quick. Beer selection was immense and had a lot of local and PNW beers.

I enjoyed drinking there but also came on a night that weird, shitty music was playing.

Clever name. The bar used to be a funeral home, hence, "The Pine Box." Fairly large selection of craft beers on tap. I like the staff, but I am biased because my brother and my sister-in-law work there. The architecture is old, which I think adds cool points to the vibe.

Housed in a pretty rad former chapel/funeral building in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, this pub has a pretty solid selection of Pacific Northwest Beers. I was pretty impressed with the quality and expedient service. Great place to drink pints!

The coolest bar catered more towards craft beer that I have ever been to. The building is a old funeral home. They atmosphere is amazing.
