Kind of polished look to the place. Local taps galore, some regional, some national, wide selection, focus on American-style micros. Food is soup, sandwiches and pasta, okay to fill you up, tasty for what it is. Nice enough spot, no complaints.

(Visited 09/2013): Naked City Taphouse is in a quaint neighborhood in the Greenwood area of north Seattle. It is located on Greenwood Avenue off N 85th, and street parking seems plentiful in the vicinity.

The interior features a long bar along the right side, with table seating opposite, plus a couple high tables near the front windows. The motif is wood and dark red, and there is a large mirror behind the bar behind the many taps. Artwork on the walls as well.

Naked Cityís tap totals over 20, with 10 of them being house beers. On my visit that included a few different IPAs, a Porter, Pro-Am Rauchbier, and a couple Pale Ales. All of the beers were above average, and they do flights. There are also guest handles from breweries like Ballast Point and Everybodyís Brewing.

Service on a slow weekend afternoon was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers and attentive throughout my visit.

Food at Naked City is pretty good. I enjoyed my sandwich.

All in all this is a brewpub outside of downtown Seattle that is worth visiting.

Now this was a place I came to expecting a fairly good beer bar and nothing more. I was entirely conquered by this fairly feep, yet rather narrow bar with bright, white walls and an industrial look. The house beers which occupy maybe half the taps were generally very solid and the guests seemed to be a selection of the top breweries of the area. I did not even consider browsing through the bottle list, I could have stayed and enjoyed half of their taps no problem if I did not have other ambitions that evening. There was not much of an ambiance when I visited as it was late and almost empty on a weekday, but I remained entirely captivated. Itís also within walking distance of other good spots and that makes it an easy must in Seattle, perhaps number 2 behind Brouwers and ahead of Uber Tavern to me.

Rather generic pub and restaurant in northern Seattle with a wonderful draft list; enough to keep you here all night and then some. Their website is updated regularly. There are as many low-gravity brews on as more potent options, which I love. The waitress didnít seem to like that we were ordering different beers all the time though, which was strange. The food was ordinary, but the beer menu kept us going for a long time. As it is out of the way, I would only come here if I planned to pass by the area and was looking for the best tap selection. Extra points for encouraging up-and-coming breweries too (Everybodyís, 7 Seas, Foggy Nogginí, etc.)

Visited early evening on Tuesday, Jan 13 2009 with bvc. This place has a very tasteful modern clean feel to it. Decent sized bar with a bunch of bar tables. Service at the bar was very attentive and friendly. I really like what they are doing with the tap list, focusing on local Washington State brewers. They also have a small brew kit in back and brew a couple of their own house beers. Hit had more Washington tap handles than any other place I have seen in Seattle. This alone makes it worth the visit if you are looking to try a bunch of WA beer. Food menu was really limited, and not terribly exciting. I didnít eat, so canít speak to quality at all. Coll concept, well executed. I wish every city had a place like this, couple of house beers, huge focus on locals, etc.

Cool joint with their own beers which were ok to good and a bunch of guest taps. Atmosphere was pretty cool. Definitely worth a stop if youíre anywhere near by.

2010-07. Dark with the lights turned down low, very warm temperature inside. Friendly staff is nice but hard to flag down at times. Food was good. Pulled pork lacking in sauce but was literally melt in your mouth tender, bun included. Turkey bacon sandwich was also quite good. House beers that were on when we were there were kind of terrible, whether it be from quality or condition. With a tap and bottle list as good as they had Iím sort of disappointed that we wasted our time with the house offerings. It was nice enough and I would likely visit if I lived in the neighbourhood but for a visitor I would recommend hitting other places in Seattle before this one.

They are really working hard to bring their prices in line since they opened, and that is just awesome. They have tons of great taps for sure--lots of Washington State stuff. The food is just ok, but the service is really good, and the owners want to succeed with the beer geeks. They will hang out with you and shoot the breeze. The Washington state selection is not to be trifled with--this place lives and dies by it, but it is a pretty amazing local selection.
