A dive like bar in an interesting location. Quite and intimate, not alot of seating and a very sparse staff. Go for the beer, and if you like Belgium styles you will not regret it. Very nice selection of European styles with some nice surprises like HOD on tap. I would recommend going after dark and a few drinks to finish an evening.

Went there late, on a Sunday in August. Dim lit and not crowded at all, which are both a plus for me as I went with a few friends to talk and have a few. Excellent tap selection of Belgian-styles.

More or less a dive bar with an excellent selection of reasonably priced Belgian brews on draft and in bottles. Definitely one of the best bars in Seattle to idle away a rainy afternoon with friends drinking top notch brews while playing board games.

I visited this place very quickly. They have a small beer selection, but the beers are solid, and crazy cheap. I had a glass of Russian River Supplication, and it was only $6.50. This place is very poorly lit, and very quiet. The bathroom is dingy, but the service was good enough. Wish I had more time in Seattle, because I would have liked to hit it up again and spend more time there.

I was pleasantly surprised by this place and I was already expecting something pretty decent. The ambiance is about what I imagined: dimly lit, hip beer drinkers, trendy music. Very comfortable inside. The selection was impressive. While not vast, itís not just run of the mill Belgian stuff. They had a few sours and a few rarer things along with the typical high quality Belgians one could expect from such a place. I was blown away by the prices. They only carry beers that most other places are charging $7-$9 for, but most everything was $6 or $7 for a proper pour. Iíve never seen Duchesse de Borgougne for $6 anywhere before, let alone in an expensive city like Seattle. This is a great place to come enjoy a beer.

Kind of out of the way, not a real attractive place. The selection is mostly Belgium style beers, so not a big variety, but they do have a consistent line up of great beers. Bottle list is nothing special. Honestly, some of the stuff Iíve found here is awesome. Great place.

Wow, I was expecting something else based on all the raves I have heard. This really is a dive bar that serves absolute top-notch beers. The bathroom is a nightmare, but, if you want the very best beer on tap, this is the place to go. Added plus: They clean the lines between EACH beer. Any time I am in town, I would definitely stop by for a beer.

One of my favorites in Seattle. A little bar in Capitol Hill, on Olive Way. Fantastic selection, particularly of Belgian beers. A must-visit location.

An easy 1 mile (uphill) walk from my hotel in downtown Seattle. A small corner dive bar with dark lighting, low (or no?) music,, with limited seating (maybe 6 seats at the bar, a few booths and tables. A very comfortable, worn feel (pretty much everything in the place was damaged or broken) but it felt welcoming. One bartender who was helpful and friendly. Excellent prices, starting at $4, with around 10 on tap and a nice bottle selection. I went twice to the Stumbling Monk because I enjoyed it so much.
