One of my favourite places to drink in Seattle, the Latona is a laid-back beer joint with a hand-picked selection of local micros, including some brewpub stuff you don’t usually see. Nobody bothers you - just a quiet place to have some great beer. I go back a lot.
Small, intimate just south of greenlake. Great local beer selection. Excelent food pairings. Live blues/jazz on the weekend. 7:00 on a friday, it was crowded, yet we walked right in and sat down for dinner. Highly reccomended
A great neighborhood pub, another one of Bob’s, a local brew-industry booster frequently offering beers brewed just for the pub. Loud on music nights, with an upstairs section I prefer to avoid. The kitchen is tiny-tiny, but they put out great food with their limited resources. Service gets dodgy at happy hour or on Brewers nights, but I expect this in any packed house. One of my favorite pubs.
a very likable neighborhood place of great long standing in the heart of seattle. for any local, places that have been there since the giddyup have a special in the heart. not many taps, but some are very lovingly chosen. nice setting, nice environs, good food and wine, full bar. not world class, really, but a very loyal friend to the beer geek.
Came during a very busy friday night when they had live music and the upstairs roped off. Enough to say; it was freakin busy. Nice tap selection and a very "neighborhood" feel to the joint. I wish I could have spent a bit more time enjoying this place.

A nice open, high-ceilinged neighborhood pub with a dozen or so local taps. The beer selection is reasonable but not nearly as good as the buzz would have it. Still, I sometimes find a new Washington micro that I’ve wanted to try. Nice comfortable atmosphere and a mellow neighborhood crowd; admittedly it was a bit noisy on a live jazz Friday night.
Very open place (windows on two sides) which hurts the ambiance a bit, but the vibe is good. Beer knowledge seems very good amongst the bar staff and selection is an eclectic cross section of PNW and Cali micros and not the usual dozen IPAs, a red and a stout. Didn’t try the food, but it looks great. Convenient to I5, but not my house, sadly.
Classic neighborhood pub with solid northwest-heavy tap list, much like the sister locations. Decent burgers.
A fine place really, but I basically never come here because it’s 21+, and even though it’s the kind of place I’d come to regularly if I lived in the neighborhood, I’m never going to hire a babysitter and then come here on a date night.
Rather small, high ceilinged with big, bright windows. Looks like it only sits about35-40 people at a small bar, a couple of booths and some small tables. Service was good and the selection was above average. I was surprised such a small place would have some many taps. I’ve heard food is really good, but didn’t try anything. It would be a great little neighborhood bar!
