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.
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.
Definitely a cool, hanging out sort of bar. The laid back attitude reminds me of UK pubs. Lots of taps with a good selection of micros. Worth spending a day at.

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.
