(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 City’s 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 Everybody’s 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.
Really packed when I visited. People must like their beer here. Tons of taps, many of which are local and or rare.

Nice new addition to the Seattle scene. Awesome focus on the PacNW region, food aims toward organic and local. Gotta love the fire sale they were having when I got in there -- lots of good bottles at wholesale cost for take away only. Downsides: (a) The acoustics are pretty awful in what is otherwise quite a nice space. (b) The wife claims that the food sucks. It’s not exceptional, but "sucks" is too strong.
Sour tasting 8/05/09 was awesome. $25 bought 14 sours, very few of them boring, including Consecration bottle and draft, St. Lamvinus draft, and Cascade The Vine. Service at this event was A+.
A cool place visited during Seattle beer week. I had some Chuckanut stuff and a few others. A busy restaurant feel. Ate some pickled hops- that was interesting. Very busy that night, I’m not sure what it’s usually like. A nice place.
Popped in here for a few pints on a Thursday evening. Very relaxed and laid back atmosphere, friendly servers, and an impressive tap list - totally different than the nearby Brouwers at this particular time. Very reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.
24 beers on tap and i had only tried 1 of them prior to coming here. mostly stuff local to seattle. so great if you are from out of town. every beer was basically $5. cartoon artwork on the walls. nice place.
Packed in place. Great service. Excellent fries. Wonderful beer list with about 10 of their own--a wide variety from sours to session to barelywine-- and 10 guests. mostly regional. The screening room, their other half, was closed--the place has a thematic interest in older movies.
Great neighborhood brew pub with nice (if pretty standard) pub food. A great backroom for watching the big Seahawks games. Large and constantly changing house beer selection with some interesting guest handles as well. Beers are very hit or miss in my book but it is worth visiting.
