Seattle Weekly's Description

Easy to miss if you don't recognize the silver stars painted atop its stretch of NE 45th St. in Wallingford, Al's Tavern is a true old-school dive with character that the Puget Sound mural on its walls echoes. The cash-only watering hole has been open for seven decades, and its prices for food, microbrew pints, or generous pours don't seem to have risen much since its inception. For entertainment, regulars haunt the pool tables and the vinyl-stuffed jukebox.

    Regarding the hipster vs. not debate. There's a small group of regulars here most days. Then, magically, around 9:30, an ultra hipster crowd always arrives. Very nice during day, blah at night.

    Fantastic hipsterfull bar. Bring cash.

  • brian w. on 09/16/11

    Fantastic hipsterless bar. Remember to bring cash no cc or debit.

  • Eric H. on 03/12/10

    Al's = Good Times. Not a tip, a fact.

    Laid back spot for pinball. Lord of the Rings is the best!
