Seattle Weekly's Description

One of the last bastions of old Ballard, the Ballard Smoke Shop's nautical theme, smoke-stained walls and crusty old salts that dominate its barstools--the rest are generally occupied by hipsters looking for an escape from the yuppiedom that now dominates Ballard Avenue--set it apart from the other, more upscale joints nearby. Drinks, followed by a great hangover breakfast. It was once the kind of place people got thrown into. Now you can take the kids to experience the thrill of greasy food at cheap prices, and a rousing bar packed with Ballard Ole's.
