Seattle Weekly's Description

Decked out in Polynesian kitsch, this Belltown dive lives up to its tropical name. Shelves and rafters are stuffed with tiki men and painted surfboards, and a daily 3-7 happy hour (all day Sunday) draws a downtown clientele-everyone from tattooed bikers to hard-working condo- dwellers -that's as colorful as the decor. Word to the wise: this place exudes attitude, and the bartenders can be quite sassy. Wear a thick skin and be sure to order under the "Order Here" sign and you'll blend right in.

    You know you're in the old Belltown when a guy skateboards in and no one even blinks. A couple in the back plays shuffleboard as their dog lies around. Happy hour 3-7

    There's been an accident, nuclear lava has puked all over a nearby Chili's turning it into a shambling "Zombie Chili's." The music is always good, the vibe is relaxed and accepting of all types. patio

    Great shuffleboard play. A little different with having to bank the bumpers but fun no less.

    No hot food here, so bring your dogs and your own food. I usually cook myself up some grub and home and eat it over there.
