Named for the six-armed Indian dancer on its logo, this spacious and popular brewpub has 17 house and craft beers on tap. Two that stand out are the medium-bodied Hammerhead and the Terminator Stout. As you head back to the restrooms, note the fermenting tanks painted with amusing murals.

My spouse and I visited Six Arms Pub on a Tuesday afternoon in early August 2014. We did not have a reservation. However, because it was the middle of the afternoon (after lunch but before happy hour and dinner), we were seated quickly. Six Arms is open daily for lunch and dinner. Six Arms enjoys a corner location in a wedge-shaped building in the First Hill / Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Parking is available on the street, or in a nearby
parking lot or garage (such as the garage at the Convention Center or the garage at the Homewood Suites). We stayed nearby at the Homewood Suites, so it was a quick 5-minute walk (although slightly uphill) to Six Arms. The interior of the bar features a casual dining atmosphere, with seating on the street level in booths, tables, and at the bar. The interior features lots of windows and a second-floor mezzanine. Outdoor seating is available in two fenced-in enclosures on sidewalk. The restaurants permits leashed pets to accompany al fresco diners. Six Arms, owned by the McMenamins group, operates restaurants in three different Seattle locations: Capitol Hill, Mill Creek, and Queen Anne. The Capitol Hill location contains space for the restaurant to brew their own beer. In fact, the name of the restaurant derives from one of their bottle labels that features a Hindu idol with six arms. Six Arms serves Northwest pub fare that uses seasonal local ingredients. All food is made on the premises, including pizza, soups, salads, sandwiches, fries, burgers. We ordered drinks and dessert (a delicious salted caramel hazelnut tart served with vanilla ice cream) at Six Arms, and the service was friendly and efficient. We would not hesitate to return sometime for a more extensive meal in the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
