Best happy hour spots- downtown
I did a search for happy hour suggestions and didn't find many recent postings. Who has the best happy hour menus, for food and great drinks?

Downtown Seattle that is!

You won't find any in NC, it is not legal.

McCormick and Schmick on 1st Avenue is famous for it's happy hour and so is Morton's Steakhouse, on 6th Avenue. Some evenings Morton's features a multi-course dinner for under $50 (it may be an "early bird" deal). Brasa, an upscale place on 3rd Avenue, has an excellent bar menu.

Maximilien Bistro (great view!)
Elliot's (for oysters)
The Metropolitan Grill

I haven't been to Sazerac or the W but their happy hours sound good.

I love Cascadia in Beltown for Happy Hour- they have excellent mini burgers that are to die for!

Brasa is the best deal in town with there 1/2 price menu of food- no drink specials though

ZigZag makes the best cocktails and has some food specials during happy hour

I also love the Met for their little roast beef sandwiches and martini's

Not sure how up to date this stays but this site has some info too:

I agree with Cascadia, The Metropolitan Grill and McCormack's.

Agree with McCormick & Schmicks and also really like Dragonfish by the Paramount for happy hour.

It's not a happy hour but their regular 'small plate' menu, but Black Bottle on 1st is a great new addition to the Belltown scene.

& for just plain cheap we go to Jai Thai.

Zig Zag does have the best cocktails.

I still remember spending a 'happy hour' in the bar of the Metropolitan Grill during the tech stock market heydays. It was packed and fun. However, I love going in there anytime just to see the beautiful woodwork, etc.
