4 Best Bars in Queen Anne, Seattle

Bar Miriam

On the quiet side of the hill, this cute European-style café-bar feels like it's been around forever despite opening in 2022. The craft cocktails feel like classics but include a number of creative originals, and the menu offers plenty of low- and no-alcohol options. The terrific food menu reads like a high-end restaurant menu, but the upscale, gastropub-style snacks come out bistro casual.

Queen Anne Beer Hall

In a city known for icing out strangers, this classic European beer hall tries to get them to cozy back up with its communal tables, frosty mugs of beer from 30 taps, and a menu of hearty drinking foods, like pretzels, poutine, and burgers. Everybody's invited to the party here, including kids up until 10 pm.

Targy's Tavern

Iconic and historic, Targy's Tavern hangs onto one of the last vestiges of true dive bar in central Seattle in a 1902 building originally designed as trolley worker housing. The U-shaped bar has been serving up strong drinks, cold pints, and pulltabs, with just a smattering of surliness, since 1937. Though it gets packed on weekends with a newer crowd, the real fun comes on slower nights when the regulars and bartenders get to chit-chatting.

The Sitting Room

With its European-café vibe and excellent mixed drinks, the Sitting Room lures residents of both the lower and upper parts of Queen Anne. It's quite an accomplishment to get those two very different demographics to agree on anything, but this sweet, relaxed little spot has done it with its eclectic furniture, zinc bar, sexy lighting, and friendly staff.
