Feels like you are in the hull of a ship. It is pretty dark inside. The drinks are decent prices and they have darts, video games and a chode shuffleboard table. I went on a Wednesday night and it had an alright amount of people. No one was really social but hey tiss their own. I will give it another try one of these weekends. Oh and it sells pitchers. <p>Pretty average joint. Feels like you are in the hull of a ship. It is pretty dark inside.

It's got nice bumpers. Beer is decent. The divey vibe is substantiated through the perfect level of stickiness on all surfaces, the low-red-tinted lighting, and a cross-section of types: drunk mid-thirties, young 20 ladies slightly disappointed in the turnout, mid to late 20 men hoping the ladies look their way, and then those of us who stumbled in, along with the occasional, broke graduate student just looking for a good time. But I digress. But what really makes this place is the table art/writing/scratches. All sorts of phalic renderings, coupled with proclamations of love. We sat for an hour, entertained by the comments. <p>Shuffleboard on point (wish there were more tables). It&rsquo;s got nice bumpers. Beer is decent.

It is definitely an interesting spot! The under the sea mural on the wall was pretty cool. Lots of big wooden booths lined against the wall. We got there kind of early, so we snagged one. There is some outdoor seating in front. Bartender was really friendly and helpful with good beer suggestions. Drinks were reasonably priced too! I liked this dive-y little spot. I'd definitely go back. <p>I was in Seattle for work and stopped here for a couple of beers. It is definitely an interesting spot! The under the sea mural on the wall was pretty cool.

I knew nothing about the place going in but it was fun and cooler than I would have guessed from the name. It was a hip Seattle dive bar in vibrant Belltown, with a casual, comfortable atmosphere. We got a big table, which is always nice when out drinking. I showed up a little drunk without having eaten, so I abstained on this leg of the night. It seemed like a good place to get a beer though. Instead I just hung out and had my ass handed to me at Street Fighter 2. I spent a whole round trying to remember how to do Chun Li's fast kick thing before giving up and mashing buttons until I died. As Seattle bar decoration/entertainment, by the way, an old-school arcade game must be pretty ultimate. I'd recommend Lava Lounge for a night out in Belltown. It's fun and easy, and you can play video games like it's 1993. <p>I ended up at Lava Lounge one Thursday night in Seattle.

We walked in on Monday, January 18th. Sat at the bar for a round of drinks. They have a decent selection of whiskeys and scotches from what I remember. I believe I got a Glenfiddich here? The bartenders are nice and I liked the atmosphere. Dark and kinda divey which was perfect as my friend and I used to go to dive bars all the time. I believe they also have games in the back: shuffleboard, darts, pac man, etc, but we never had the chance to play anything. Good stop if you're in Belltown. Especially if you're craving tiki drinks. <p>Stop #3 on a reunion crawl with an old friend. We walked in on Monday, January 18th. Sat at the bar for a round of drinks.

Drinks were nice and strong, the bartender was really nice, and the wooden tables were cool. Stopped here during an extended layover and it was a good place to kick back for a bit before heading back to the airport. The bathroom left a little to be desired - had to use the flashlight on my phone to see where everything was in the stall because the lighting was so dim. Otherwise it was a pretty mellow, kick back kind of place. <p>Chill bar a short walk away from the bustle of the market.

Great bartenders who remember you, good selection of beers (Hoegaarden on tap!) and reasonably priced drinks still, especially for belltown. Plus outdoor seating on scenic second avenue. The interior is pub-stlye, but has lots of tiki, islander, and other just random decor everywhere. look around for the stuffed cat. I've probably spent like five months of my life solid in this bar, and I still find new stuff on the walls.  They've got pac-man, a couple of pinball machines, video crack, shuffleboard, . DJs many nights of the week.  A nice, solid place that isn't afraid to get the floor dirty.
