In college, we began cataloging our favorite happy hours around Seattle. Instead of hanging out at the $1 beer places– we spent time at some of Seattle’s better restaurant happy hours. The list grew, and grew and began to find its way e-mailed throughout Seattle. Now on the web, the “unofficial” guide to Seattle happy hours includes well over 150 different restaurants with full details on foods, prices, times, location, and telephone. We hope this guide is as much fun to use as it was to create! The list has been extensively updated to include the most up to date Seattle happy hour information. Consider using a Seattle limousine to make your night-out safe, comfortable, and fun…
This is the happy hour guide featured in the Seattle Times newspaper and website as their most e-mailed and most read article. Each month, we’ll feature our personal choice of SeattleTravel’s Happy Hour of the Month
Happy Hour of the Month:
Seattle’s First Avenue is rapidly gaining traction as the “Triangle” of top Seattle happy hours. With the combination of Boka, the Library Bar, and Taste – you’ve got three of the most recommended happy hours in the city. We hit up Boka and it scored solid points for our Happy Hour of the Month.
Boka is a swank, cosmopolitan, elegant bar in Seattle’s Hotel 1000. It attracts a well-dressed clientele and many local business workers. The muted colors and dark atmosphere reveal sets of low tables set off into private areas. Boka offers excellent, high-end food at a discount (selected items) during happy hours. We tried out the beef satay and three shredded chicken barbecue slider sandwiches. Gourmet Mac’n Cheese and Grilled Cheese are also very popular choices. Menu items and pricing can vary with the seasons.
Boka’s food was excellent – super tasty, fresh. The beef was very tender, and the chicken seasonings were delicious. The chicken seasoning was delicious and included three candied apricots. The beef included thai cole slaw. Service at Boka was consistently excellent – with plenty of wait staff; food promptly served up hot; and the atmosphere was relaxing. The long bar is great for conversation and the private table booths quite private. There were a mix of patrons from swank groups of ladies; to concert-goers at the nearby Showbox; to lawyers debating today’s business news; and even a scruffy guy who looked like Geico’s caveman mascots. SeattleTravel’s team loved Boka’s happy hour – we’d highly recommend it as our downtown happy hour of the month. Boka is located at Seattle’s 1010 First Avenue.
