My favorite bar

I turned 21 almost exactly a year ago.
I’ve never been a big drinker, but I felt the need to go see what Seattle had to offer.
Somehow, I lucked out.
I met a guy at FAO Schwartz (closed now) who told me that the best pint of Guinness (my favorite beer) could be found at Kell’s, an out-of-the-way little Irish pub on Post Aly.
Now listen, I’ve toured the Guinness factory. I know a good Guinness when I meet one.
So I went. Who can argue with FAO Schwartz?
Kell’s turned out to be the best bar I’ve found. Well, in the United States.
Their Guinness is, honestly, the best in town. The bartenders smile and make conversation, and they remember me. The bouncers are friendly. There’s live Irish music every night, and I even got to hear a man play the bagpipes on Saturday. The bar is often busy, but I’ve never had to push up to the bar. Smoking is allowed inside, and although I don’t smoke, I never feel like the smoke is overpowering.
I hear they serve food in the daytime, but I’ve never had it.
If you’re ever near the Pike Place Market, just poke your head in – maybe you’ll see what I love so much about it. It’s on Post Aly, between Stewart and Virginia. I think.
