Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: My FAVORITE Nautical-Named Bars

November 30, 2016

Western Washington is home to some of the most beautiful views of the Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean, so it's no wonder many bars, pubs and taverns have nautical-themed names to reflect our maritime obsession! You'll definitely want to check out these sea-loving hot-spots. 


1. Anchor Pub, Everett: One of my regular bars when I lived in north Everett, Anchor Pub has the "Train Beer" thing going on, where you yell "Train Beer!" when a train goes by and snag a beer for a dollar! Tuesdays offer $2.50 wells and Bud Light, and weekends always offer GREAT live and local music!

2. The Waterfront Seafood & Bar, Bellingham: When you're craving great clam chowder and a beer, look no further than this gem! For the super-hungry and the seafood-obsessed, you MUST grab the Captain's Plate!

3. No Anchor, Belltown: One of Seattle's newest beer bars, No Anchor offers a cool, relaxed environment, perfect for gathering and perusing the WACKY cabinets on the walls, filled with all things strange and even stranger.

4. Anchor Inn Tavern, Anacortes: If you're looking for casual and cozy, this is the PERFECT neighborhood bar in Anacortes. Pool tables, a jukebox, and a covered outdoor area make Anchor Inn feel like your very own Cheers. 

5. Rock The Dock Pub & Grill, Tacoma: Not many places are totally boat friendly with power and water on the dock! Not only that, but Rock The Dock also brings in live music over the weekend to enjoy while you're sampling fresh, homemade recipes and signature cocktails!

6. Pirate's Cove Bar & Grill, Ocean Shores: Fish and Chips are a MUST when you're in the Pirate's Cove! You'll find this cozy spot in Ocean Shore's hotel row. I'll be visiting at the end of December and can't wait to come in for a cold one! 

Drop your anchor at one of these awesome nautical spots, but if I missed one, please let me know so I can check it out myself! 


Happy Adventuring,
