Best Place to Hide With a Big Beer

Post

At this still-new bar on Post Alley, you can sit outside in the sun and observe Puget Sound, but it somehow feels more appropriate to find a stool inside the long, dark breadbox of a bar at Post. The decor is minimal, gray is the predominant color, and the low, exposed ceiling gives the space a sense of sleekness and coziness both. The bartender/owners, Ruadhri (Rory) McCormick and Hannes Schindler, both formerly of Kells, the Irish bar next door, will fuss over you, and to know what's on tap, you'll have to ask—Guinness is the only tap with a branded handle. In the center of the tourist mecca that is Pike Place Market, this touch of intimacy feels decidedly small-town. House-made, thick-cut potato chips (which accompany the battered fish or grilled cheese) are one of the tastiest items on the menu.—Adriana Grant
