Best Neighborhood Bar (Suburban)

Wilde Rover

Located in downtown Kirkland, the Wilde Rover is a popular Irish pub that appeals to as many college kids as it does retired folks. The gorgeous space boasts sprawling wooden floors, an outdoor deck overlooking the water, and a stage for the many bands that provide live music. Loyal patrons know all too well that Wilde Rover offers both an early- and late-evening happy hour daily, serving cheap pints and grub like curried chips and Jameson whiskey wings. But for absolute proof of the pub’s beloved status in the neighborhood, look no further than trivia night, a regular Wednesday occurrence that draws almost as much of a crowd as St. Patrick’s Day does.
