Bruce Lloyd

His customers come for the solid pours and friendly abuse, but Eastlake Bar & Grill bartender Bruce Lloyd comes to work each night to complain about his beloved/behated Denver Broncos, his hometown team. He's smiling more these days with Peyton Manning on the roster, but "I'm prepared to be disappointed, as usual," says Lloyd, who draws a legion of followers from the dozen-plus Seattle bars he's worked at over three decades. He now tends the upstairs and downstairs bars at Eastlake, popular for its steaks, burgers, and Lake Union views. Tuesdays, by the way, are always "Bruce's Night," with $5 Headbutts, $4 Whadyawant well drinks, and $5 Mac & Cheese Nachos, Lloyd's version of the food pyramid.
