Best Dive Bar

Lava Lounge

In 2009, a book of mine was published. It was called Seattle's Best Dive Bars: Drinking & Diving in the Emerald City. That book contained one omission I regret to this day: the Lava Lounge. Maybe it was the fact that it masquerades as a cheeky tiki bar on Belltown's most vibrant block. Or that it features a clientele far more attractive than your average beer hall's. But not only is the dark, tastefully dumpy Lava Lounge a genuine dive bar, it's a genuinely great dive bar. I'm sorry, Lava Lounge—you should have, without question, been in my book. I hope this belated honor will do for an apology. Mike Seely 2226 Second Ave., 441-5660, mamas.com/lavalounge.htm
