The Westy set to open in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood


The Westy is about to open a new location in the Roosevelt neighborhood of Seattle. It’s just what every neighborhood needs: a killer sports bar with kickass beer on tap and none of the other sports bar nonsense. The official opening date is set for Thursday, January 4th. Doors open at 3:00.

Located in the former home of Pies and Pints, the second iteration of The Westy is just a couple doors down the street from Toronado, another Seattle beer mecca.


Simply put, The Westy is an upscale sports bar. What does that mean? Well, there are 20 TVs (2 projection) for watching the big game, but much of the similarity to traditional sports bars ends there. Do not expect to see Bud Light posters or Coors Light neons. Do not expect to find any Dilly Dilly beers on tap. The Westy is committed to craft beer, offering a curated collection of 23 rotating taps dedicated to beer. Two of the lines are dedicated to sour beer. For those interested, they also have wine and cocktails and approach that part of the bar with the same reverence for quality.


If you’ve been to The Westy’s original location is in West Seattle, the new location will feel familiar. The décor and the vibe are very similar, as is the food menu. One exception, the Roosevelt location is all-ages. There is an adults-only bar area, but there’s also plenty of room for those who want to bring the kiddos. The new Westy is also quite a bit bigger, with a seating capacity of 99.

    1. It is sad that Pies and Pints went out of business, but IMHO that’s no reason to dismiss the business that has moved into the location. Bros? Girls like beer and sports too. This is not a bro-ish kind of sports bar. But, I understand that many people are in mourning over the closure of Pies and Pints.

    2. Your comment wreaks of ignorance.

      Pies and Pints was closing either way, and they were taking their recipes with them. There is nothing you or anyone could do to keep it around.

      Just be glad a reputable group went into this space instead of another generic dive bar with sticky floors.

  1. Within the past year I’ve moved north out of the West Seattle area and have been back to the original Westy. It’s a great place to go. The staff is always nice friendly and inviting. And the food! Seasonal menu, plenty of options and the chefs choice is always a surprise. When I heard Westy was coming to Roosevelt I was thrilled! Super excited and looking forward to dinner tonight! 1/4/18. Yay!

  2. Dear Roosevelt neighborhood. You will not be disappointed once you visit The Westy Roosevelt. The owners put a lot of thought into the community they want to be a part of, their menu and libations. My husband and I are frequent flyers at the Westy’s WS location. The food is always great, the blood mary’s are amazing (we love the pickled pepper), and the westy burger rocks! Good luck Paul and JP at this new spot. We will visit soon!
