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.
