Pickle has broadened my horizons when it comes to visiting places in Seattle. From time to time I’d like to highlight some of my favorite dog friendly places. I’m not being compensated for this post, just sharing my opinions on what I consider some pretty cool places in the city.
This week’s edition of “Dog Friendly Seattle” brings us to Chuck’s Hop Shop. Chuck’s has two locations, one in Seattle’s Central District and one in Ballard. Since the Central District location is two blocks from our house (so convenient, right!?) I can really only speak for this location, but rest assured that both are great!
Who: Chuck’s Hop Shop: Central District
What: A combination craft beer shop and bar. Chuck’s has hundreds of selections of beer, cider and wine in their many coolers, as well as 50 rotating ciders and beers on tap. A great place to come hang out with your friends, watch a sporting event on their many TVs (they had an old Muhammad Ali fight on last week!) and play a board game. Chuck’s is rather spacious, offering both indoor and outdoor seating, and is both dog and kid friendly. Come down to buy a six pack to go, a pint to stay, or fill up that growler for home.
Where: 2001 E Union St, Seattle
When: Mon-Thu: 11 AM to 12 AM, Fri-Sat: 11 AM to 1 AM, Sun: 11 AM to 12 AM
Why: If the hundreds of beer selections weren’t reason enough, how about the rotating food trucks they have in their parking lots each night? Or, how about the fact they are dog friendly (great!) and family friendly? How about the fact they have a freezer with Full Tilt ice cream (so many vegan options)? How about the spacious indoor/outdoor seating? Great location? Cool staff? Okay, if you don’t get it by now, I can’t help you!
How: With friends, with your dog, your family, or even just to peak your head in to get out of the cold, Chuck’s has lots to offer to every beer enthusiast. You can order one of there 50 drinks they have on tap, or buy a bottle from the refrigerators to go or drink on site (for a small cork fee). The bar tenders are always super friendly and helpful in helping me pick through all the choices and making a decision. Don’t forget to fill your growlers!
