#661 - Yen Wor Garden (China Jade), Seattle (Greenwood) - 6/7/2008

Update: Yen Wor Garden closed in April 2015


Amazing. For years I've felt that The Baranof was the ultimate Seattle dive bar, and tonight I discover one that may top it virtually right across the street. It has the olive-skinned, gangster looking guy in a silk shirt singing motown, the squat bewhiskered cowboy, the patrons staggering around like ladders in a windstorm. Epic.

8580 Greenwood Avenue North Seattle, WA 98103-3614 - (206) 784-7422

#660 - The Crosswalk Tavern, Seattle (Greenwood) - 6/7/2008

Update: The Crosswalk Tavern was closed by new owners in mid-year 2017 to be converted into "Coindexter's."


Basically everything that's boring and characterless in a dive bar -- a poor cousin to the classic dives up and across the street. It's not readily apparent how the Crosswalk manages to stay in business,  unless it's to avoid any chance of a crowd, but it has been listed here since the 1987 Polk directory.
