#723 - The Corner Pocket, Seattle (West Seattle) - 11/9/2008

Update: The Corner Pocket closed Dec 2, 2016, when the owner Michael Eugene Main was arrested for routinely selling cocaine in the bar.

In 1979 brothers Dave and Jerry Norberg converted an old bomb shelter into an upscale wine and beer tavern called "The Alasks Pipeline." This lasted into the 90s, when it briefly became the "California Underground," before the "Corner Pocket," which remains today.

The current version is nothing special to look at, but I like the downstairs location and I liked the people hanging out there. I might give this my Great Dive rating if the Poggie Tavern weren't right down the street.

4302 Southwest Alaska Street #204, Seattle, WA 98116 - (206) 933-0320
Previous bars in this location: The California Underground, Alaska Pipeline
