#1159 #S701 - Iron Bull, Seattle - 6/26/2010

Update: Iron Bull closed "for remodeling" in late 2016 and never reopened. It was replaced by the Octopus Bar, which relocated here from a just a few lots west.

Basically, the old Goldies with a few more TVs and some murals.  A neighborhood bar for watching sports and playing pool.

Historical Notes: This space has hosted a bar since at least 1935 (the building was constructed during prohibition in 1925). City guides list a bar owned by Chas. Wilson in '39, then the Checkerboard Tavern or just The Checkerboard from the 40s to the 60s, the Iron Bull by 1965, Goldies by the 90s until 2010, until the current owners, Gerald Simonsen and Bernie McGuire of the Rat and Raven, returned it to the Iron Bull later in 2010.
