#1375 #S833 - Ballard Ave Pub, Seattle - 2/19/2011

Update:  The Ballard Ave Pub was (less than shockingly) closed on the weekend of July 1.

There are lots of pubs on Ballard Avenue, but Ballard Avenue Pub is not one of them. It's on Market, in the former location of Mon Petit Shoes, where you might end up if you drove north on Ballard Ave and didn't stop when you ran out off street. So they're kinda hard to search for (as pubs that are actually on Ballard Ave tend to come up higher), and they don't have a web site -- indeed they have posted in comments of a local blog that they probably won't have one in the future. (They also apparently didn't have the appropriate business licenses.)

So they obviously don't feel a pressing need to market themselves, and the decor echoes this, seeming rather soul-less, with the exception of the recovered-wood bar counter top.  They do have a quite good selection of beers.  So I suppose we'll see if that is enough.
