#1413 - Harbor Lights, Tacoma, WA - 4/14/2011

Founded by Yugoslavian immigrant Anton Barcott 62 years ago, Harbor Lights is owned by the Anthony's chain now, but it preserves its mom and pop individuality, especially in the lounge.  The restaurant and bar hover over Commencement Bay, and caters to old school seafood fans.

The lounge is full of vintage liquor bottles, vintage workers, and vintage patrons, and serves strong, cheap drinks.

2761 North Ruston Way Tacoma, WA 98402 - (253) 752-8600
Est. 1959

This was the lunchtime hangout spot for countless local businessmen, lawyers/judges, and politicians for decades. Movers and shakers in the Tacoma "connected" Old Town scene. Known for ferocious drinks and good, if pricey, food. Dinner was a different crowd but the bar on a weekday lunch was something else. If that bar could talk it would probably unearth a zillion skeletons in Tacoma's past.
