#2337 #S1183 - Bar Sue, Seattle - 11/8/2013

Update: Bar Sue announced its permanent closure on Sep 25, 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here's how Bar Sue describes itself:

"Seattle based Southern style bar on Capitol Hill, great food, ridiculous happy hour, lots o' whiskey, karaoke and big f'n pickles!"

Here's how Bar Sue explains its name:

"Sue Kerr Hicks (December 12, 1895 – June 17, 1980) was an American jurist who practiced law and served as a circuit court judge in the state of Tennessee. He is best known for his role as a co-instigator and prosecutorin the 1925 trial of John T. Scopes, a Dayton, Tennessee teacher accused of teaching the Theory of Evolution in violation of Tennessee state law. Hicks may have also been the inspiration for the Shel Silverstein song “A Boy Named Sue,” which was popularized by country music performer Johnny Cash in 1969."

So the place has a southern theme, but it's never quite clear if "south" means the American South or the Georgetown neighborhood in south Seattle. You can get hush puppies and homemade Fireball and pulled pork sandwiches, not to mention some well made cocktails.
