#2415 - Oddfellas, Auburn, WA - 2/16/2014

Oddfellas Pub, Auburn, WA
Someone has obviously put some loving attention into Oddfellas Pub and Eatery in Auburn. Replacing The Pit, a fairly cookie-cutter, suburban sports bar closed in 2009, Oddfellas glows with custom woodwork, done by the owners themselves. and featuring their monocled, bowler-hatted logo.

Located in the bottom floor of the Truitt building in downtown Auburn, the hometown of Sir Mix-A-Lot some 28 miles south of Seattle, Oddfellas is part of a substantial downtown revival of the former Slaughter, WA. 'Auburn was originally incorporated as Slaughter, Washington after Lt. William Slaughter, who died in a skirmish fighting Native Americans which are now apart of the modern day Muckleshoot tribe in 1855. At the time, the main hotel in town was called the "Slaughter House." In 1893, a large group of settlers from Auburn, New York, moved to Slaughter, and renamed the town to "Auburn."' (wikipedia)

Tax records list the Truitt building as constructed in 2003, but sitting in a location that hosted an Oddfellows fraternity a century ago, and from the early 1930s into the 2000s hosting the Pastime Tavern and Card Room. The current Oddfellas is a large, brick space which serves a broad menu of modern pub food with hints of English and European themes, with a selection of 25 craft brews on tap.
