Central Saloon (The)
Located in Pioneer Square , this is one of the oldest pubs in Seattle. The narrow bar stretches to the back, where tables and chairs face a small stage. Jazz, reggae, rock or blues plays here almost nightly, making this a great place to catch live music. The saloon offers a menu of decent fish, pork and chicken dishes, and the full bar has a wide selection of microbrews on tap. The Central participates in the Pioneer Square joint cover.
I was a part of the group who visited this establishment. We had probably one of the best nights out in a bar ever on Monday. Both bartenders, Jackie and some other beautiful lady, made us feel wanted and made small talk all evening. The vulgarities did exist, but we thought this was all part of the atmosphere. At the end of the night, we were invited back the next evening and tried, only to be denied entry at the door. This place is not extravagent or clean for that matter, but its place in my heart will be solidified by the wooden club that was taken out under the bar. I would visit it again, but only with my comrades from the first time.
Intially, the time we spent at The Central Saloon was great. We were greeted with a barteder calling us vulgar names. We were verbally abused the entire night and thought this was unique and played along.
At the end of night we left and when we returned the next evening we were denied entry. We asked why and the gentlemen at the door said he did not like us and said we should leave. This was disppointing for the fact that we thought the abuse we received the night before was entertaining.
To our dismay they did not agree and we asked..."Then why were we treated the way we were???" They said forget it and explained that we should leave. We are sure people will continue to visit this establishment, but hope they think twice before they walk in. It is unfortunate that they treat customers the way they do. Do yourself a favor and pass by The Central Saloon...it was just disappointing.
