With a sign outside that seems to have gone unwashed for decades (perhaps since its opening in the post-prohibition year of 1936), floorboards that creak in protest at every step, and very smoky air, this bar seems to be appropriate for those who take their nightlife seriously. Its bark, however, is much worse than its bite. The clientele consists primarily of fun-loving fans of retro fashions. So, put a quarter on the pool table or pull up a stool at the bar and order one of the many available microbrews.
In the mid 80's the Bikers and Truckers made this home. We would desend from SU and finish up Engineering Labs in the corner table. Painted the walls, and we got to write all over them, until they painted again. This is a place were these memories are made and can be made. Great people, with a good place to meet and greet. Go Cheiftains!
And fond memories indeed. A long way from home(Penna), the Comet surely was an inspiration during times of despair and destitution. Typically, I would hang out at Pike Place Market, have lunch and then head up to the Comet for libations(Rainier Beer)and gossip with the gang. Would always have a musical request for Ethyl,and a little puff back in the pool room. Visitng Seattle in 1996 I made it a point to take my wife there and show her my favorite haunt. Hats off to a fine tavern, it will always be a part of me.
This place is really great for seeing small locals play their hearts out. There's no real stage, which makes this place more homey than anything else. It's a bit like a house party, but with a slightly better sound system. Plus, good location... Busy area.
