1. The Chieftain 908 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122 (Capitol Hill)

Opened in the Seattle U-adjacent space vacated by Doc Hastings, and named (in a sly nod to the university's not-PC former mascot) for traditional Irish clan chiefs by the pub vet behind Finn MacCool's and McGilvra's, this fireplace'd 99-seater's serving a mash-up of American & Emerald Isle eats in a cavernous, polished wood-heavy bar made sporty by the addition of flatscreens, a pool table, and a pinball machine.
