Hi everyone! The Happy Hour Seekers are back! Tonight we went to Black Bottle, a trendy 21+ gastropub located in Downtown Bellevue between NE 8th and NE 10th Street running parallel with Bellevue Way.
You might be asking yourself what in the world is a gastropub? Unlike an ordinary pub, a gastropub often serves higher quality food. At Black Bottle, they offer a variety of champagnes, wines, beers, and cocktails. There is also an array of food to choose from, ranging from meats to seafood to veggies.
Black Bottle has a rustic, casual vibe. Small plates can easily be shared. Their small Happy Hour menu has a very reasonable average price of around $5 for food and drinks.
We really enjoyed Black Bottle’s interesting selection and great service! Be sure to check out our comments below to find out more!
Today is St. Patrick’s Day and the Happy Hour Seekers celebrated by heading to Bellevue’s Irish pub, Paddy Coyne’s.
Paddy Coyne’s is not just a great place to visit on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s also the perfect place to go for happy hour or meeting friends. It’s like a taste of Ireland located in downtown Bellevue, complete with traditional Irish foods like shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, Guinness-braised Irish beef stew, corn beef and cabbage, bangers and mash, and macaroni and cheese with spicy chicken sausage.
Their happy hour menu ranges from four dollars to nine dollars. They also offer a full bar with Irish whiskey drinks and more. Happy hours are 3 to 6 PM and 10 PM to 1 AM. If you like Irish food, Paddy Coyne’s is a must stop.
Before we go, here are a few fun facts about Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day:
St. Patrick (according to legend) banished all of the snakes from Ireland after they attacked him during a fast.
St. Patrick was actually an Englishman. He was kidnapped by pirates and was sold into slavery in Ireland
The official state color of Ireland is not green, but St. Patrick’s blue.
We hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!!!
