The Roanoke is a Seattle institution - our building has been here since the 1920's and a bar has been here in one form or another ever since. Check out the cool photos in the back room for all of its incarnations.
We're famous for our Wednesday $1 homemade tacos and $1 beers, our baked-to-order nachos, our two ping pong tables and deck, and being an all-around great place to hang out.
More than a few people have met their future partner here - check out the wedding wall. Whether you come here alone or with a big group, you're sure to leave having made a few new friends, especially if you sit at the bar.
Get ready for the 2nd Annual Cookies for Kids contest, in honor of our friend Greg Hickman. This year's proceeds will benefit Art with Heart, an organization that helps heal kids through art. The Contest will be held Sunday, Dec. 1st, at 2 pm! Entry forms from a bartender or below.

And the Dawgs are back where they belong! We're the perfect pre-func place - meet up here and catch a cab down to the game. No muss, no fuss.
