Tuesday, February 21st, was beyond our expectations. People were so kind and generous and patient while we did our best to quickly serve everyone.
So many turned out, in fact that we were able to donate $1,222 EACH to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.
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.
Not fancy. Just classic.
Our back room is reservable and free! A great place to host your party. And if you ask nicely, we might even put a greeting on the reader board! Call 206/324-5882 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the calendar.
