SEATTLE — For almost 130 years, Central has been in the center of Seattle’s Pioneer Square scene. The place that once hosted miners quickly became ground zero for new music in the late ’80s -- including bands like Soundgarden, Nirvana, Mudhoney, the Melvins, and hundreds of other music innovators.

“The history behind this place, is an honor to be part of it,” said Michael Gill.

It’s a special room is packed with memorabilia that tells the story of Seattle’s grunge area. Established in 1892, they're the oldest saloon in the city -- opening up their doors only three years after the Great Fire.

“You can see how they lower drinks down to the basement during the prohibition.”

Happy hour is from 6 pm to 8 pm, 5 dollars on wells and tap beers.

“It's your classic dive bar -- my mind was blown away at the pours of this place.”
