SEATTLE — This gathering spot in Old Everett has been serving great drinks and great company for nearly 100 years. Built in 1929, it was originally called Browns Mug -- but since 1940, locals know it as The Fireplace Bar.
"This is the local Cheers," said customer Tim Neal, "Everybody knows everybody, everybody looks out for each other, I don't feel uncomfortable with my wife coming in here by herself."
Customers and staff alike are so friendly, you might even snag a free drink during your visit. "You're gonna meet somebody that's going to be friendly, outgoing -- chances are they are going to buy you a drink," said customer Tim Casper.
One fact that makes this bar stand out is that they are open 365 days a year, so you can still grab a drink on holidays. And their limits don't stop there. When it comes to bar games, Fireplace has skeeball, a pool table, pinball, golf, a jukebox and dartboards. They even have dart leagues that play among the crowds.
"People are convinced that we are haunted," explained bartender Shauna Stone, "Apparently there is a family that haunts -- a dad and his song who both were customers here."
Even if their souls still wander around the building, everyone agrees Fireplace is a friendly neighborhood pub that people can count on to always have fun times and great drinks.
"It's a great place to be," said Tim Neal.
Happy Hour at The Fireplace Bar takes place daily from 3 to 6 pm with domestic drafts and well drinks priced at $3. They also have great daily specials:
- Monday - $4 micros
- Tuesday - $3 wells
- Wednesday - $2 PBRs and Natural Lights
- Thursday - $3 domestic drafts
- Friday - $4 fireball
Their special is the Bluefire Margarita. It mixes tap beer, margarita mix, blue curacao, and tequila!
