Grab a drink on a sunken ship at The Octopus Bar in Wallingford - 5 Star Dive Bars

Their signature drink is the Shipwrecked Molly drink topped with a Swedish fish! #k5evening

SEATTLE — Walking on Wallingford's popular N. 45th St., you're sure to do a double-take when you see The Octopus Bar.

The octopus tentacle and anchor on their blue, red and yellow neon sign can't be missed. That, alongside their next-level nautical theme that persists on the outside and the inside.

 "You are in the ocean, you are in a ferry," said bartender Thaleia Sundquist-Carr.

Inside, a sign reads Always At Home, Forever At Sea. Even though the bar isn't located alongside the Sound, customers are transported to the inside of a sunken ship.

"There are quite a bit decorations on the walls, all of these decorations have a story behind it," said bartender Andrew Lowden.

They also have a friendly group of bartenders, and it's a great place to hang out with old friends and make new ones. 

"If you want to see what family feels, a neighborhood feel looks like, that's what the Octopus is all about" said customer Jeff Cornejo.

The Shipwrecked Molly is The Octopus Bar's most iconic drink. It mixes Deep Eddy, plain vodka, blue curacao, pineapple juice, orange juice and soda -- garnished with a Swedish fish.

But if you ask Extreme Jose, he will say that his favorite drink is Ruby Mainsail, a mix drink with Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka, Grapefruit Juice, Soda, Rosemary Syrup, Lemon and Rosemary.
