Imagine a glorious place where you and your dog can soak up unlimited fútbol, bar munchies, and highbrow libations; where pups sprawl freely, and cuddles are in sync with brew sips. Welcome to The Dray.
This cozy den with a penchant for squirrels (and dogs) is most boisterous about their impressive selection of rotating beers, but their ciders, wine, and Stumptown coffee are worthy contenders. Locals pop over while their laundry spins nearby, or cram in to catch the game on a dreary Seattle day. The Dray’s warm, pub atmosphere lends itself from the mid-morning until the wee hours. Dog-ear this one for a late night chat or testosterone and hops fueled soccer game.
The narrow, almost-tree house (made largely from reclaimed Douglas fir of the Northwest) fills up quick, especially during a big match, but never feels too cramped—just head over early to snag a cushy bench for Fido. A tight space indeed, The Dray chugs along as an impressive, well oiled machine of a cabin. You’ll catch the bartender whipping up homemade pesto, sandwiches, and espresso drinks in between draft pulls.
Phinney Ridge’s favorite watering hole hosts a modest but more than sufficient menu, and laidback attitude—the only things that are superfluous are the outpouring of dog love and beer. Bout time for a brew? The Sounder sandwich, homemade pretzels, and IPAs are tucked in this dim denizen on 65th.
Best for: cabin corgis, hoppy puppies, soccer-loving socialites, Seattle sports fanatics
