Four Corners Tavern
28071 State Highway 3 NE
Four Corners Tavern - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Four Corners Tavern is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
Heads Up Brewery
9960 Silverdale Way NW
Heads Up Brewery - While you don't need to be wearing a suit to get into Heads Up Brewery, looking nice will help. The crowd is attractive and the bartenders even more so. If you're looking for a nice spot to hang with friends and meet new (attractive) people, Heads Up Brewery will do the trick.
Maple Leaf Tavern
1735 Wheaton Way
Maple Leaf Tavern - You might see a celeb here. But he/she will probably be on one of the many flat screen TVs lining the walls. Maple Leaf Tavern is the place you'd likely go to to watch that big game but you'll probably have so much fun, you'll stick around longer.

Portside Pub - Some bars are legendary. The kind of watering hole that you'll remember for most of your life. Portside Pub? It's not one of them. Located at [Address], it's pretty much your vanilla bar. Which isn't a bad thing.
Harbour Public House
231 Parfitt Way SW
Bainbridge Island, WA
Harbour Public House - The Harbour Public House is a great little find on Seattle's Bainbridge Island, right off the ferry docks. The menu runs the gamut from Italian pastas to classic pub grub and the selection of ales and lagers is excellent.
1220 Sylvan Way
Hansens - If you're planning on wearing sneakers, hoodies or any other casual apparel, you should probably go to another lounge. Hansens, located at [Address] prides itself on being selective at the door. So if you don't look good, you probably aren't getting in.
Stocking up your home bar
By Russ Cobbe
Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.
Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.
Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.
For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato). Don't forget to have lots of ice on hand. If you make your own ice use bottled water so you don't get a chlorine flavour to your drinks. Ice should go in the glass first to avoid splashing and to cool the ingredients as they get added.
Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
