Dive Bars on KUOW
Yesterday, Mike Seely from The Weekly was on KUOW talking about dive bars. He's written a book on the subject. As previously mentioned, he names Kelly's at 3rd & Bell as Seattle's most frightening bar. It's not one of my haunts and I haven't been in it for years, but his assessment seems pretty accurate. It truly is a genuine dive - unlike, say, the Lava Lounge or the Whisky Bar (yeah, that's how they spell it). You can listen to the whole interview here. And even though there's only a passing mention of Kelly's, it's still pretty amusing. Seely's original article is here.
