Days turn into weeks, how quick they pass …

(… to paraphrase the line that’s 40 seconds into this cool old song.) In this case, the passing of time to which we refer involves Chuck & Sally’s Tavern north of Morgan Junction. It’s been more than two weeks since a reader first e-mailed us about a hand-lettered sign at C & S saying CLOSED FOR A FEW DAYS/COOLER PROBLEMS; today, that sign is still there. Tried calling; got only a fax tone. E-mailed the property owner; no reply yet. That corner (Cali & Graham) is jumping these days, with future townhouses on the NW corner and a condo conversion on the SE corner (the future “Strata”), so some tavern fans have been wondering about the future of the little blue building The Stranger once fondly called a “TV-laden little dive.”


  1. Not to gossip (although, this is clearly the definition) I heard rumors about C&S closing last year…

  2. I remember the days that if a guy was on strike, they would buy you a beer.
    Use to be a working class neighbor hood.

    hope they can keep it open.

  3. I live right by Chuck n’ Sally’s and have really been missing their jukebox, pool tables, and $3 Hefeweizen pints. I’ll keep you posted if the signs on the door change! I hope they reopen!

  4. A West Seattle icon for over 50 years! I have passed those doors for more than 4 decades. Let’s hope she stays alive.

  5. I agree. Places like this are far and few between. Someone needs to breath some life back into this place and help return her to her former glory. I used to frequent the place back in the 80′s and loved it. It had character!

  6. I agree with all with you. I miss the people and the friendships I’ve made while working there.
    “I love this bar”….that song is still on the Juke box…
