FOLLOWUP: Larry’s Tavern opens today

1:27 PM: Whimsical touches decorate Larry’s Tavern, which will open today at 4 pm at 3405 California SW. We got a peek on Wednesday afternoon – the pirate-ship chandelier is toward the front, with numerous beer signs along the walls …

Lots of shopping to find what you’ll see. (And some custom touches are still ahead, like a Western Neon-made sign in the works for out front.) As promised, lots of game opportunties. There’s a 4-person Pac-Man table. Darts, too:

(Not just machines – they’ll have Wednesday night trivia starting soon.) Co-proprietor Joel Stedman tells us they’re starting with 12 beers on tap – a wide variety from “cheap draft” on up:

When we first spoke with him in July, they weren’t sure about food offerings – now they’ve settled on personal pizzas and sandwiches, mini egg rolls, tater tots, nuts, simple things like that. And outside food is welcome – for example, if you want to get a pizza at Spiro’s next door, bring it on in! While Larry’s (which is adults-only) opens to the public today – we’ll be stopping in for a few more photos after 4 and will update this story – Saturday is the “grand opening,” as originally announced.

ADDED 10:53 PM: As promised, photos from right after Larry’s doors opened:

    Looks amazing !! Can’t wait for the tater-tots!

    In July they announced they would have a “very good beer program” – yet only three taps are from Seattle breweries, and not very unique ones at that. I’d love to see some more-localized offerings from breweries like Stoup, Two Beers, Counterbalance, Seapine, Lucky Envelope, and the like.

    Why is it that it’s almost impossible to find Lucille on tap? I can only think of one place in WS that I can find it and basically every where else is only Bodhi. Lucille tastes so much better imo and have heard plenty of other people say the same. Kinda just boggles my mind a bit.

      It’s how GT regulate it. It’s the same with ‘Roger’s pilsner’ (which in my opinion is a very good pilsner!) are also hard to find vs. ‘Many’s’ right.

      I always forget how good Lucille is. The casino I bartend up north has it on tap. I haven’t seen it around WS.

    Looks like a nice, diverse tap list. Chuckanut, No-li, Bale Breaker all good.

    Boring Beers.  I’m sorry we have almost 100 breweries in Seattle.   Please rotate in some of the newer ones!

    If you are complaining about the beer selection, maybe open up your own place and have what you want on tap. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
