UPDATE: Where to watch Mariners’ first playoff game Friday

ORIGINAL WEDNESDAY REPORT: Friday, the Mariners play a two-decades-in-the-making game – their first playoff game since 2001. It’s happening in Toronto, so most of the cheering will be from 2,500 miles away. Wondering where you can do that cheering in West Seattle? First place we heard about is The Bridge (6301 California SW), opening early – at noon – on Friday to get ready for the 1 pm game. Where else in West Seattle? We’ll be looking around but we’d really appreciate your help too – if you know of other venues, please mention in the comment section or via email at westseattleblog@gmail.com – thank you!

ADDED THURSDAY NIGHT: Along with The Bridge, these establishments have announced they’re opening early so you can watch The Game:

Arthur’s (2311 California SW)
Larry’s Tavern (3405 California SWO
The Benbow Room (4210 SW Admiral Way)
The Admiral Pub (2306 California SW)
The Beer Junction (4511 California SW)
The Westy (7908 35th SW)
Prost West Seattle (3407 California SW)

    Admiral Pub is always a really great place to watch a game. Lots of TVs that are well placed, and a good energy all around. I don’t know if they’re doing anything specific for the Ms playoffs (and I guess don’t usually open til 2:00), but I’d be shocked if they weren’t going to be doing something for the game.

    I’m sure the game will be all over at Westy’s on 35th.

    Larry’s, Poggies, Chupacabra, Admiral Pub, Lodge, West Seattle Brew Co, everywhere I hope!!!

      I don’t think some of those are usually open until later

      Is this a wish list of places you’d like or a list of confirmed businesses that will be open and have the game on?

    I am grabbing some food and going to Beer Junction for baseball and Fresh Hop beers!

    Admiral Pub confirmed on their FB page that they’ll be open early for the game tomorrow! I will probably head over there to watch and “work”.

    I am bringing a group of special education adults out to watch the game. Does anyone know if the Super Deli Mart will be super crowded for the game?

    • Eduactiv October 6, 2022 (5:20 pm)

      Saying “special education adults” sounds super ableist and demeaning. Words matter.

    The Beer Junction posted that they’ll be “tuning in” for it as well. https://instagram.com/stories/thebeerjunction/2943293424114007866?utm_source=ig_story_item_share&igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

      Thanks! We’ll be amassing the confirmed spots – have heard from Arthur’s and the Benbow Room too – in a calendar listing by night’s end. (Go, M’s!)

    WEST WINGS will open at 1 for the game. So excited. Go Mariners!

    I’m watching the game at Fire Cantina on Alki Beach right now. Nice big TVs all playing the game. Highly recommend!
