Post-Game Revelry: Nightlife Options Near Husky Stadium Serve Up Good Food + Drink

Lucky for visitors like you, Seattle takes its athletics scene seriously, and game-watching here is a must-do activity while you're in town. Let's be honest; whether your team wins or loses, you'll be looking for some happenin' nightlife venues in which to celebrate (or drown your sorrows) after attending a sporting event at Husky Stadium.

After all that cheering and rooting at one of the country's more picturesque sporting venues (think mountain views right on the edge of the Montlake Cut), head to a nearby watering hole (or comedy show, if you need a laugh) for some nighttime revelry. The city offers no shortage of friendly venues where good food, good drink and good people can help you celebrate your victory or commiserate over your loss with friends both old and new.

For post-game nightlife options, stay in the University District (where the crowds are, not surprisingly, of the younger persuasion), or take a short trip to nearby party hubs like those in Fremont or Ballard. Whether you're in the mood for classy cocktails, pints of draft beers, live music, improv performances or perhaps even more sports, you'll find the perfect way to mingle amongst locals and to sample the city's thriving nightlife. Cheers!
