Seattle’s oldest neighborhood, West Seattle is one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Comprised of several small neighborhoods, West Seattle as a whole feels like its own independent island. While only minutes from downtown Seattle, West Seattle has a quaint, small town feel that offers a unique blend of independent businesses, beautiful parks, and unbeatable views of the Seattle skyline, the islands, and the Olympic mountains to the west.
West Seattle’s most notable neighborhoods are Alki Beach, Admiral, the Akaska Junction, and the Fauntleroy/Morgan Junction. Connected by the North/South arterial California Ave. SW, these neighborhoods run along the spine of the West Seattle, with Alki beach running down around the point.

West Seattle Restaurants and Bars
West Seattle is home to some of the city’s most unique and enjoyable independently-owned bars and restaurants. Eschewing, for the most part, the high-brow cosmopolitan vibe found elsewhere in the city, West Seattle features quirky, locally-owned businesses that focus on flavor, atmosphere and small-town community. It is entirely common in West Seattle to meet the actual owners of a given establishment. Often, they’ll be the ones serving your drinks, or even sharing them with you. Some favorites of ours include:
- The Cask (a cozy, inviting bar featuring excellent wines and brews)
- Beveridge Place (West Seattle’s premier beer source with 25 rotating taps)
- The West 5 (a West Seattle staple. Try the mac ‘n cheese with steak!)
- Lee’s Asian Restaurant (You haven’t lived until you’ve tried the 7-flavor beef)
- Elliott Bay Brewing (Traditional brewpub with excellent beer and food)
