Upscale beer-bar chain Henry’s Tavern, whose first Seattle outpost has been a go-to for pre- and post-game revelry thanks to its location near Safeco Field, opens a new location in South Lake Union today with a smaller footprint and grab-and-go options for breakfast and lunch.
Henry’s SLU spot sits on the ground floor of an Amazon office tower at 501 Fairview Avenue N. This bar isn’t as big as the sprawling SoDo spot, but there are still 50 beers on tap and a menu of sandwiches, burgers, and wok dishes. For those who dine in, there are also 16 televisions for watching sports, a shuffleboard table, and a happy hour with 10 discounted plates.
The grab-and-go counter will be open Monday through Friday at breakfast and lunch with coffee, soda, juice, and snacks like energy bars and yogurt. Lighter fare like a pear, walnut, and prosciutto salad, protein power bowl, and crab and avocado roll are also available. This Henry’s location fills crowlers (can-growlers) to go, too.
Henry’s Tavern got its start in downtown Portland; other branches are located at the Portland International Airport, in Denver, and in Plano, Texas. The SoDo location opened in 2013, and a Bellevue location followed this past August as part of the massive Lincoln Square expansion.
