King’s Hardware is a fun, dimly-lit bar in Ballard with taxidermy, huge baskets of buffalo wings, alcoholic slushies with rotating flavors (hope for mango lemonade), and two Skee-Ball machines. On the weekends, it’s packed with just the right amount of people so it’s not depressingly empty or super crowded. There are few reasons for you not to spend your night here.
