If you can bear the personal hell that is finding a parking spot at the Bellevue Place Mall, Tavern Hall is the downtown bar for you. They have a ton of great beers on tap, hand-shuffleboard, and skillets of braised brisket nachos when a salad isn’t going to cut it. And even if you bring the entire crew for a round of ciders and soft pretzels, there shouldn’t be a crazy wait.
