Jules Maes Saloon - Georgetown WA

Established in 1888, the Jules Maes Saloon has been opening it’s doors to hungry and thirsty customers for 125 years.

Having been remodeled a number of times,

it still has a historic look and blue-collar feel.

When it first opened all those years ago,

the Rainier Brewery was across the street,

in a beautiful complex of old red brick buildings.

The brewery employed 300,

that’s a lot of thirsty men.

Georgetown is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Seattle.

It ‘got left in the past,’

for years it was just dingy and rundown.

But a few years ago,

people began to notice the small neighborhood.

As home prices rose dramatically in Seattle,

you could still purchase a modest old home in Georgetown for a proverbial song.

And you were only about three miles from downtown.

Homes and businesses alike have seen renovation and revitalization,

but regardless of a new coat of paint,

the neighborhood still retains its blue-collar down-to-earthiness.

My husband and and I enjoy eating out during happy hour several times a month.

Prices are more reasonable then.

We always go late on Friday afternoons before the after work crowd gets out.

:     :     :


we decided to try Jules Maes Saloon.

It was already quite busy when we arrived,

but we scored a table for two tucked into a corner next to a large front window.

We each ordered a beer,

my husband had a PBR and I had a Manny’s Pale Ale from the Georgetown Brewery.

We also ordered an appetizer plate called ‘Flatliners.’

I have no idea what the name represents.

It was tatertots topped with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese,

diced onion, green pepper, fresh tomato,

and crumbled bacon with a dollop of sour cream.

It was really tasty,

I plan on making some here at home,

it was that good!
