See below for our up-to-date list of the best places to visit in Seattle to watch Michigan sports with other Wolverines.
Buckley’s in Belltown – This is our primary sports watch location for all Michigan football games, and for selected basketball games, and for occasional other sports. It’s always open for early games and serves breakfast. For big games it is standing-room only and boisterous (in a good way). Lots of televisions and during Michigan football games, they are all tuned to the Michigan game. Lots of cowbell. Singing of “The Victors” after every touchdown. Close to 200 Wolverines in attendance. Trivia contests. Club T-Shirts for sale. If you haven’t been yet, you owe it to yourself to go.
J J Mahoney’s Irish Pub Our home for watching Michigan football on the Eastside! JJ Mahoney’s is an Irish Pub that opens early for us to get those breakfast games as well as any other times games are played. The staff are fun and the Michigan flag is flying all season long in the area dedicated to the alumni group, with all TVs in the area on the game with sound, and the space is expandable as needed with more TVs available. The place has good food, lots of free parking, accessible by bus, and is, of course, very family friendly. The bar serves Michigan beer, big bonus for Founders Beer fans. The employees next door at Comcast say they know when the Michigan game is on, they can hear us through the wall! Located in the Bella Bottega shopping center, there’s a theater and shopping nearby for activities before or after. Come try us out!!
Old Stove Brewing – Co-founder Chris Moore is a Michigan alum who grew up attending games in The Big House. Old Stove has a prime location in the new MarketFront area of Pike Place Market. They are serving breakfast for the early games. Old Stove is not a dedicated sports bar – visiting there is more about your view of the water than watching TV – but during Michigan football games Chris and company raise the Michigan banners, fire up a couple of big screens, and the focus is entirely on the Maize’n Blue. If you haven’t visited and met Chris and company yet, then this place is definitely worth a trip down to the Market on a fall Saturday.
