Our Story


Established in the early 1990’s, the Park Pub has lived a rich beer history and a unique relationship with Woodland Park Zoo. It all began in 1993, when two guys named Mac and Jack became one of the first to brew an unfiltered and dry hopped amber ale specifically for Park Pub. It was named African Amber in relation to the zoo, became wildly popular, and the rest is history. Then in 2007, we were the first account to carry Two Beers Brewing who now produce nearly 6,000 barrels annually and have a sister company Seattle Cider. We rotate most of our 15 taps regularly but next time you stop in there is a good chance you will find Mac & Jack’s or Two Beers on tap!


In addition to our love for craft beer we offer a large collection of spirits, wine, and American pub favorites including burgers, sandwiches, salads, fish, pasta, and a rotating fresh sheet. Our menu takes pub fare to the next level utilizing quality local ingredients whenever possible and recipes made from scratch. Our cocktail menu showcases tasty combinations of spirits, muddled herbs, and fresh squeezed citrus.


While we currently offer a wide selection of food and drink the Park Pub has evolved over the years since the beginning when only draft was offered. However, today we are a thriving neighborhood restaurant and pub serving Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, Greenlake, Ballard, and Fremont. We are family friendly with a kid’s menu, highchairs, and booster seats always available. Since the Park Pub changed ownership in July 2013, 7 HD TV’s, spacious booths, and an extended patio have been added. Don’t worry, the Park Pub still has a dart board, pool table, lounge area, and the perfect space to host a part of 25-50 people.


See you soon!
