Best bars in Thurston County

“There's always a party at Flannigan's Irish Pub. In addition to sports on the TVs, check out their Flannigan's Bloody Mary Supreme. It's a meal on a stick with a great story. Or order "the Pretzel" which is a meal unto itself and comes with several dipping mustards. Say hi to Karl, the owner, when you're there. He's a hoot and loves tourists who come to Puyallup.”

“Dimly-lit with semi-private booths. Electronic dance music, world, metal: the jukebox plays all sorts. The bartenders are veritable alchemists: have them fix you their choice. ”

“Charlie's has the best salad bar in town, but I love their French Dip sandwiches and fish and chips as well. Locals hang out in the bar here because its a great place to relax after work with good people. Great place to have lunch or dinner with family, friends or co-workers and the staff is friendly and delivers your order quickly with a smile.”

“Serving local craft beers and ciders, this bar is dedicated to inviting a crowd as diverse as their beer selection. Big screen TVs feature sports events and classic pinball machines lure patrons in to play and compete with each other. A fun place to visit.”
