Tacoma’s Parkway Tavern isn’t just one of the best bars in Tacoma, it’s one of the best bars in the world- just ask the folks who crowd into The Parkway year round to sample it’s stunning variety of delicious beers. To be among the most hard core beer fans, visit on a Monday night for Randall Night, when Parkway bartender Sean picks a special beer to run through other special ingredients. Tacoma’s come Monday after Monday to fill their Randall punch cards and get the coveted Randall commemorative t-shirts!

My friend Anne and I visited the Parkway a while back and partook of the video games, shuffleboard, and the best front porch bar patio Tacoma has to offer:

The Parkway is located at 313 North I Street and is open 11am-7pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 2am on Saturdays and Sundays.
