  • Seattles original El Gaucho was part speak-easy and part Hunts breakfast club. That was 1953 and it was run by Jim Ward. By 1985 that era had come to end.
  • Best. Burger. Ever.
  • One of the best happy hours in Seattle! Brent is the best behind the bar!
  • Great Steaks!
  • Happy hour all day on Sunday and Monday.
  • In the dimly lit, cabaret-like ambiance, a vodka cocktail can cost up to $22. A porterhouse: $65. More of an expense-account and celebratory-steak-dinner kinda place. Happy hour: Su-M 5-11 & T-F 5-7
