Pioneer Square has an outstanding selection of bars, and Good Bar is no exception. This two-storied spot is an excellent place to spend a few hours sipping Sazeracs and eating charcuterie. Besides the antique bank door (wheel and all) and extremely attractive space, our favorite thing about Good Bar is the daily meat and cheese selection. You can order some charcuterie as snacks with a baguette and beer butter, or if you’re wanting more of a meal, get the sloppy joe with stout and roasted onion aioli. Happy hour extends longer than most places, so you have until the clock strikes 7pm every day to get in on the specials.
