Slow Boat Tavern is a dog-friendly beer bar that seems like it was opened by someone who knows their sht but left the decor to someone who doesn’t - and that’s fine by us. There are peanut shells on the floor, dollar bills thumbtacked to the ceiling, and a neon sign that says “Fck Yelp,” that tints the whole bar dark pink. The tables are made from repurposed arcade games, and the beers range from a $3 Rainier to ones whose names look like what happens when you press a bunch of keys on the keyboard (such as “Hofbrouwerijke,” which yes, we know is also Dutch). Slow Boat is calm even on a Friday night , so it’s a prime location for more conversational evenings. And peanut-eating.
