That’s what Tankard & Tun is there for, and yes, we’re as surprised as you are that romance can even exist inside the chaos of Pike Place. It’s a small space with a big marble bar and stemmed glasses of beer from Pike Brewing Co. The food ranges from frisee salads to rockfish chowder and very delicious fish and chips.
