Paddy Coyne's Irish Pub

Everything about this South Lake Union pub cries out for a cold, wet Seattle winter night: the toasty fireplace ringed with chairs; the meaty, bay-scented Irish stew; the deep brown pints of Guinness. Even the service is warm, though without being overly chummy. But don't wait for the seasons to change to visit. In the Irish tradition (Coyne hails from Connemara), no matter what the time of year, you'll feel welcome at Paddy's. The happy hour menu is available every day from 4 to 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to midnight, and it's generous: hot, hot buffalo wings ($3.50), a crisp wedge salad with blue cheese and bacon chunks ($2.75), and that scrumptious stew ($4.25), plus burgers ($4.50), fish and chips ($5.50), and more. Pints aren't cheap—in the $4.50 to $5.50 range, depending if you go local or imported—but you can't put a price on warming the soul. 1190 Thomas St., 206-405-1548, SOUTH LAKE UNION
