The West 5 is named after the old telephone prefix for West Seattle and this nostalgia drive continues inside, with appealingly retro décor: classic motel signage and lots of dark wood. Bar food is solid, satisfying stuff, real belly-filling dishes and good value too. Staff are friendly, drinks are decent, but it’s the back-in-the-day vibe that really makes this place special. A Seattle classic.
