Late Night Drinking
May 11, 2018
An Irish pub and restaurant isn’t what you’d necessarily expect to see in Seattle’s waterfront Kirkland district, but nonetheless, Wilde Rover excels at dishing out large doses of “craic”, alongside cask ales, whiskeys and an extensive food menu.
Decked out inside with dark woods and leather booths, Irish-tinged touches abound – like the emerald green walls and the obligatory Guinness posters. With several big screens, Wilde Rover is the perfect place to catch a sports match, or indulge in the fun yourself with a game of pool at one of their billiards tables, and the competitive fun doesn’t stop there; Wilde Rover also holds a weekly trivia night. As for the refreshments, Wilde Rover prides itself on its selection of Irish whiskeys, even muddling them into some signature cocktails like the Bourbon Bash (a twist on the classic whiskey sour with added apricot liqueur).
There’s also some original cask ales, Guinness (obviously), several other draught beers and a small wine list. If you dine during brunch, Wilde Rover can whip up a mean bloody mary or mimosa, along with a creamy Irish coffee spiked with Tullamore Dew. The food menu is an intriguing mix of hearty American and Irish fare; favourites include the Irish Poutine, Corned Beef & Cabbage, a rather large Sausage Roll with bacon-onion reduction and a traditional Irish breakfast spread.
