Our People

Like the movie Cocktail, but without the fancy shit

We’re A Lot Like You

We like sunsets, the smell of rain, and long walks on the beach. And booze.

Origin Story

In 2012, Sean McAteer got tired of working for the man, and decided to follow the American Dream of giving up his vacation and health insurance to run his own business. And thus, Hillside Bar was born.

Hillside Bar opened its doors on Capitol Hill on December 8, 2012. It quickly became a favorite neighborhood hangout for locals who just want to, well, hang out.

Hillside is a come-as-you-are kind of place. So come, as you are, and have a drink.

“I came here for the first time on a dismal weekday night, one of those inevitable outcomes of a long stressful day. Nick, one of the three awesome bartenders I’ve met thus far, quickly served my drink and entertained a chat about the origins of the girl punk rock band currently playing. The numerous frequently-rotating taps eased my mind as I tried a variety of new brews. The locals and randoms, too, were happy to let me join in their conversations. Needless to say, much needed unwinding that evening.

Every time I came here since, I ended up having at least one good drink and interesting conversation. There’s plenty of space, a comfy couch area, as well as a pool and arcades. And peanuts! Remember when that was standard at bars?

Whether you’re looking for a stiff drink, a good company, or just getting your mind off of things, Hillside never disappoints!.”
