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.

5 star rating

I had been stopping by Hillside occasionally for a while, always enjoying myself. I am a beer and a shot kind of guy and they have plenty of both there. Service was always good and there was a good mix of friendly regulars and people from the neighborhood, like myself.  Chill atmosphere and free peanuts didn't hurt either.

What brought my rating up to 5 stars was their trivia night. My friends and I had been looking for a trivia night on the Hill that worked with our schedule. Hillside has one the first Wednesday of every month. We tried it a few times and LOVED it!  The questions were a good mix of easy and challenging. There were 3 rounds. Some specific categories and some random. The winning team received the cash pot from the entry fees. What we really liked was that the team that came in last won a free pitcher of Olympia beer. We almost considered bombing just to get the free beer. 🙂

The host is entertaining and fun. We have gone twice now and will definitely be back! Even if you are not into trivia, Hillside is a great place to have some cocktails with good friends and maybe even make a few new ones.
