What an awesome little spot. Quirky layout, friendly staff, and mellow regulars. A great stop if you're bar hopping this area.

I love the hillside- it has a few different spaces (back room with couches, upstairs game room, pool area, bar) and the bartenders are great. It's everything a bar should be, cheap and stiff drinks, fun community, doesnt take itself seriously.

Great place. East coast vibes and atmosphere where the seattle freeze is just a myth. Drinks are poured great and everyone is so friendly and open to talking.

I love that one bartender. That scary one from monsters inc. Randall? Not so frightening behind the bar.

One of the best dive bars left on the hill. Pinball, pool, and darts!

Walked over to Hillside in search for a dartboard. The friendly bartender let us use the good darts behind the bar and was extremely helpful. Beers were good - porter and blonde and darts were fantastic.

Chill environment that really never got busy but always somehow managed to have a plethora of different characters in it.

Bartenders were super friendly and not crowded for a Saturday night. We loved that they had darts and we enjoyed the pinball and skeet ball too.

Pool, pinball, darts. Two floor bar with a city block of character.

5 star rating Just got off work and decide to grab a drink somewhere. My first impression when I walked into this place was like "Wow, this place is Lit." It's a popular place to hang out I guess. I went there on a Sunday around 4ishpm. I sat down and got a Rainier, it was very cheap $2.50 that my kind of deal I want for a can when I go to a bar. They were some Jell-O-Shots laying there at the bar and it was free. I have like 2 of them, apple flavor and it was pretty good. I'm gonna take my other friends here next time when I'm around the area. Great place, cheap drinks, and loud crowd!

One of my favorite bars in Seattle, and the owner/staff are all awesome. Good location at Denny/Olive away from the crowded area of Pike/Pine in Cap Hill. Has pool table, juke box, a couple pinball machines and darts upstairs.

I loved the bartender. He was very polite and welcoming. I had a rough day traveling to Seattle, then with my vehicle. After ordering pizza from next door (aaaammmaaazzzaing) then having a pbr on draft my worries subsided and I felt I could continue to overcome whatever Seattle could bring my way.

I'd recommend this join to anyone, especially ones with a dog. The customer is rad, the atmosphere is welcoming and they had about 10 + beers on draft. Two thumbs up on the prices too!!

I don’t even live in Seattle anymore and still recommend this place to who ever asks where they should go when they visit Seattle. It will always be home base for me.

5 star rating This is my go-to bar in Cap Hill. Love it so much.

To start with, they do trivia once a month on the first Wed of the month. The questions can be hard, but luckily they offer a DFL prize if you come in dead last, so you can win even if you lose.

They have free peanuts for drunk munchies and have some board games behind the bar for people to play. There's a pool table and a juke box and more games upstairs. There's a buck hunter, a couple of pinball machines, a skeeball table/board, and two darts boards. So fun!

The one weird thing is that the ladies room uses curtains as "doors" to the stalls and sometimes drunk girls don't think and simply rip them open... lol. Nice to meet you too. But if you can get through the night without being walked in on, it's a fan-freakin-tastic place to drink.

5 star rating Great service and a really fun atmosphere.  Went there for trivia last night.  Thankfully, they have a prize for last place (a pitcher of beer) that my group was able to "win".  Well worth the $3/person to play.  Definitely will be back next time I find myself in the Cap Hill area

I live right around the corner from this place, and I didn't really go in much when they first opened, but lately the Hillside has been growing on me big time. Great layout, relaxing atmosphere, friendly bartenders who will take the time to chat with you, and cool regulars who will strike up a conversation with a stranger. I'm a fan.
