What We’re About
Having opened in July of 2010, Auto Battery Bar is one of the newest residents in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The product of the same visionaries who brought you PoDog, Auto Battery Bar is unlike any of it’s Capitol Hill neighbors. We are a hybrid sports bar housed in the building of a former auto shop and retain the casual atmosphere, ambiance, and name of our former resident. Auto Battery plays off of that garage vibe with a selection of specialty drinks with relevant names, like the Spark Plug, the Backfire, and the 57 Chevy. The Auto Battery staff even emulates that neighborhood auto shop charm with their efficient service and friendly
demeanor, even getting to know the names of many of our customers. However, with 9 flat-screen televisions and a good mix of sports fanatics and people just looking for a good drink from a friendly face, no one could mistake this upbeat bar for anything but what it is: *Capitol Hill’s Best Sport’s Bar!*
With 9 televisions, we have the capability of showing most any of the Seattle area sporting events whether it be the University of Washington Huskies, Seattle University, the Seattle Mariners, the Seattle Seahawks, or the Seattle Sounders. Not to worry though, if your allegiance belongs to a college or professional team outside of the Seattle or Washington area you are not alone and we cater to your needs as well. Auto Battery Bar currently subscribes to the college Gameplan package on Saturdays and the NFL ticket on Sundays and we have large groups of fans on site every weekend to support teams like the University of Georgia Bulldogs, The University of Oregon Ducks, Greenbay Packers, and the Chicago Bears, just to name a few. As we transition into basketball season, we will most assuredly be adding to our diverse fans.
If watching sports is not your thing, Auto Battery Bar will have something to please you as well. You may enjoy a game of shuffleboard on one of our two very popular full size shuffleboard tables or a game of pool or even
skeeball. We also have a Nintendo Wii for our guests to enjoy. Wireless Internet is always free to our customers. Auto Battery boasts two garage doors at the front of the building that open up to a large patio; great for study sessions with classmates, happy hour drinks with coworkers after a long day in the office, or meeting up with friends on hump day to help energize you to get you through the last half of the week.
Auto Battery Bar is open late every night. We have both an early happy hour that runs from 3pm until 7pm and a late night happy hour that runs from 11pm until 1am. With eight beers on tap, a selection of bottled beers, and a large variety of liquor, you are sure to find something you like. If you are looking for an unleaded drink, we are proud to serve Cafe Vita coffee, hot tea, and a selection of Coca-Cola products, including Mexican Coke and Sprite! PoDog’s gourmet hotdogs are available through Auto Battery during PoDog’s regular business hours.
We are open: Monday – Friday 3pm to 2am, Saturday & Sunday 12pm – 2am
