On Ballard's busiest block, King's Hardware might be the busiest stop of all. The bar is giant, with quirky taxidermy on one wall and skeeball up against another. The outdoor patio is a little quieter than the main room, but both buzz with a young crowd after the sun goes down. Beer comes in pints or pitchers, and bottled cocktails are made in-house. A well-loved menu ranges from staples (wedge salad) to the more inventive—peanut butter and bacon sandwich, anyone?
