Jules Maes Saloon returns from the dead.
SEATTLE – Jules Maes Saloon served their first drink in 1888, and it looked like they had served their last in 2020. But Raché Hemmelgarn had a different plan.
“This is my favorite bar to come over,” Hemmelgarn said.
She already had a bar in Kent. But Hemmelgarn felt a sentimental attachment to this place that claims to be Seattle’s oldest tavern and was once a speakeasy. A place with so much history, you can see it in the worn footrests and a bar top shaped by a century of resting forearms. This is the place where the love affair between her and her husband began.
“The bar we had on our first date,” she said.
