This is where you take your loud, football-obsessed uncle who wears an oversized jersey and drinks likes he’s 21 (but he’s 50). The space is narrow and covered in sports memorabilia, and you either sit at the bar or venture upstairs to stand at a table near a makeshift bar. Sluggers gets rowdy, but that’s also part of the appeal. This is one of the better ways to watch football in Seattle, and if you can’t take all the noise, just bring a set of earplugs.
