With one of the coolest atmospheres in Seattle, Matador is one of my favorite places to go to eat and/or drink. The decor and mood are perfect for a rainy Seattle day. In addition most of the locations have outdoor seating for those rare occasions when the mysterious yellow orb is shining brightly in the sky.

Neighborhood/s: Ballard, West Seattle

Food: Matador’s happy hour food is totally fantastic!  For $4-$5 you can get Nachos, Spicy Fried Calamari, or my personal favorite: the Tex Mex Spring Rolls..mmmm..delicious Tex Mex in my mouth.

Drinks: This category is unfortunately, where Matador falls short. They do NOT offer discounted drinks on their happy hour special. This is a double bummer because the drinks are strong and supple (I don’t know how that word can be used to describe a beverage, but we’ll go with it).  The margaritas are margarita-licious. If only they knocked off a buck or two for happy hour, then I would be in HH heaven.

Atmosphere: Super sexy and fun.

Service: Great

The Happiest Hours: 4pm to 6pm and  10pm to 1am SEVEN DAYS A WEEK

Website (watch out–it has noises):

Like a bull I would charge this locale daily if only the drinks were marked down at happy hour. I give it a rating of 4 olives.
