Butterworth Building, 1921 First Ave.
This cozy Irish pub run by the McAleese family has been a favorite for more than three decades. The building was originally the Butterworth & Sons mortuary (a mortuary purpose-built to handle flood of dead bodies produced by plague, mining accidents and violence in the early 1900s), and Kells is said to be haunted by several ghosts, possibly including a man who got eighty-sixed for shooting a hole in the wall. To ward off the ghosts, the bar is stocked with holy water. Find Kells and its spirits (plus live Irish music every night) tucked away in Pike Place Market's Post Alley, across from the Pink Door.
