Happy Hour Monday through Thursday 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Friday and Saturday 4:00pm - 9:00pm
Bar Last Call 9:45 pm

The Athenian was first opened by three Greek brothers, about 1909. Starting out as a bakery and a luncheonette, it was one of the first restaurants in Seattle to be issued a liquor license, for beer, in 1933. The sign over the front door is the original one, hung there over a half century ago.

From a bakery to a tavern and then to a restaurant, the Athenian’s story is typical of the growth opportunity of our country. Throughout it’s history in the Pike Place Market, the Athenian has been the crossroads of people from all over the world and a haven for those who have found their homes and futures in the Great Northwest.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your meal and that you will come back often to enjoy the wide variety of delicious food and beverages we offer.
