About The Old Pequliar

Local Ballard Irish Pub

For almost 30 years The Old Pequliar has been known as a great local Ballard Irish Pub and gathering spot. Serving great local Craft Beers, simple but good Pub Grub, and one of the best pints of Guinness this side of the Atlantic.

A great place for a quick pint or meeting friends. We also show many sporting events with the NFL and NHL Ticket for every game. We’re very proud to be a sponsor of Seattle Rugby with every game shown on our many big screens.

Whether you are out for a beer and a chat with our friendly staff, a game of Pool or Darts, or to make new friends or see old ones we will make you feel welcome and at home.

Our motto has always been

“You might enter as a stranger but you leave as a friend.”
