Humuhumu’s description

No Bones Beach Club opened in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle in early 2016, after a few successful years operating as a food truck. The menu is all vegan, and 2% of proceeds are donated to animal welfare causes. Tiki drinks are served in tiki and tropical mugs. Brunch is served on weekends.
The walls are lined with bamboo and lauhala matting, with thatch overhead, and colorful outdoor light lanterns hang above. There are animal sculptures, made from driftwood. A large tiki with a pineapple atop its head greets you at the front of the restaurant.

When is a tiki bar not really a tiki bar? When it is a vegan restaurant disguised as a tiki bar. Vegan? Aha! That explains the "No Bones" of the name. The "Beach Club" aspect is a cool gimmick of sorts to lure in the adventurous ...and the unsuspecting.

But there also IS a bar and they DO serve cocktails. Whoo hoo! The decor was fun, but a bit cheesy (not very vegan of them--Ha!), The food was fine (The strange part was reading the menu and trying to imagine tofu (blah!) taking the place of a hamburger or fried chicken. I remember opting for the "clam chowder" with mushroom bits cleverly substituting for the clams. Not bad!). I would gladly go back.

For a closer look at the place (and other tiki-esque joints in the Seattle area), please feel free to visit my blog here:

I like this place, but let me be clear: Not a tiki bar. The only thing tiki we saw were the 2' high tiki heads holding the doors open, and they were facing into the doors so you couldn't see them, and they were pretty beat up. As a beach club, which is really more what this is, it's fantastic. Definitely hits that vibe of a little shack on the beach selling good food.

And let me tell you, it is REALLY good food. Like so good. I've been vegetarian/pescetarian on and off, but I also eat meat these days. The food was so good, you didn't know that anything was missing meat. I'm still drooling over remembering what we had. Everything was delicious.

The drinks though… I'm used to a tiki drink that has all the alcohol in it; these aren't those drinks. At least ours weren't. The selection is very tiny, they're only okay (Mai Tai was nothing to write home about), and for the prices, I expected more alcohol, but it is Seattle, so maybe I shouldn't have? Every other tiki bar I've been to though has had similar prices but twice the alcohol in the drinks.

Bottom line? Go for the food, so worth it. Probably don't plan on staying for the drinks. Bartender we chatted with was very nice, but imo overworked, even in such a tiny space. Our waitress was also very nice and attentive.
