If only the Manette Saloon’s stage could talk, what rock ‘n roll memories it could share. Ever since Rebecca Taylor took charge of the historic eastside tavern in 1996, the wood-paneled Saloon has played host to the likes of some of the northwest’s biggest bands, including MxPx, Magnetic North and Hells Belles. Put simply, if it’s a Bremerton rock show, it’s at the Manette.
Nowhere on the peninsula can you find a more cozy, intimate venue to see not only top-notch musical acts but also take in live sports on the saloon’s projector screen and enjoy other on-stage entertainment, from burlesque shows to trivia nights.
For those just seeking a night out on the town, relax streetside at this epicenter of East Bremerton, the Saloon’s rollup garage door giving you a front row seat to workers and artists of the eclectic Manette neighborhood.
Sip a cocktail or one the Saloon’s extensive selections of northwest microbrews, some of which are so local you won’t find them anywhere else. Nestled within Manette’s rapidly expanding E. 11th Street restaurant district, the saloon’s extensive scratch-cooked pub menu features locally-sourced grass-fed beef hamburgers, savory dishes like its trademark steak mac ‘n cheese, and specials nearly every night of the week.
The saloon is a stone’s throw from downtown Bremerton, just across the Manette Bridge, in the city’s hippest and most vibrant neighborhood. Come in, grab a bar stool, bring a friend, and join the party.
