Tiny and delicious sliders are a fun happy hour treat that can also make a great meal. The mini-nature of sliders has inspired many a chef (and fledgling foodies) to get creative with toppings and mini-burger themes. The following spots around Seattle are great places to enjoy some yummy sliders!
Art Marble 21 | 731 Westlake Ave N | 206-223-0300
Happy Hour: Daily, 4 - 6 p.m.
In addition to a wide range of games that people can play free on a first-come, first-served basis, Art Marble 21 has dozens of shareable snacks for happy hour and beyond. Choose any two sliders from the options of BBQ pork, jerk chicken and portabella for just $6 during Happy Hour, or splurge a little more for the agave marinated grilled chicken or beef sliders (three for $10.50, served with classic or sweet potato fries).
