Built in 1905, the Saint John's apartment building is one of Capitol Hill's oldest treasures. Our house is a very, very, very fine house.

WE'RE OPEN THANKSGIVING DAY AT 4PM FOR FOOD & DRINK!
Instead of England’s early Sunday dinner, a postchurch ordeal of heavy meats and savory pies, why not a new meal, served around noon, that starts with tea or coffee, marmalade and other breakfast fixtures before moving along to the heavier fare? By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.
-Guy Beringer, “Brunch: A Plea,”
Hunter’s Weekly, 1896
The bar menu has something for everyone, with wine and beer as well as clever cocktails, an expansive list of boozy ginger beer concoctions dubbed Mule Variations as well as shot-and-a-beer standards. The food menu, designed by chef Joe Randazzo, offers smart twists on old classics with the St. John’s Burger already creating a buzz of its own. .
After establishing Solo (200 Roy) as a gathering place for actors, artists, theater-goers, musicians, and Lower Queen Anne denizens, Val Kiossovski (known by many as guitarist for acclaimed band Kultur Shock) and Michael Lee (also of local rock outfits The Young Evils and Mal de Mer) began thinking about what might come next. Business partner Lana Kiossovski spearheaded the effort to locate a suitable space, so when news came that 719 East Pike, formerly home of the Rosebud, was available, they knew that the right location had presented itself. Along with rocker Billy Gould (Faith No More), they opened St. John’s Bar and Eatery in February 2012.
Saint John’s is a product of its surroundings — approachable, affordable, and in step with the bustle of Capitol Hill’s arts and music scene. A public house in the truest sense, it offers people a place to meet for a drink or a meal, catch up with friends new and old, and chance upon opportunities for inspiration and collaboration.
Special events, parties, and off & on-site catering are always available.
We are a walk-in restaurant and bar and typically do not take reservations except for special events or private parties.
