located relatively close to my abode, just off of 85th
pretty big interior, long bar, multiple rooms and lots of tables.
there seemed to be a heavy dosage of UW students in the room late on a Friday evening.
solid tap selection - lots of rotation too and their twitter feed dilligently updates every move in real time. I decided to see how bad the Deschutes Stoic really was while my gf opted for a goblet of damnation. There were other interesting guest taps as well - anacortes, cascade, lost abbey, etc.
They brew their own beer too, which has mixed reviews - I'll check that out next time.

Boy was I glad I visited this place. A film I am of film noir of the 50's and now a fan of their beer. Service was excellent and got to meet the owner who said they were coming out with a "Dude" flavored beer. Beers were solid to mostly great. I really liked their IPAs in particular and wish I had a chance to taste some of their seasonal offerings. One of the best places I visited in Seattle period. I need to get back.

Among Seattle's handful of neighborhood brewpubs, Naked City is easily the smallest. Beers originate on a tiny 3 1/2-bbl brew system at the rear of the bar. Thus far, only four of their two-dozen taps are reserved for house beers, and it's clear that these former homebrewers are still adapting their recipes and technique. Even so, Naked City's guest taps embody a choice array of craft beers, favoring west coast innovators from Alaska to San Diego, and guarantee a contented session. What's more, their taplist is posted on their reliably up-to-date website so you can peruse before visiting. A menu of distinguished bottled imports is also available.
Food leaps imaginatively beyond ordinary barfare to include pickled hop shoots, white truffle pâté and Italian bresaola. (Having googled it, I now know that bresaola is a dried, salted beef.) These are just some of the appetizers. The core menu consists of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Prices are high relative to value.
The bar has a decidedly urban configuration in that it is long and skinny and roughly aligned as a trident. One tine is the bar, another a counter, a third comprises a kid-friendly seating area. The room is candle lit and a bit dark and service can be challenging on crowded nights. But as a beer bar, Naked City is easily one of the best in Seattle. I remain hopeful about eventual improvements in their own beers.

Nice vibe, open bar area with plenty of seating even on a busy Friday night, they also had games to play while enjoying a beer.
Quality was very good. I had a pretty tasty Black IPA that was brewed on site, plus an excellent Scotch Ale from Port Townsend.
Service was good, quite adequate.
Selection was well above average. 4 or 5 on site brews, and about 20 high quality guest beers.
We had a nice appetizer plate, it hit the spot, and turned out to be a nice late night snack.
Prices were fair, and about right for the area.
Overall, a very nice addition to the Seattle beer scene.

Went to this Greenwood neighborhood joint because they were hosting a Dogfish Head tasting as part of Seattle Beer Week. The place is fairly non-descript, inside and out--long hall, bar, tables, chalkboard, everthing you'd need, not cold but nothing interesting either. Service was good but short and brusque--our guy was particularly "New York" if you know what I mean. Efficient, even had deep knowledge of beer, just wasn't overly welcoming. Not a problem.
They had JUST tapped the kegs as we sat at our table--a friend had Burton's Baton, I had the Palo Santo Marron, and they were absolutely delicious. Probably goes without saying, but they were indeed superior to their bottled counterparts. Finished with glasses of aged Fort, which was a real treat, and even more satisfying than when it was fresh (if memory serves, that was a few years ago...) A Dogfish Head rep came around to the tables, and he was informative, happy to answer questions, apparently having an excellent time. Nice guy.
Seemed to have a pretty good tap list beyond the special Dogfish Head stuff, lots of bottles too, focused on Pacific Northwest/West Coast brews and Belgians. Naked City was my first and so far only Seattle beer experience, and the DFH tasting was a great occasion with which to kick off a vacation.

I finally got to visit NC, but they weren't yet open for the day. Fortunately, I was with someone who knew the owner and we got in and had a quick tour of the brewhouse.
I checked the taplist and was certainly impressed, a wide variety of house, local, regional, national and international brews. I didn't eat but the menu looked solid and the cook I chatted with seemed to care about what he does.
Of course, given the circumstances, the service was spectacular and I enjoyed being a QC assistant for the day. Overall, I look forward to going to NC when they up and running. I'll update my review at that time.

I went to Naked City with my wife yesterday for the first time. I've been itching to go there for awhile, now.
It's a decent, straightforward bar setting. It's clean and laid out pretty well, and there are games and things available to help you kill the time while quaffing some brews. Of these there is a very good selection on-tap and in cans or bottles. The on-tap selection seems to center around Pacific Northwest brews, which I appreciate. Their selection also includes a half-dozen in-house brews, all of which I look forward to sampling in the future.
Service was good, although the place was pretty empty when we were there. Food is decent if unspectacular; the menu is rather small but has some tasty options and some vegetarian items.
I definitely plan on heading back to Naked City again soon.

Good vibe. Good service. The food is reasonable. There’s a very nice selection of beer on tap. This brewpub puts out their own beers as well as putting on some very good taps from the area and the region. Very good spot to check out, the Greenwood area is pretty saturated with good beer spots.

I've been here a few times as my sis lives jsut down the road from them; the atmosphere is kind of like coffee house meets old school bar. Paintings of random boobs and other female nudity in abstract constantly cover the walls and are for sale, track lighting illuminates artwork and sets mood lighting. Brewery is in the back, you can glimpse the fermenters if you take the back tables. Daytime the place is pretty open as far as seating, nightime the place crowds up a bit. Plenty of taps, both brewed on premise and local/national micros. A nice bottle selection as well, just ask them. Food is great and they have a nice vegetarian section-- try the BBQ Field Roast sandwich even if you eat meat, it is effin awesome. They have pickled hop shoots for appetizers, watch out they are pungently spiced and a little goes a long way! Service is great, fast and friendly, and they are patient with your stupid beer geek hemming and hawing and indecisiveness. PTE is on tap there frequently as are some other greats. I don't know what other praise I can give for this place....wait....never mind- you do not want to go there. No, in fact it is bad, stay away and don't crowd the place! It's bad I tells ya! Stay away from my precious!
