The Gerald

The Gerald is a restaurant/bar located in the heart of the Ballard Historic District.

Featuring classic, hand-crafted cocktails & comfort foods with a modern twist, The Gerald invites you to unwind in their"easy-on-the-eyeballs & quick-with-the-highballs" mid-century modern-inspired space.

Think Gourmet Mac & Cheese; Truffle Popcorn; a Grilled Cheese menu featuring local cheeses & flavor pairings; Sliders; Deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie; and Bacon-Wrapped.....well...ANYTHING! (WHAT isnt' d'lish wrapped in bacon!?!)

Think nostalgic cocktails of yesteryear - Sloe Gin Fizz; Singapore Slings; Sidecars; Gimlets; Highballs; & more!

At The Gerald, your drink can be half full or half empty – as long as there’s booze in it. :)

It's raining cats & dogs let our cats & dogs pour you a Halloween libation. Cheers!!
