History

Established in 1889, the J&M remains a pinnacle in Seattle's long and existing history. Welcome to the oldest and most popular bar in town!

The J&M got its name from partners Jamieson and McFarland, who opened for business in Pioneer Square in 1892. They sold out years later and moved two doors north to its present location at 201 First Ave S. The J & M served as a gambling and dancing establishment for the men of the Gold Rush. Its ceiling is pressed tin, rumored to have been installed by Italian craftsmen. The bar-back is made of Austrian mahogany — transported around the Cape in the late 1890s.

1889: Named the “J & H Hotel building” it was built for Captain J.H. Marshall after the Great Seattle Fire of 1889. Like all the buildings on the block, it housed a business on the ground floor and a hotel on top.

1906 to 1916: It was known as the “J & M Saloon”.

1921: The cafe served “soft drinks” and meals.

1974: The J & M served as the backdrop for a scene in the John Wayne movie, 'McQ'.

1980s: A hydroplane named after the restaurant, the U-9 J&M Café (Wil Muncey) roared briefly on Lake Washington.
