J&M Cafe and Cardroom
Seattle’s Oldest Bar
The J&M got its name from partners Jamieson and McFarland, who opened for business in Pioneer Square in 1892. It 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.
In 1974 The J & M served as the backdrop for a scene in the John Wayne movie, ‘McQ’.
