Umi Sake House
Location: 1st and Bell
Umi Sake House has been a local favorite for years. Anything you order you will love (guaranteed!) but some special recommendations are: salmon don bowl, lucky leprechaun roll (vegetarian), crunchy cali roll, sashimi. They also have a large library of international Sake, for your enjoyment. Also, if you are trying to save some money but still feel the urge to go out, Umi has both regular and late night happy hour! (Sunday-Friday 4-6, and Sunday-Friday 11pm-2am)
Genre: Spanish Tapas
Location: 2nd and Blanchard
Pintxo is the perfect restaurant for a fun date night! The space is small, but intimate with their house sangria being perfectly on point! Some signature plates include chicken skewers, lamb sliders, and the bacon wrapped dates. Walk-ins are welcome but reservations are recommended after 6pm.
Location: 2nd and Blanchard (it’s the upstairs part of Pintxo)
The Upstairs is a great spot to meet a friend or two for drinks and still have great conversation without straining your voice. They also serve a wonderful paella; a signature dish native to Spain. The Upstairs also has an extensive cocktail menu. Not seeing something your in the mood for? Just have a chat with the bartender and they can make you something special!
Location: 1st and Wall
Hands down, Belltown’s best location for summer weather dining! Innkeeper has one of the best kept secrets in town: their outdoor patio. If you enjoy dining outdoors when Seattle weather permits, definitely give the back outdoor patio a try. In the summer months, beautiful Italian lights are hung that give it a romantic feel. Here, you can enjoy a refreshing Moscow mule (their most popular drink)! You may also indulge by ordering their oysters during happy hour or their Cuban pork sandwich. We cannot recommend this restaurant enough! Dogs are also allowed indoors and outdoors!
Location: Alleyway behind 1st and Wall (directly behind Innkeeper)
Probably the most popular bar in Belltown, Bathtub Gin gives you a unique experience. As it is a speakeasy, it is not your typical bar. Enjoy a drink by the fire, or converse with your friends in the downstairs library. Bathtub Gin is the perfect spot if you want to experience something special. They also have a carefully curated scotch collection. Unfortunately, because of its high demand, there will be a wait for a seat on weekends any time after 6, so get there early, or be in the right mindset for waiting at the door to get in.
Location: 1st and Wall
The same owners as Innkeeper. Hip atmosphere with a unique Seattle vibe. The Calamari is highly recommended paired along with a nice glass of chardonnay!
Genre: Dive Bar
Location: 2nd and Bell
Like pinball? If the answer is yes, then Shorty’s is the place for you! This is one of Seattle’s best dive bars. It’s incredibly casual, low key, and has a large collection of vintage pinball machines that are all in working order. Come prepared with quarters! But if not, the bartenders are prepared to give change. This is the perfect spot for celebrating birthdays, and if you happen to get hungry with all of that pinball playing, Shorty’s just happen to make some of the best hot dogs in town!
