  • Firehouse Coffee

    Firehouse Coffee

    There's a kids' play gym next door (Gymboree) which can be handy or noisy, depending on your need or mood. But it's a cozy coffeehouse atmosphere, with reliable sandwiches and tasty pastries. More on Firehouse Coffee »

  • Tula's

    Tula's

    A break from the rowdy Belltown crowd, Tula's is in a pocket of Second Avenue that's a little older and quieter than the slew of neighboring clubs. Live, local and national jazz acts are featured seven nights a week on a large, low stage that... More on Tula's »

  • Mamma Melina Ristorante

Bars & Clubs

  • Bathtub Gin

    Bathtub Gin

    Bathtub Gin is Belltown's version of the Seattle speakeasy. And one nice thing about the city's current trend of tucked-away bars is that every speakeasy does things a little differently. At Bathtub, you don't have to ring any doorbells or get on... More on Bathtub Gin »

  • The Cuff

    The Cuff

    Many gay clubs on Capitol Hill have been infiltrated by heterosexuals in recent years, but The Cuff remains the neighborhood's biggest "bear" bar. Standout features include an S&M sex shop onsite, an enormous dancefloor, and a painting of a lion... More on The Cuff »

  • Conor Byrne

    Conor Byrne

    Narrow bars like the Conor Byrne Pub remind me of train cars. I love walking through the door and having the entire scene stretch out before me. The elaborate bar made of dark wood, the big brick wall, the tiny little stage in the corner, the... More on Conor Byrne »

  • The Pink Door

    The Pink Door

    With its perch above Pike Place Market and a menu studded with salads and risottos, the 30-year old Pink Door has all the trappings of a destination for ladies who lunch. It's pretty tough to beat the outdoor seating at the Pink Door, one of the... More on The Pink Door »

  • Noc Noc

    Noc Noc

    Noc Noc is a hidden gem in a downtown block of Second Avenue. Past the dull, green awning is a lavish, brick, Gothic-inspired interior with high ceilings and a large stone demon overlooking the bar. Noc Noc not only features standard bar... More on Noc Noc »

  • Last Supper Club

    Last Supper Club

    Boom Jinx, Armin van Burren, Lady GaGa - it's evident by the names that have graced the Last Supper Club (124 S. Washington St.) with live performances that the venue is a level above others in the city's limited club scene. Pioneer Square's... More on Last Supper Club »

Food Trucks

  • I Love My GFF

    I Love My GFF

    Situated on the outskirts of the food truck cluster of South Lake Union, the food cart GFF resembles more of a hot dog stand than a bona fide food enterprise. But this cute cart could not be any more different than a hot dog stand. I Love My... More on I Love My GFF »

  • Cheese Wizards

    Cheese Wizards

    At Cheese Wizards, avid sci-fi fans Bo Saxbe and his little brother Tom aren't just strictly relying on cheese to be their focal point. This truck offers a variety of sandwiches with a little bit of sci-fi and fantasy thrown into the mix. The... More on Cheese Wizards »

Coffee Shops

  • Caffe Ladro

    Caffe Ladro

    Ladro has achieved small-chain status, whatever you may think of that. People love their espresso-made from excellent, fairly traded organic Tony's Coffee beans-and desserts, such as berry pies and a superlative carrot cake, are all baked at... More on Caffe Ladro »

    • Stalked by a shape-shifting, DNA-infiltrating alien on their Antarctic base, Kurt Russell and company dissolve into mutual suspicion and distrust. The beast could be inside any of them, so you have to shoot your pal—or incinerate him with a flamethrower—without hesitation to save your own skin. John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing is a reverse guys-on-a-mission flick, where unit cohesion falters and leader turns against crew. It’s morning in America, and utter darkness at the South Pole. The 1951 original came during the Cold War, when sci-fi... More on Egyptian »

    • Mel Brooks' inspired 1974 spoof is probably his best movie, affectionately rooted in the James Whale originals (particularly Bride of Frankenstein) yet knowingly updated with innuendo and vaudeville. Gene Wilder stars as the reluctant mad scientist who's determined not to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. The great Madeline Kahn plays his fiancée, destined to end up with quite another man (er, monster, played by Peter Boyle). Marty Feldman is the goggle-eyed hunchback. Wilder and Brooks are both credited with the script, which includes... More on Egyptian »
