Belltown Billiards marries chic Mediterranean cuisine with a hip downtown pool lounge. The upscale hangout accommodates groups from 4 to 40 friends, who can snack on opulent edibles and duel one another with pool cues atop two of Belltown's eight custom-built Brunswick billiards tables, which partiers can also play pool on. Chef Nico's menu brims with upscale fare that groups can nosh on between rounds. Afterward, they can grab libations from a pair of beverage-rich bars or look for new friends on the happening dance floor. Moody lighting casts a soft glow on the stylish, party-friendly clientele, creating a milieu that Belltown's website claims received praise from the New York Times and the Seattle Times.
The large-party food list is based on 40 attendees. The amount of food served will be scaled down for smaller groups.
Belltown Billiards stepped up the nightlife game by blending a pool hall with a sleek, modern lounge. Stripes and solids roll atop eight custom-designed Brunswick pool tables, above which curved, industrial-style awnings arc like wings. Nearby, black leather couches in the lounge give onlookers a comfortable spot to watch games or the cue-twirling victory dances that follow them. Bartenders also pour out a selection of beers, cocktails, and wines from a neon-lit bar.
The onsite kitchen, helmed by a professional chef, makes Mediterranean-inspired entrees with fresh, local ingredients from nearby Pike Place Market. Small groups can order apps such as bruschetta or pork sliders from the à la carte regular menu. Thin-crust pizzas and buffet-style meals from the large-party menu cater to crews of up to 400. Belltown Billiards also hosts regular public events, and DJs spin dance beats every night.
