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.
