Belltown

A confluence of nightlife, creative eats, and culture.

EAT

Local 360 Photo: Olivia Brent

Start your day at Macrina Bakery (2408 First Ave) with a perfect croissant-dough morning roll. For lunch, crisp crusts and elevated toppings like truffle cheese and seasonal mushrooms define Serious Pie’s* (316 Virginia St) delicious pizzas. Local 360 * (2234 First Ave) is the place to sample a larger menu made almost exclusively from ingredients found within 360 miles of Seattle. Shiro Kashiba himself may have moved on from Shiro’s (2401 Second Ave), but his protégés continue to put out impressive sushi. Head to No Anchor* (2505 Second Ave, Ste 105) for a curated list of unusual beers you’re unlikely to find elsewhere in Seattle or to sibling tiki bar Navy Strength* (2505 Second Ave, Ste 102A) next door for excellent tropical cocktails.

SHOP

If you’re in the market for women’s clothing, hit up Endless Knot (2300 First Ave) for lovely fashion staples and Sassafras* (2307 First Ave) for one-of-a-kind Seattle-made pieces that’ll freshen up a wardrobe. Kuhlman (2419 First Ave) offers timeless, upscale clothing for men and women. There’s a different kind of nostalgia to peruse at Singles Going Steady (2219 Second Ave), which is packed full of vinyl, VHS, cassettes, and other bygone media.

PLAY

Cinerama Courtesy Rudy Willingham

Don’t miss wandering through Olympic Sculpture Park* (2901 Western Ave)–for once, the views of the Olympic Mountains won’t be the main attraction. Catch some world-class tunes at Tula’s Jazz Club (2214 Second Ave) or The Crocodile (2200 Second Ave). And Cinerama* (2100 Fourth Ave) is a must, with its state-of-the-art technology, cushy seats, historic film props, and chocolate popcorn. Anything that’s showing will be a treat.
