We couldn’t have picked a better neighborhood to be in. 2nd Ave. in Belltown is full of some of the most fantastic places to eat, drink and socialize. When we are not at Pintxo, here are some of the places we love to be:
The Coterie Room – the third restaurant and fine dining establishment of Dana Tough and Brian McCracken (Spur Gastropub and Tavern Law) is right across Blanchard from Pintxo. We love their world encompassing wine list, family style dining, and amazing living wall.
Clever Bottle – directly across 2nd Ave from Pintxo is our home away from home. Kristen Burns, the proprietor and almost-always-there bartender created a low lit, perfectly decorated, locally sourced bar nearly 3 years ago. We love their Market Plate and goat cheese truffles and huge list of unique and crafted cocktails.
Bedlam Coffee – remember what coffee shops were like in the 90′s? Free spirited places to hear music, read used books and create ideas? That is Bedlam Coffee. They take their coffee seriously (Some of the most delicious we’ve had in a while) but they make sure you don’t feel out of place. We love to stop in for a game of cards and neighborhood chat. They also have over-the-top-delicious fresh baked pies, cookies and cakes.
The Rendezvous – The once dive bar of 2nd Ave. has been re-created (nearly 15 years ago) into the magical old-Hollywood-inspired dinner, drink and entertainment spot. We love their fish and chips, BBQ burger and meat loaf. You can check out music and live performances any night of the week. Our favorite is a modern urban take on The Match Game.
