Go to Balmar and get the lamb sliders.
Pre-prohibition style cocktails with modern twists. The staff is super personable and are more than willing to help you with drink selection and education. Come in during the week. Weekends are silly.
The best place in Ballard to see and be seen! Some of the best Mac and Cheese you will ever find and a great atmosphere to sip drinks and relax or hit the dance floor with live DJs Friday & Saturday n
Upstairs dance floor can be fun but beware: people are way too casual about ripping farts... You've been warned.
Some of the best drinks in Ballard! Plus a great 4sq Day sponsor!
Mac and cheese with the fried onions OMG
the mac and cheese is the epic noms
The dj on Saturday night is super bad. Super bad and not in a good way.
$5 to go upstairs to dance- why???
Our waitress, Alicia, was awesome. The busser, whose name I didn't catch, was very entertaning. The bartender, Justin, however was neither...to put it nicely.
The bartenders are slow to respond but the drinks are well-priced and the food is awesome.
Come here early or on a weeknight. It's way too loud, way too packed and takes way to long to order drinks.
Come for th silly line you have to stand in to then shout at your friends to have a convo.
Don't come here on the weekend. It's Monday night, happy hour all night, amazing bar tender (Kate), incredible cocktails. We accounted for 50% of the entire guests. Ballard is worthless on weekends.
This place is full of rapists on the weekend - the DJ who assaults my ears and the single white people who commit violence against my retinas by creepily grinding on the dance floor.
This place is like THE one to avoid at all costs. Bad service, and almost got to call the cops to have our cards back.
Got a section reserved and received easily some of the worst service in my life. They screwed up all our drinks and it took an hour to get one. Unbelievable.
Super creative and fun drinks! Try a cocktail! Avoid the frittata. Flavorless.
Happy hour food and drinks all day every Monday!!
Excellent food at great prices!!
I would recommend reserving a table ahead of time.
Come Sunday-Thursday. Rad cocktails.
Ask Justin about his Philosophy cucumbers.
Artichoke cheese balls!
Really? They make you pay a $5 cover to go upstairs. They weren't doing that a year ago.
Zero ventilation, fire code hazard.
So now that I waited in line outside, I'm now waiting in line inside to go upstairs where my friends already have a table??? Why would I ever do this again?
The napkins embody the brand: luxe.
Another vote for the mac and cheese. Their whole happy hour menu is full of win.
really bad Sylvester stallone pick up lines. ewwwwㅋ
