Foursquare Tips

  • Go to Balmar and get the lamb sliders.
  • 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
  • Cool interior. Nice place to tuck away for a drink.
  • The dj on Saturday night is super bad. Super bad and not in a good way.
  • The cocktails are great, but the beer list is equally impressive
  • $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 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
  • The bartenders are slow to respond but the drinks are well-priced and the food is awesome.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Crowded, but good drinks. DJ was really lazy, more of a jukebox than anything.
  • Decent drinks. Come here if you like dancing while being watched by security guards.
  • 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.
