Have a Ball

If you’re in Seattle to cheer on your favorite team, remain near the action of the big game while taking in some of the city’s best places to eat, drink, and play.

Stay close to Seattle’s top-notch sports venues without sacrificing fun and local flavor. At Embassy Suites (255 S King St) near Lumen Field and T-Mobile Park, amble downstairs for a seafood breakfast frittata or a pregame beer at 13 Coins (255 S King St). Or take in the roar of the crowd while lounging in Silver Cloud Hotel – Seattle Stadium’s (1046 First Ave S) rooftop pool. For a mouthwatering brunch, try London Plane (300 Occidental Ave S) in Pioneer Square, then browse the boutiques, galleries, and bookstores in the historic neighborhood. After the game, channel all that adrenaline into a rousing game of indoor mini golf at Flatstick Pub (240 Second Ave).

A few blocks away, in the Chinatown–International District, Hood Famous Cafe + Bar (504 Fifth Ave S) sells sweet Filipino treats and coffee. Peruse crafts by Northwest and Japanese artists at KOBO (604 S Jackson St), dive into a bowl of noodles with a side of soup dumplings at Dough Zone (504 Fifth Ave S #109), or belt out a karaoke tune at Moonwalk (601 S King St). In Queen Anne near Climate Pledge Arena, The Masonry (20 Roy St) pairs wood-fired pizzas with 14 beers on tap, and Citizen Campfire (706 Taylor Ave N) is the perfect outdoor hangout with fire pits, Adirondack chairs, and fusion “Korexican” food.
