Belltown started out as one of Seattle’s earliest neighborhoods, but due to natural land barriers (Denny Hill) and the subsequent mass-removal of those barriers, it had a difficult start. Once the Denny Hill re-grade was complete, however, the Belltown neighborhood quickly became one of the most active communities in the young city. Film factories in the neighborhood brought industry and artists to Belltown, subsequently bringing the cafes, studios, galleries, and theaters that reside there nowadays.
Home to numerous show houses and theaters, bars and clubs, Belltown is now known as one of the best neighborhoods in Seattle to visit if you are looking for an exciting evening of entertainment.
