Belltown is known for it’s nightlife, so it’s fun when we get a new spot for cocktails and bar bites! We have two new bars in Belltown; Jupiter Bar opens on Thursday, September 14th and Commonwealth opened earlier this month.
Jupiter Bar has taken over an old warehouse for jewelry manufacturing at 2126 2nd Avenue, between Whiskey Bar and Blank Space Cafe near the colorful Belltown Corridor. The classic bar offering of beer and cocktails will be supplemented by a menu that focuses on oven-baked sandwiches. There will be dozens of games including pinball, pool, and arcade. Jupiter will be more than just a bar to augment Belltown’s nightlife – it’s also a gallery showcasing the work of over 18 artists. The grand opening is from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. this Thursday.
Commonwealth is the latest offering from the folks behind Pintxo, which recently moved locations within the neighborhood. The new bar is located in the Bell Street alley between 3rd and 4th Avenues. Commonwealth is focused on whiskey, with Kentucky-inspired drinks and bites. There are several whiskey cocktails, beer and cider on draft, and a fun Boilermaker list to get more adventurous about your beverage. In the way of food, there’s a distinct Spanish influence from the bar’s older sibling, Pintxo.
