Belltown Seattle is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in all of Seattle stretching from Westlake Center up to Denny way and from Interstate 5 to the water. Belltown is also one of the most popular neighborhoods with trendy nightclubs, unique museums, fantastic condominiums and a wealth of eclectic nightlife.
Nestled between the Retail Core and Seattle Center, Belltown imposes a hip, contemporary and modern collection of dives, unique boutiques, pool halls and cafés. For years city officials have envisioned multiple ideas for Belltown including a working-class neighborhood to residential high-rise districts. However, today it remains an eclectic blend of all of these venues in amongst urban coffee shops, hotspot diners and multiple entertainment in theater options.
"Belltown is my favorite neighborhood in Seattle. It is closed all the good bars and restaurants with the beautiful water nearby and great sites, like the space needle and the boardwalk. This area is hard to beat." TripAdvisor
