Fun & Pool at "The Art Marble 21" Our Top Spot! - A Business Review

The Art Marble 21 is the beautifully remodeled restaurant and bar in a picturesque location in downtown Seattle at the southwest corner of Lake Union. It caters to sports enthusiasts, game players and food connoisseurs as well as offering spectacular views.  On Westlake Ave in the South Lake Union district they have really outstanding food & beverages in a friendly place staffed with good people. It is my favorite place to spend time while soaking in a picturesque view of South Lake Union.

The newly renovated building games area has several 9-foot pool tables. a full size indoor boche ball court, a giant Jenga game, pop-a-shot basketball, Nascar raciong, skee ball, ping pong and shuffle board.  Right now, during their Grand Opening, they have a "life should be fun so play-for free" attitude.  Thanks Art Marbkle 21!

The restaurant is equipped with several private rooms with that cater to corporate events, private parties and weddings. It seems to becoming a real hot spot for parties. The bar area includes several big screen TVs fopr sports fans. The classic stylings with classic furniture bring that nice touch to a beautiful location.

Last time I was there I had the Parkside Pecan Salad which was excellent accompanied with a cold beverage. Both were good on that hot day. The salad is a great combination of nuts and sweet dried cranberries with a light oil based dressing. With a view of the park and Lake Union, and the company of a few friends playing one-pocket billiards it was a great time had by all. The menu is limited but most of the choices seem pretty good.  The Quesadillas are very good and the nachos are good but hot, and messy. They have several good beer, wine and drink choices.

This is the best place in Seattle for pool. Come here to meet with friends, learn more about the game of billiards and test your skills. It is also known internationally for its regulation size snooker table upstairs, it also has plenty of nine foot tables. Learn how to play 8-ball, 9-ball or straight pool three fun games that work on different shooting strengths and strategy. If you’re a thinker, learn about one-pocket (known as chess on a pool table) from the regulars.

There is plenty of parking located to the North of the building by the waterfront at the end of South Lake Union. There you pay until 4pm, and there is street parking adjacent to the building on the east and the west streets where currently you have to pay till 6pm.

Here is a ink to the Art Marble 21 website for more information.

Accessibility Rating: Average. Handicap access has gGame of one-pocket billiardsotten better after completion of the construction on Westlake Ave, but handicap parking on the street is limited.  The west entrance grants wheelchair accessibility and there is an elevator in the building to reach the second floor.
