We came upon Shorty's completely by accident, but so glad we did! We sat at the front bar and ordered up a drink...pretty good pricing for hard booze. Took a walk around to check the place out and discovered a back lounge...it was fantastic! Some very neat and comfy bar stools and great bartenders. A very unique atmosphere and a lot of fun pinball games and video games that remind us of our younger days. Definitely worth checking out!

PINBALL, sassy waitresses, cheap booze, arcade machines, and a realy cool vintage lounge in the back, absolute heaven for twenty-somethings. I bought a TSHIRT. The food is not great, eat somewhere else and go here for some FUN! GP, trust me on this one!!!

My fiance and I were on a trip to Seattle and were looking for something to do on a Friday night. We were staying in Belltown, so we were looking for something within walking distance. The club scene really isn't our thing, so we passed by the bars charging a cover. We also came upon a great jazz club--jazz is our scene, but a $15 cover is not. A couple doors down was Shorty's, so we thought we'd go in. We each got a local beer and were just going to sit in the bar until we realized they had a room full of pinball machines! What a find! Shorty's knows what they are doing, sell you beer and tempt you with pinball! We had such a great time. Next time we're in Seattle we'll definitely come back!

i had a veggie dog last nite and was completely dissapointed.it was under cooked and had way too much relish.in laymans terms it was gross.i couldnt even eat it all.food aside the service was horrible.snooty stuck up bar tenders with a im more punk than thou attitude.even after more than generous tips i still got dirty looks and less than hospitable comments.
