Not really looking for chow, more drinks, but if the place served some food it would be a plus. Looking for a bar to go to with some people after class next weekend. So, a place where we can maybe hear our conversation, but not morgue-like. We're really near 3rd and Bell and I know there are about 5 bars just south of Mama's. Would any of those joints be cool? My impression of Belltown is that it is a single's bar area, which isn't what we are looking for--but I may be out of touch. Ambiance like Smith, or Barca on Capitol Hill would be nice. Just don't know the area well (plus, I don't go out as much these days... clearly). Thanks!
