Flatstick Pub, known for a focus on local beer and cider paired with indoor interactive games like mini-golf and a proprietary combination of shuffleboard and mini-golf called “Duffleboard,” is building out its third and largest location yet in South Lake Union. The new outpost will also offer an expanded food menu, a brand-new game, and even some outdoor space.
No word yet on the exact menu offerings, but Flatstick owners Sam and Andy Largent have good taste: Their second putt-putt emporium, which opened underground in 2016 in Pioneer Square, has 37 taps of Washington-only brews plus tacos from Manu Alfau (Manu’s Bodega). Their original spot, in Kirkland, similarly boasts 27 Washington pours and savory potpies from 314 Pie.
The newest Flatstick is taking up residence at 609 Westlake Ave N, inside an 11,000-square-foot former auto showroom that’s now part of the Allen Institute. The Largents are keeping many of the original building elements in their new construction. The opening is projected for spring, though an exact date hasn’t been finalized.
