Flatstick Pub’s winning combination of mini-golf and craft beer is now available in South Lake Union, as the owners, brothers Sam and Andy Largent, have opened their third location. This is the local company’s largest space, covering a whopping 11,000 square feet, and it features a food menu developed by major restaurant group Ethan Stowell Restaurants.
To accompany the games and high-quality local beers and wines, the Largents have a habit of outsourcing their food selection to top-notch local vendors: Their Kirkland original, founded in 2014, serves savory potpies from 314 Pie, while their Pioneer Square address has the wares of Manu’s Tacos, from chef Manu Alfau. The SLU expansion at 609 Westlake Avenue N slings brick-oven pizza, entrees, salads, and bar snacks devised by restaurateur Ethan Stowell.
Many of the pub-grub dishes have golf- or Seattle-themed names, like the Shanker, a salad with tomatoes, kalamata olives, cucumbers, red onions, feta, and herb dressing; the Bogie, a pizza with sausage, pepperoni, olives, and mozzarella; and the Mercer Mess, a plate of salt-and-pepper tater tots topped with bacon, nacho cheese, scallions, and sour cream.
And, because everyone’s a better athlete after an adult beverage or two, the SLU spot has 36 rotating taps for Washington beer and cider, plus wine from Alexandria Nicole Cellars.
In addition to the pizza, other unique elements at the SLU expansion include a new proprietary game and putt-putt holes incorporating the larger-than-life characters from whimsical local muralist Henry. Like the other two Flatstick locations, there is also be a duffleboard course, a Largent-created game combining shuffleboard and mini-golf. It’s all housed in a former Lincoln/Ford car dealership that’s part of the Allen Institute.
