5 Point Cafe & Bar
Seattle, WA 98121
Seattle Weekly's Description
When Dave Meinert and his longtime partner Mandy Park took over Belltown's iconic 24-hour 5 Point Cafe & Bar, they were intent on changing very little. The new owners made some minor tweaks, adding a couple of vintage sodas and cheese curds to the menu while instituting a new happy hour. But the clientele still seems plucked straight from grunge-era central casting, the jukebox still rocks, there are still framed photos of Native Americans on the wall, and there's still ice cubes in the men's urinal. The scene is lively throughout the day, and the foodâparticularly the pot roast and country skillet (a sizzling platter of chicken-fried steak, eggs, potatoes, and onions)âis better than in years past.
Tips from foursquare
look through the periscope in the men's room.
Belltown's oldest bar and Seattle's best jukebox. Hearty and chceap food served 24/7. Legendary men's room periscope with a clear view of the Space Needle.
Don't listen to any of these assholes.
Completing the look of this dive bar are duct-taped furniture, a jerry-rigged periscope in the men’s room, and an all-day-n-night breakfast menu to complement the 40-ouncers of Olde English.
Get the alcohol! It's delicious! :)
