Don’t be sad that summer is coming to a close… it just means that it’s football season again! Time to dust off your 12th Man jerseys and get ready to root on our hometown heroes. The Seattle Seahawks are back in action for what’s shaping up to be another winning season, and the Ballard neighborhood is ready for it. Here are four great places to catch a Hawks game, all within a short walk from Hotel Ballard.

Ballard Loft | 5015 Ballard Ave NW

The Loft is always the place to be for a sporting event. Whether the game is during brunch or dinner hour, there are plenty of football-watching foods to choose from on the extensive menu. If you’re going to the game, arrive in style with the Loft’s Seahawks Party Bus, where your group will get breakfast and a round-trip transportation to/from Century Link Field!

Bad Albert’s Tap & Grill | 5100 Ballard Ave NW

Root on the Hawks with a great view from every seat in the house at Bad Albert’s. Take advantage of happy hour on Sundays from 3-11pm for half off appetizers and drink specials throughout the game.

Kangaroo & Kiwi | 2026 NW Market St

Seattle’s bar from the land down under doesn’t just show rugby games. Gather your crew for the Kangaroo & Kiwi’s American football Tailgate Parties. Watch the game inside the bar or outside on the patio with a BBQ, yard games, prizes, giveaways, and drink specials.

Hotel Ballard | 5216 Ballard Ave NW

Avoid the 12th Man crowds and watch the game from your hotel room! Snuggle up in your cozy suite and relax with room service. Sometimes it’s just better to have a lazy Sunday watching football in bed.

Go Hawks!
