Score a touchdown with these family-approved venues for watching the home team
Seahawks fans come in all ages, and while it can be fun to have people over to watch the game at your home, if you’ve got a whole family full of football fanatics—little ones included—getting out to celebrate our hometown team can be a fun treat. Finding a kid-friendly spot that is also fun for the adults can be tough, so we rounded up some of the best options for you. Take your pick and go Hawks!
This vintage theater near Capitol Hill shows the games on the big screen for free—no tickets needed! With waiter service and sofa seating, it’s a popular choice for all ages, so we suggest showing up early to make sure you get a seat. One you’ve settled in, treat yourself to pizza or their organic popcorn with real butter. Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave., 98122.
McMenamins Anderson School
The Woodshop at the Anderson School in Bothell is fully equipped for Seahawks Sundays with flat screen televisions, shuffleboard, pinball games, pool tables and delicious pub fare. Kids are welcome (although they can’t sit in the bar area) and will have fun playing games in between touchdowns. Make a whole day of the trip and stop by the saltwater swimming pool on the grounds before the game. McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Ave NE, Bothell 98011.
Sport Restaurant and Bar
This spot in Fisher Plaza is a mecca for sports fans of any age. There are no fewer than 33 televisions—including screens in the dining room booths—so everyone will have a good view of the action. Kids can check out the sports memorabilia in between plays and the menu is extensive—everything from nachos and pizza to chowder and chili. There are even gluten free options. Sport Restaurant and Bar, 140 4th Ave N., Seattle 98109.
Bellevue Brewing Company
A family-friendly taproom on the Eastside, Bellevue Brewing Company is a locally owned craft brewery with great food. There are always plenty of families and kids running around the roomy and casual spot, and the game isn’t shown on just small televisions—there is a large screen projecting all the football fun, too. It’s a great spot for large parties—consider getting one of the private rooms with a couple families for some extra fun. Bellevue Brewing Company, 1820 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005.
If you are lucky enough to have tickets to a home game, there are more kid-friendly options for catching the action live and in person.
Open to all fan three hours before each home game, Touchdown City is inside of the CenturyLink Field and Event Center and boasts interactive games, contests, airbrush tattoos, hair painting, food and more. Admission is free and if you time it right, you may catch a glimpse of mascots Blitz and Boom, or a performance by the SeaGals.
Hawk Alley Tailgate
Older kids will really enjoy seeing the fans and setup at the Hawk Alley Tailgate. This premier tailgate spot is a friendly combination of three of the biggest tailgates coming together—Hawk One, The Beast Bus and the Blue Line Express. There is music, food, drinks and even a tricked out RV with autographed memorabilia and flat screen televisions showing ESPN. Proceeds from the tailgate go to local charities including Ben’s Fund for autism awareness.
Wherever you decide to celebrate football season in Seattle, go Hawks!
