Pin Ball Wizards are in heaven here... 3/28/2011

I rolled in here on a Friday night with 2 buddies and we played some pin ball - with the low score buying the pitcher of beer..... needless to say it was a fun few hours playing old school pin ball more

GLOBAL CHILI DOG AFICIANADO HQ (but they will make you poop) 10/26/2010

Don't even think about it, just go to Shorty's the next time you find yourself hammered drunk at 2 am in Belltown and order a Chili Cheese BigTop with extra nacho cheese, onions and jalapenos. They are delicious! \r \r Shorty's has THE BEST 2 am Chili Dog in the city.\r \r Before you dine in Vienna beef Valhalla do understand that you will seriously regret the decision to eat a Chili Cheese BigTop the next day (sometimes sooner) but in my opinion the minor gastrointestinal pain and eminent BigTop colonic are well worth it.\r \r Chili Cheese BigTops are so awesome that the IRS doesn't require Shorty's to pay taxes, that's why the bar is cash only and so the owners can further reap profits off unnecessarily inflated ATM fees on your drunk-ass. \r \r That's how powerful the global economy of chili dogs is - deal with it. \r more

Pinball Madness 4/22/2010

Great dive bar in the heart of Belltown. Shorty's is all about clowns and pinball. One of my fave hideouts in Belltown. This place is totally strange in all the best ways. There is creepy carnival music playing in the bathroom, and hot dogs with all the toppings you could want. The main draw for me is the well stocked bar and the games. They have several popular video games and lots of pinball games. There is a separate bar in the back when the place is busy. Pros: Pinball, Stiff Drinks, Good Dogs more

Something to DO! 4/29/2008

It's nice to hang out with some games....\r There was big bunch of ruffians hanging out when we first showed up, but inside was actually pretty calm (Sunday around 5). more

Pink Icee's 2/24/2008

I like this bar! They have liquor icee's and they are very strong and delicious! They also have hot and veg dogs for when you get that drunk craving for food, which are quite GOOD. The music is AWESOME on Tuesday nights when they have Punk night with live DJ's up front. On the weekends they open up the back bar and that is a very chill area with these cool bar seats and on Friday night the bartender in back is quite nice to look at. So I definitely recommend visiting her for some drinks. They also have tons of pinbal machines in the back and video games up front. One more thing they have CLOWNS, need I say more. Pros: clowns, drinks, dogs, pinball Cons: ?? more

Charming Dive 11/3/2006

The sweetest bartenders, great prices on drinks, great atmosphere. Unpretentious and hospitable, I would recommend it to pretty much anyone. Don't expect it to be fancy, but not the least bit stuck up either. They've been there forever and will never change (we hope). Pinball is fun!! Pros: Cool and casual, fun Cons: Not much to look at, but who cares! more

Great place for a first date 10/29/2006

You can learn a lot about someone from a night of PBR and Pinball, besides if they don't like PBR and Pinball they aren't worth a second date. more

great place to meet locals 10/23/2006

i like shorty's for the video games, cheap beer and hot dogs....lots of hipsters hang out here with their tatoos and PBR's. not a great place to pick up girls....but just to hang out and chill more

Clowns, Pinball,hot dogs & cheap beer! 2/4/2003

Shorty's is my favorite place in Seattle! Pinball,cheap beer, Hot Dogs and all those clown paintings, oh and make sure to check outthe Velvet Elvis painting above the bar, that's not a Microphone in his hand! No attitude, the backroom with the Pinball is great, the Dr. Who one is my favorite. You can go there, enjoy a night out,not break the bank and be greeted by a friendly bar staff. I highly recommend Shorty's! more

    A handsome Bobby Love circus mural is emblazoned on the restaurant's end wall. Diners sit at a lunch counter that could be from Woolworth's; well-muscled, T-shirted young men...
