Located in the heart of Ballard, the BalMar is housed in a 4,000 square-foot 1920s building (originally Halversons department store) and offers a unique space, exceptional service, and delicious food and drink. The space combines its original features, including exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and vintage light fixtures with modern red terrazzo bars, contemporary furnishings and custom metal work. With two floors, each with its own bar and bathrooms, the main floor offers a lounge-y vibe, while the upstairs has a dance floor for more of a party atmosphere. DJs spin on Fridays and Saturdays. With flexible seating to accommodate large parties, BalMar takes reservations for groups from 10 people to 100 and has an extensive banquet menu.
