We recently held a birthday bash at this establishment and the management was so helpful in accomodating our large party. The atmosphere was really fun and the staff was wonderful in making sure everyone was taken care of all night long.

Our organization just had our volunteer appreciation party at Balmar. We loved the atmosphere, cool lighting and decor, the excellent, friendly and helpful service, before and during our event. They worked with us ahead of time to make the whole thing smooth and easy. Our group of about 15 loved having our own corner with comfy seating, right across from the bar, which was reserved for us. Everyone had a great time. The atmosphere and overall feel at BalMar added to the fun and excitement of the event, and was the perfect way to treat our deserving volunteers! We'll definitely look for other special occasions to celebrate at Balmar.

Frat boys and the unwanted advances that come along with them, mixed with the snobby "new Ballard condo" crowd. No seating and bad lighting, not enough space and all the standing room upstairs feels generally awkward. I hate this place. It's everything that's wrong with Ballard. There's nothing extraordinary about the drinks, except the line to get them being extraordinarily long. I don't understand why you'd go here on purpose. I guess I just like my Ballard full of old swedish people ,drunk divers ( not drivers) and guys that work on boats. If I wanted to look fancy and stand in line I'd go to Belltown.

5 stars for the venue: Great dance floor, fab & fun music to hang or dance to, nice comfy couches, loads of fun people, it's packed!!!

3 stars for the service and price. I ordered a well drink (cheapest rum you can get) and it cost me $6 plus tip. A fancy drink (such as cosmos, martinis, etc) runs around $10. The service is almost non-existant. Bartenders are either too busy or if they are not too busy seem a little stuck up.

But since I typically go to bars for the people and the dancing, I would definitely definitely definitely come back! I might even plan a dance party here myself as I'm already wanting to go back

My experience is for the Private party room (birthday):
I had an amazing time. I asked my friends what they thought about the decor, environment and if they had a good time, they all said great things. Most of my friends didn't know about the BalMar until my event. It was very convenient having the restrooms close by as well as the upstairs bar and dance floor. There were some occasions were people had to go to the bar for drinks, but other then that service was excellent and speedy. The busser was constantly coming through and taking away empty glasses and plates which was great.
The music was great, at one point I was dancing and there was a circle around me, ha, that was a first!
Susan was very friendly, helpful and amazing. I called last minute to reserve and she helped me out and accommodated my needs. When we arrived, we had the whole area to ourselves with 9:30 reservation signs all over.
I would definitely recommend this place to my friends as well as have another event here.

I had my birthday party in the Halverson room at BalMar and it was great! The owner, Susan, was great to work with the schedule to reserve the space and our server, Randy, was fabulous! Our big group was very well taken care of!
It is an amazing space and although it's a little different than it used to be (there is a dance floor where the pool tables used to be) it has a fun, upbeat vibe perfect for large groups.

Hosted a surpise birthday party here. Our server was great. We had to meet a $500 minimum and pay a room fee of $50. Pretty easy to do if you have around 35-50 guests. Bal Mar is really easy to work with and will accomodate to your party.

I have been to BalMar a couple of times now, twice for birthday parties, and once just to stop in for a drink. For the private parties it was great because we supplied the crowd, and they took care of the drinks and atmosphere. But when we went for a random night out the crowd was not the best. Nothing against the actual bar/lounge, just the people who happened to walk in that particular night. It was like a 30 year old group of over-aged frat boys. Not sure what was up, but BalMar is great as long as you aren't trying to meet people there.

Pros: Fun atmosphere, great service

Cons: A bit on the pricy side and the crowd is not my scene

.

The BalMar is a good private party location. They have a good sized back room that is private enough to only have your people there, but still feel like you are part of the bar/lounge atmosphere.

They were helpful in organizing, flexible with working out how the bar tab was going to work and everything went without a hitch. The only downside was only one server for 30+ people, so service was slow.

We had our holiday party at the Bal/Mar and it was great! The food was good and the spacing was perfect. It was perfect for a crowd of about 85 people. I would say it would work for any group 70-100 but not much more than that because it would be too crowded. The facility was nice but still casual enough that people did not feel like they had to dress up too much. Everyone enjoyed the pool tables and all of the areas to "hang out". I would strongly recommend this for any sort of party. Susan, the party planner, was very helpful, keeping our party within budget and making sure that we had enough food for everyone. She pulled together a great assortment of food that had enough variety for a large group of people. Overall, our party was very successful, appealing to the whole range of ages in our office.

I've been to BalMar a couple of times. It's very cute, and it's great to see that Ballard is finally catching up to the rest of the city in terms of having more classy places to grab a drink. However, both times I have been to BalMar, the person at the door checking ID's has been extremely rude. Ever hear of a first impression? The first encounter I had was with a girl who asked me to fix their door mat AFTER I TRIPPED ON IT BECAUSE IT WAS ALREADY MESSED UP BY SOMEONE ELSE. Excuse me, but I do not work at BalMar. AND I could have seriously injured myself. Instead of asking me, "Um, are you going to FIX that RUG?" after I tripped, it would have been nice if the girl could have extended an expression of concern and then FIXED THE RUG HERSELF SINCE SHE IS THE ONE GETTING PAID TO WORK THERE.
The second time, the guy checking ID's was just rude. That's the best way I have to describe him. I'm SORRY if you don't like standing in the cold. I'm SORRY if you hate being a bouncer. However, the fact that you CHOSE TO HAVE THAT AS YOUR PROFESSION is clearly NOT MY FAULT. Get a new job if you hate it so much, or deal with it and smile, because YOUR JOB is in the HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY and therefore you should be HOSPITABLE. :)
Once you get past the door, the atmosphere inside is classy, and the cocktail waitresses are attentive, quick, and friendly, which is the main reason why I will come back here.

This is still one of my favorite bars in Seattle. I think they have the best drink menu around. Though, I have to say that I will miss my bartender Joe. Good luck cutie. You will be missed!

I made reservations for my birthday of about 15 people and they reserved a portion of their lounge downstairs for me for free, with no minimums and they even split our tabs up. The service was great, everyone was very friendly, and they made really good mixed drinks. I highly recommend this place.

BalMar is one of the few lounges in Ballard that offers an upscale yet comfortable setting. Its the kind of lounge that one would expect to be a "hot spot" in downtown Seattle and I was surprised that I found such a great getaway in Ballard. BalMar offers two scenes, a downstairs intimate lounge and upstairs for larger groups, that combine to the exquisiteness of the entire experience. I've enjoyed starting my night with a few girlfriends downstairs and heading up later for music, pool, and to mingle.

The BalMar was fantastic. I had a small party for my husband down stairs near the bar. The wait staff was great. My guests were raving about the facility - the comfort of the couches.
We had a great experience and would highly recommend BalMar

Balmar is the perfect place to hold a birthday party! We had a 25 person party at the BalMar, our reservations were right across from the pool table area, this made for great mingling, it felt like we had our own area for just our friends, but still in the middle of everything. Food, drinks, service was EXCELLENT!

I am confused by a couple of the bad reviews of one of my favorite spots in Ballard... Not only are the bartenders educated and creative mixologists, but they don't come off as pretentious if you have a question about what they recommend or a new product you don't recognize. Joey and John are well-versed in spirits, wine and beer knowledge and I found them very helpful. The Owner/GM, Dwayne is very gracious and always has a smile on his face. He puts on a great trivia night and other fundraising events for local non-profits. Dwayne takes great pride in working with his chefs to come up with a wide variety of small bites and entrees (as well as desserts) that use ingredients at the peak of their flavor. I have never ordered anything that wasn't delicious and look forward to new selections as the seasons change. On the weekend, the DJ packs the upstairs and there are plenty of young singles to peruse. During the week there are more regulars and locals that frequent the bar/restaurant for a nice quiet lounge environment. I hold Balmar near and dear as I have seen it evolve since its inception (I live just a couple blocks north). If you have had a less than stellar time there long ago, I definitely encourage you to give it another shot!

Avoid! Problem with Balmar is there are so many better places to go. Happy hour food and specials are poor, service is rude and unfriendly as others have mentioned.

The upstairs lounge can be fun and has pool, but the downstairs is a waste with terrible service and cold service all around. Only reason to go here is if you are meeting friends upstairs, bad spot for happy hour or food, and not a good singles scene either.

Last weekend I was at the BalMar and I left very unhappy. During last call, the group I was with and I ordered drinks and moments later an employee (not the bartender) grabbed it out of our hands! I asked why he just did that and he said the bar was closed and we had to leave (it was 1:45am on a Friday). I spoke to the bartender and asked why he would sell us drinks when they would take it within seconds and he just shrugged. He voiced no apologies whatsoever.

I could not believe the poor customer service and I have never experienced this mistreatment before. I've been to BalMar a couple of times now, but I can say wholeheartedly that I will never be coming back.

Went there for the first time last weekend and loved it! Out on a date Friday nite and the bar across had a loong wait, so we decided to try it. our waiter was great, gave good suggestions and it was cozy and quiet until it got a bit later and louder. Loved it so much I went back the next night with a friend. Again, good service and a good crowd. It's my new favorite bar!

I love this place. I honestly don't know what the other reviewer was talking about when he said any of the employees were rude. I've never experienced that and in fact, have only had very friendly and fairly quick service there. I love their bar menu - pretty extensive for snacks and portions are generous for everything pretty much being around $8. I love that the cushy area on the main floor in back is almost always open for casual chat w/ your friends if you come w/ a larger group or there's usually somewhere just for 2. The upstairs gets crowded on weekends for sure, but I tend to visit during the week when it's a bit more low-key. The bartenders have always been nice and conversational and everyone I've brought there has loved it. Seriously, one of my favorite bars in Seattle.

I really gave this place a try.... not worth it at all. Every bartender/waitress I came into contact with was rude, standoffish and generally angry. The bartender on Tuesday nights is a $%#. We ventured upstairs to "trivia night" (on Tuesdays)... the bartender upstairs was equally rude... Don't bother with this place. It's the kind of place that's giving Ballard a bad name nowadays. There are many more bars on the same street that are much friendlier, cheaper and have a better atmosphere....

I like this place. It's the perfect, more upscale place to have post-dinner drinks. The brick and the lighting make you feel relaxed, homey and urban and like you're tucked away in a spot that not many other people know about. The drinks are good, and BalMar takes a well-meaning stab at creating an interesting drink menu. Perfect for a date, or after-work-professional drinks too. A little more expensive, but I'm happy not to pay that money for a meat-market like the Red Door.

My wife and I stopped in here after dining at Volterra for a nightcap. The place was great looking and the staff was attentive...and also easy to look at. The drinks were VERY good and reasonably priced. We had just eaten so I can't comment on the food but I will definetly be back to try it. A nice place to have a drink where you can still hear well enough to have a conversation.

Tonight we celabrated a girfriends birthday at Balmar. First of all she called a couple of days ago to let them know that she was expecting about 15 people. They readily accomidated her by reserving an area without question on a Friday night. Our service was great! I have worked in the service insustry for many years so I consider myself to be very picky in regards to performance and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience. Our waitress even keep separate tabs without us asking and I was amazed how well she kept trackof us. The test of good service is with a large group and they passed with flying colors! Incase you are wondering I don not know or was persuded by anyone of Balmar to write this it is just my honest opinion. Thanks you guys!
