Redefining the “Classic Bar” in Seattle’s Belltown, Tini Bigs brings a classic bar into the new millennium.
Anchored by a vintage bar from the original Watertown restaurant, Tini Bigs offers a classic tin ceiling indirectly illuminated by red lights that produce a signature warm ambiance. Generous elevated black booths opposite the bar allow patrons to see and be seen. The center of the room is filled with a catwalk of a ramp that brings you deep into the bar and mediates the upper and lower levels. Custom schoolhouse globes illuminate the catwalk. The restrooms are concealed effectively in their own “building”, complete with an inverted tin cornice.
The overall effect is a comfortable balance between old and new. The bar also offers alfresco dining. Custom metal railings contain umbrella-topped tables on the west side of the building.
