With its abundance of pricey boutiques and high-rise condos, Belltown tends toward a ritzy club scene of angular leather couches and swanky light fixtures. While the Thai-inspired Buddha Bar teems with the requisite gussied-up crowds, its decor is decidedly homier, from the front lounge's mismatched furniture to the back bar's family-size dinner tables. Happy hour brings further enticement via $3 food specials (including spring rolls, fresh rolls, zucchini-onion tempura, and deep-fried crab delights) and discounted drinks: microbrew drafts, shots of Jäger, and single well drinks for $3; classic cosmos and well martinis for $4.50; and $1 off all glasses of wine. (Buddha Bar, 2222 Second Ave, 441-4449. Happy hour daily 5—7 pm, 10 pm—midnight.)
