#1989 #S1090 - John John's Gameroom, Seattle - 12/9/2012

John John's closed in late 2017.

This is a second bar and game room from the owners of Add-A-Ball in Fremont. Like Add-A-Ball, John John's serves beer (bottles and cans) for adults playing old classic games. Unlike Add-A-Ball, this space (former home of cafe and jazz club Faire Gallery) is largely a wrap-around second level, with narrow passages holding pinball machines and games here and there. As opposed to feeling like you're in the exposed concrete basement of someone's irresponsible uncle, this feels a bit like you're taking a break at some hip architecture firm, amidst nice woodwork, unusual angles, and exposed brick. And like Add-A-Ball, the owners and other staff are always very cool and make you feel at home -- strange uncle or not.
