Flatstick Pub is Expanding to Pioneer Square!

We are bringing our unique combination of local craft beer, miniature golf, and innovative bar games to Seattle!

About the campaign

Flatstick Pub is coming to Seattle in early 2016! We're thrilled to be taking over the basement of the 116 year old Pacific Commercial Building on the corner of S Main & 2nd Ave S in historic Pioneer Square. We believe this incredible space, which features stunning architecture of the original brick walls, archways, and massive steel and wood beams, is the perfect place for us to expand. Will you join our campaign to make this next step a reality?

Our Local Focus:

Our mission at Flatstick Pub is to create an innovative and fun venue that celebrates and promotes locally made beer from independent breweries. Local breweries are good for local economies. They create jobs, contribute to city and state coffers, are often generous to local charities and causes, and help to revitalize neighborhoods. But they face stiff competition from mega corporate breweries who use their clout to dominate grocery shelf space, bar and restaurant tap handles, and beer options at sporting and entertainment venues. At Flatstick Pub we refuse to do business with corporate beer, we only buy from independent breweries located in our home state. When considering the impact on the local community and the fact that there are nearly 300 breweries here in Washington we see no reason to import beer from across the country or around the world. There is plenty of great beer made right here!

While the main focus at Flatstick is on beer we also work exclusively with local companies to source our wine, hard cider, food, and everything else we purchase whenever possible. We don't have our own kitchen, instead we work with neighboring restaurants to provide food for our guests.

Grand Plans for Our Location in Pioneer Square:

Fun is at the core of everything we do. We love to create entertaining bar games that you won't find anywhere else. That starts with our indoor miniature golf course. The new course will be Seattle themed with local landmarks serving as obstacles. The fun doesn't end with mini golf though, we're also going to be introducing the first ever Duffleboard course. Duffleboard is an original Flatstick Pub creation that combines the games of shuffleboard and mini golf. We've got even more new games coming, we want to make sure you'll never be bored at Flatstick.

What's better than getting together with friends or colleagues for a party? We're designing this space to be ideal for groups small and large to celebrate special occasions or corporate functions. There will be dedicated party suites and group areas that can host anywhere from 8 to 200 people.

Where you come in:

We can't wait to be a part of this community and we are hoping that you can help us make this dream a reality. It's a really big project and we need a little bit of help raising the money to complete it. All contributions will be matched by the Fund Local matching capital program, which means that each $50 you lend means $100 for Flatstick Pub's growth. Join us on this next phase of our growth! We look forward to having some special Squareholder events before and after we open so you can see what you've created!

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
