Three great tastes that taste great together—pizza, pool, and local beer—have made this Anchorage hangout a quirky-but-fun hit.
Named for the nearby mountain, Flattop was opened in 2013 by the same team that created Anchorage institution Humpy’s Alehouse and the urbane bistro bar SubZero.
Flattop‘s décor—accented by art by local painter Duke Russell—has a retro, 1950s and ’60s vibe, to hearken back to the Anchorage's burgeoning days as a big city. The crowd, while it leans to the 20s and 30s demographics, is friendly and welcoming. But the two focal points are timeless: New-York-style, thin-crust pizzas and pool.
New York Style Meets Alaska Style
Granted, some of the pizza toppings are unique—like the big kahuna (pulled pork) or the Anchortown (chicken and bacon)—but you also can’t go wrong with the classic-flavored appetizers such as the pepperoni rolls, the full bar or the beer-lovers’ lineup of brews on tap (all Alaska craft beers).
Eight Ball and Beer Floats
Pool—played on old-school Olhausen tables—is available for a flat fee rate (starting at $5 an hour) but there are frequent special nights, with pool-table deals, from ladies’ night to military night.
And as proof that there is (a little) more to life than just pizza and beer, there is also a solid dessert menu: house-made ice cream sandwiches, root beer floats and the 21-and-up Beer Float, made with ice cream and an oatmeal stout.
