Nightlife in Seattle, WA
Lucky Strike is far more than your average bowling alley -- this is not the place for an afternoon of $1 lanes, pitchers of PBR and bumper bowling. A night out at Lucky Strike will bring your bowling standard up in a major way -- the lanes are amazingly gorgeous and have huge televisions above them so that you can watch the hottest game while you bowl. After racking up some strikes, go over to the portion of Lucky Strike that is a bar, lounge and dance club to end the night. We highly suggest two things for a night out at Lucky Strike -- calling first to make lane reservations and wearing heels.
Sometimes you want to go out for the night, but you don't want to go OUT. The perfect solution -- Cinebarre in Mount Lake Terrace, just outside of downtown Seattle. Cinebarre's slogan is "Eat. Drink. Watch Movies." When you get to the theater, you'll realize that they've taken out half the seats and added tables. Plus, you can order dinner and drinks before or during the movie to enjoy while you watch! A night out at Cinebarre is perfect for anything from a girlfriend chick flick night to a first date. We do suggest getting there early enough to snag a great seat!
For nightlife in Seattle that will make you laugh, grab a group of friends with great senses of humor and book tickets to an improv show at Unexpected Productions. Trust us when we say that you've never laughed this hard in your life -- the shows are hilarious and include a lot of audience participation (you'll be yelling suggestions at the stage!). We suggest grabbing a drink first at one of the fun Pike Place Market restaurants before the show -- try Etta's, located on the north side of the market.
With hours like 6pm to 9am, The Night Kitchen is a true nightlife hotspot in Seattle. Catering to insomniacs, students who have to study, club-goers and just plain night owls, they are the perfect spot if you're looking for somewhere to hang out after dark or need to grab a bite to eat after being out and about in the city. Their menu is amazing and delicious with a full breakfast menu and coffee that's always fresh. The vibe at The Night Kitchen is great too -- perfect for meeting a friend to chat or just to get out of the house if you can't sleep.
Can you Can Can? You're going to want to learn after a night out at Can Can Kitchen and Cabaret near Post Alley. There are shows at 7:30 and 10:30 most nights, but plan on going a bit early to enjoy dinner before the fun begins. When you walk down into Can Can, you'll immediately feel like you're being transported back in time to a little underground burlesque club in Paris. The show is different every night, but no matter who is performing, it is always sexy, fun and engaging. Can Can isn't recommended for the modest -- they are certainly known to push the envelope, in the best possible way!
