Seattle Bars and Clubs - Seattle Lounges


Plush furniture, trendy cocktails and over-dressed crowds characterize Seattle’s lounges, but it’s not all bad. Seattle manages to keep the lounges as unpretentious as possible, while still being lounges. Plus, what’s better than kicking back on a cushy couch with a microbrew or cocktail after a long day of work? Barca in downtown Seattle proudly serves about 20 beers on tap—not to bad for a lounge, or any type of bar for that matter. Plus, some of Seattle’s best DJs keep the crowd relaxed by spinning chill beats. The See Sound Lounge is another favorite of Seattle locals that is known for hip beats and strong cocktails. Their delicious tapas are great for sharing, and soaking up the booze. If you’re in the mood for an upscale cocktail lounge, then The Sitting Room is the place to be.

When popular local bands play or one of Seattle's top spinners mans the decks at Chop Suey, get there early because even though the layout at this Seattle live music club is crowd friendly, it can get a little cramped at sold out shows.
