  • Firehouse Coffee

    Firehouse Coffee

    There's a kids' play gym next door (Gymboree) which can be handy or noisy, depending on your need or mood. But it's a cozy coffeehouse atmosphere, with reliable sandwiches and tasty pastries. More on Firehouse Coffee »

  • Tula's

    Tula's

    A break from the rowdy Belltown crowd, Tula's is in a pocket of Second Avenue that's a little older and quieter than the slew of neighboring clubs. Live, local and national jazz acts are featured seven nights a week on a large, low stage that... More on Tula's »

  • Eastlake Bar and Grill

Bars & Clubs

  • Pimienta Bistro & Bar

    Pimienta Bistro & Bar

    Chef Blanca Rodriguez, a veteran of Nordstrom department store kitchens, has transcended the strip mall setting of Pimienta Bistro with her artful, Latin-accented food. The menu is mostly what was once called Continental, but the delicious dishes... More on Pimienta Bistro & Bar »

  • Conor Byrne

    Conor Byrne

    Narrow bars like the Conor Byrne Pub remind me of train cars. I love walking through the door and having the entire scene stretch out before me. The elaborate bar made of dark wood, the big brick wall, the tiny little stage in the corner, the... More on Conor Byrne »

  • Dante's

    Dante's

    Those people who claim the University of Washington lacks a consistently great bar within walking distance of campus-and there are many-have never been to Dante's. A self-proclaimed "U-District Tradition since 1966," the bar's air hockey, pinball... More on Dante's »

Music Venues

  • Neumos

    Neumos

    Neumos on Capitol Hill is one of Seattle's hippest music venues, and unfortunately, the people who work there know it. They've got a talented booking staff with excellent, eclectic taste, but if you feel the cold shoulder, just brush it off and... More on Neumos »

  • Last Supper Club

    Last Supper Club

    Boom Jinx, Armin van Burren, Lady GaGa - it's evident by the names that have graced the Last Supper Club (124 S. Washington St.) with live performances that the venue is a level above others in the city's limited club scene. Pioneer Square's... More on Last Supper Club »

Movie Theaters

  • Northwest Film Forum

    Northwest Film Forum

    This Capitol Hill two-plex imports just about every art-house title direct from Manhattan, and along with concessions serves beer and wine. It also hosts mini-fests ranging from children's movies to New Croatian Cinema, as well as the annual... More on Northwest Film Forum »

  • Cinebarre

    Cinebarre

    If fried pickles and pizza are the kind of concessions you like while taking in a flick--not to mention beer and wine, delivered right to your seat--then the age 21 and up (sorry, minors) Cinebarre is your kind of movie theater. If you're... More on Cinebarre »

  • Crest

    Crest

    The $3 bargain shows at Shoreline’s Crest Cinema are widely celebrated--and attended--by many budget-minded, Seattle-based cinephiles. Most titles among Its wide mix of programming, featuring everything from Hollywood favorites to independent... More on Crest »

Food Trucks

  • Cheese Wizards

    Cheese Wizards

    At Cheese Wizards, avid sci-fi fans Bo Saxbe and his little brother Tom aren't just strictly relying on cheese to be their focal point. This truck offers a variety of sandwiches with a little bit of sci-fi and fantasy thrown into the mix. The... More on Cheese Wizards »

  • I Love My GFF

    I Love My GFF

    Situated on the outskirts of the food truck cluster of South Lake Union, the food cart GFF resembles more of a hot dog stand than a bona fide food enterprise. But this cute cart could not be any more different than a hot dog stand. I Love My... More on I Love My GFF »

  • Here and There Grill

    Here and There Grill

    Julie Malcolm opened Here & There Grill three years ago, when Seattle's food truck scene just began to roll out. Her collection of 500 cookbooks feeds ideas for her revolving menu, and she repeats most menu items every few months, bringing back... More on Here and There Grill »

Coffee Shops

  • Caffe Vita

    Caffe Vita

    This is the perfect place to watch a beautiful, sunny afternoon slip away, ideally while sipping some iced coffee from this quality local coffee roaster, or munching on one of Vita's homemade baked goods. Tables scattered along the sidewalk... More on Caffe Vita »

  • Cherry Street Coffee House

    Cherry Street Coffee House

    Unlike the coffee shops whose food options amount to nothing more than a pile of stale, unappetizing pastries, Cherry Street Coffee is one of the rare joints where you can get a decent cup of coffee AND a decent snack to go. The bagels and... More on Cherry Street Coffee House »

  • Critic Reviews

    • Stalked by a shape-shifting, DNA-infiltrating alien on their Antarctic base, Kurt Russell and company dissolve into mutual suspicion and distrust. The beast could be inside any of them, so you have to shoot your pal—or incinerate him with a flamethrower—without hesitation to save your own skin. John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing is a reverse guys-on-a-mission flick, where unit cohesion falters and leader turns against crew. It’s morning in America, and utter darkness at the South Pole. The 1951 original came during the Cold War, when sci-fi... More on Egyptian »

    • Mel Brooks' inspired 1974 spoof is probably his best movie, affectionately rooted in the James Whale originals (particularly Bride of Frankenstein) yet knowingly updated with innuendo and vaudeville. Gene Wilder stars as the reluctant mad scientist who's determined not to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. The great Madeline Kahn plays his fiancée, destined to end up with quite another man (er, monster, played by Peter Boyle). Marty Feldman is the goggle-eyed hunchback. Wilder and Brooks are both credited with the script, which includes... More on Egyptian »
