It was a welcoming community gathering place offering a variety of forms of art, live music, dance, theater, comedy and spoken word. After six years on Capitol Hill in Seattle, the business closed in 2012. Seattle Weekly called it one of the “top 5 Seattle restaurants with music on the menu” just a year before its closure.
