Central District Bars & Nightlife
The Neighbor Lady
2308 E. Union St., Central District
A second bar by the owners of much-adored Twilight Exit, you'll know the Neighbor Lady by a large painted sign on the brick wall outside. Inside, you'll find the bar's signature brocade wallpaper and Victorian light fixtures which, when combined with the dark wood of the bar, make for a decidedly moody vibe that's exactly what the doctor ordered for cozy, rainy nights. It's a point of pride that there are a lot of vegetarian meals on the menu here, but we like it best for a stiff drink and a pile of fries.
2514 E. Cherry St., Central District
You can always count on a dive bar for a great burger and beer, and Twilight Exit is considered one of the best in Seattle (the aforementioned burgers are grass-fed and ground in house). At night, they've got a jukebox, a photo booth, shuffleboard, and karaoke every Sunday.
