I ran across a post the other day where people were discussing the lack of evening/night places in the CD to hang out. So I thought I’d list a couple of my favorites (in no particular order) that are open past 7pm and see if others had suggestions to add:
Watertown (12th/Jefferson-ish) — cafe serving Vivace beans, vegetarian food, and they now have a full bar! I think they’re open from early morning until 9 or 11pm (I can’t remember which). It’s more like a cafe to hang out in, they have an xbox, board games, and a ping pong table too.
Twilight (25th/Cherry) — bar that opens around 4ish until last call. Full bar/food, now with an outdoor patio open until 9pm and ping pong outside. Their food rocks and their drinks are cheap, with happy hour from open until 8pm.
Central Cinema (21st/Union) — A must for anyone who lives in the CD and beyond. Beer/Wine, Coffee/Tea. A cafe that serves good food and has wifi and a few board games. And, of course, the cinema that you can also order food/drinks in. The cafe is usually a chill place to hang out in, and they have A/C for those occasional Seattle heat waves.
Cafe Presse (12th/Spring?) — cafe/bar that serves full espresso options, food, and full bar. open from 7am until 2am I think. While it does get busy during peak eating hours, I’ve been able to hang out here and work (they have wifi) or sit at the bar with a book with no problems. They don’t like it when you take up multiple tables though.
