Mayor comes to Washington Hall for Seattle Nightlife Initiative update

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn will discuss the latest updates for the Seattle Nightlife Initiative at a Tuesday night media briefing at Washington Hall.


Mayor Mike McGinn will report Tuesday on the Seattle Nightlife Initiative, including input received through the public review process, status reports on the individual components of the initiative, and next steps. 

LOCATION: Washington Hall, Lodge Room, 153 14th Avenue

TIME: 6 p.m.

The mayor’s meeting to launch the effort to overhaul the city’s nightlife laws was held on Capitol Hill in July. Last week, we noted the start of acting classes as the historical performance hall as another sign of its return to prominence in the community. You can notch this announcement as another good sign for the Hall — and also acknowledge that it might be a tough week for scheduling with so many still on holiday.

Washington Hall is located at 153 14th Ave.

Welcome Videré? Tiny apartment project opens

The big day for little Videré was supposed to be August 1st but large media says the opening has been delayed until this weekend. The biggest unit in the apartment complex at 23rd and E. John is less than 200 square feet. Rents run from between $425 and $675. It’s a student and young worker’s dream apartment as long as you don’t mind six parking spaces for more than 40 units.

Neighbors weren’t so sure about the plan when they first heard about it. Now that people will actually be living in it, it will be interesting to see the impact this type of housing has on the area. Expect Crush won’t have a lot more reservations, but the Bottleneck Lounge and the newly opened Cafe Char might enjoy the new foot traffic. And a few more people on the bus won’t be a bad thing. Keep us posted on the parking. Here’s hoping the new tennants have someplace to keep a bike.
