Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just looking for something different to do for dinner, Seattle offers plenty of options for turning your evening meal into an unforgettable experience.
Set in a historic building in Pioneer Square, Café Nordo takes dinner theater to a whole other level with fully immersive productions. For each new show, the venue’s simple brick-walled interior is transformed to suit the theme and put the diners at the center of the action. The cast members also play the role of servers, dishing up a creative multi-course menu (and optional wine pairings) inspired by the show.
The Triple Door
At swanky dinner club The Triple Door, located a block east of Pike Place Market, plush booths offer a great sight line to the stage and table service from Wild Ginger, the pan-Asian restaurant next door. The club’s uniquely intimate format makes it a favorite stop for touring national musical and theater acts.
Moulin Rouge-inspired Can Can, also in Pike Place Market, presents a range of entertaining events, from all-ages cabaret brunch matinees to racy late-night burlesque shows. Its dinner menu features seasonal selections inspired by French and New Orleans cuisine, much of it made with market ingredients.
The Pink Door
The moody atmosphere at The Pink Door, just a few minutes’ walk north, makes it one of Seattle’s most popular date night destinations. Lovebirds dine on Italian-style dishes while enjoying the nightly entertainment, which runs the gamut from Tarot card readings and magic shows to aerial and cabaret performances.
Dimitriou's Jazz Alley
The Belltown neighborhood has two can't-miss spots for jazz lovers. The iconic Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley has played host to some of the best jazz artists in the world—including Maceo Parker, Betty Carter and Chuck Mangione— since it opened back in 1979, and serves up a full menu of Northwest fare during its almost-nightly dinner performances.
Live comedy, burlesque, karaoke and interactive film screenings are all part of the entertainment at The Rendezvous, which features intimate seating in a former subterranean speakeasy as well as a beautifully restored Art Deco theater. Its menu of upscale bar food and handcrafted cocktails is sure to satisfy.
