Late-night eateries are an important part of Seattle’s culture. Its burgeoning music scene is well complemented by the accompanying bars and food spots. For those craving something beyond cream cheese hot dogs and Dick’s Drive-In, here’s our list of the places to keep in mind when cruising through the streets of Seattle after hours.
Starting as a nickel slots gambling parlor back when it was founded in 1954, Beth’s Cafe is your typical 24-hour American diner—greasy, large portions, and breakfast served all day. In fact, at Beth’s, the entire menu is available all day, including for takeout. If you’re brave enough, try their famous 12-egg omelette!
Mario Vellotti, a.k.a. Big Mario, moved to New York from Naples in 1964. He’s been making pizza pretty much ever since. First, he made pizza all over New York, and now he’s brought New York-style pizza to Seattle. With pizza by the slice, whole pies, and a full bar, this place on Capitol Hill will take care of you. You can also find them in Fremont or on Queen Anne, though they won’t be open quite as late.
This neighborhood bar offers generously portioned diner food all day and prides itself on being a contributing member of its community, staying active in philanthropy and creating an inclusive atmosphere within its walls. While the diner is open 24/7, the bar is open from 6 am to 2 am daily, and the food knows no limits. Check out Lost Lake for a quick drink, 4 am waffles, and everything in between.
A Tom Douglas restaurant, Palace Kitchen is a great late-night option. From handcrafted cheese to meats being roasted on the applewood grill (which you can watch in their open kitchen layout), the restaurant offers its full menu until 1 am. Other options include private dining for events or enjoying their happy hour during the week for a quick dish of fried chili mac bites.
With “alcoholics serving alcoholics since 1929,” The 5 Point Cafe is the oldest existing bar in Belltown. Welcoming, witty, and unafraid to ruffle feathers to help out the community, the previous owners worked hard to build this dive bar and diner into a second home for their neighbors. The entire menu is offered all day, every day, with large portions at affordable prices. An extra treat is a periscope in the men’s bathroom that provides a view of the Space Needle.
