With a 1920’s theme, the full-sensory experience can include acrobats and fire breathers.

Monkey Loft

The Monkey Loft sets itself apart from other Seattle nightclubs with a more intimate setting and the Deck, an after-hours outdoor patio. Though no alcohol is served after 2 am per city regulations, the Deck – with a fireplace, seating, and exquisite views – stays open until 4 am for those who want to keep on dancing. Invested in the local scene, Monkey Loft fits into the SODO neighborhood with its industrial aesthetic. This is a place for the after-party.
