Held once a month, this dance packs Re-Bar, a divey space in downtown to the brim with hot young (and young at heart) women.
Can be a super fun place to go dancing with your friends; just don’t touch the walls, as there tends to be a lot of random male sex happening here.
One cool thing about Neighbours is that it stays open until 4am for dancing, and after 2am (when the liquor goes away) it opens to the 18 crowd.
This is definitely the most popular to meet other ladies to hook up with.
Cherry hosts super popular parties on New Year’s and during Pride which are always a good time.
Wednesdays and Thursdays rotate between a number of events, which have included Open Mic, Seattle Spit (queer poetry/spoken word), Burlesque, and Karaoke.
Fridays and Saturdays usually feature a DJ and are sometimes themed dance parties and are guaranteed to be an ass-shaking good time.
Despite their obvious towards young, gay males, they do have a few lesbian bar tenders and I’ve never felt unwelcome here.
A word to the wise though — this bar tends to attract bachelorette parties, so if you’re not willing to deal with annoying straight girls trying to kiss you to mark off a bullet on their scavenger hunt, avoid this place during wedding season. Neighbours (1509 Broadway- Capitol Hill) – Similar to R Place, but more house music, less gay women, and a little bit sketchier crowd.
If you do your Googlage, you’ll find out that officially there’s only one “lesbian” bar in Seattle, the Wildrose Bar.
While this is technically true, there are a number of other bars that are either owned by lesbians or frequented by so many lesbians, they might as well be a dyke bar, including Jabu’s Pub, Out West Bar, and Tommy Gun Seattle.
Jabu’s Pub (174 Roy St- Lower Queen Anne) – Owned and operated by lesbians, Jabu’s isn’t an exclusively lesbian bar.
