5 Years Behind Bars

April 23, 2014

Feedback Lounge 5th Anniversary

On April 25th, 2009 we opened the Feedback Lounge. Now it’s five years later, a pretty cool milestone. So how do we celebrate? Loudly.

We’ve been doing warm-up celebrations all week long, but the big bash happens on Thursday, April 24th, with an awesome rock show on Friday. Here’s what we have planned…

We’re launching our new spring/summer menu, loaded with Chef Wade meals that’ll set off food alarms in your head. Not only that, he tweaked our wildly popular $3 – $6 Happy Hour menu AND is extending our kitchen hours until 1AM. So when you get a case of the late night hunger games, we got your back. And insides.

Matt Johnson, co-owner and master cocktail craftsman, has some new house drinks for your consideration in anticipation of our new cocktail menu, which he’s still fussing over.

And to make the place look special, we hung rare rock art, with select pieces from co-owner Jeff Gilbert’s private stash. These include Pearl Jam, Alice Cooper, The Rolling Stones and Kiss. Speaking of, we have our Rok Box loaded up with amazing Kiss memorabilia, just as we did five years ago when we opened the doors.

And what would a milestone celebration be without some Feedback Lounge alumni? Joining us as guest bartender is Leslie Johnston, who left us last year for sunnier weather (Los Angeles). We talked her into coming up and getting back behind the bar. She’s not the only one. Wait ’til you see who else is re-joining us.

There will be custom floral arrangements, DJ Kingblind doing a special anniversary night of music, and a custom anniversary cake made by Bradi Jones, who has been doing all our cakes since we opened. (We also replenished our Feedback Lounge hoodies and t-shirts.)

As for the big rock show on Friday, April 25th, it’s A Very Ozzy Anniversary, a tribute to Ozzy and, well, us! Opening the show is Bastard of Reality, a stellar Black Sabbath tribute. We’ve had this show here several times since last October and our customers keep begging us to bring it back. Beg no more.

Thank you West Seattle for an adventure filled first five years. We have much more planned for the next five, so come celebrate with us; It’s as much a party for you as it is us.
