Seattle takes its nightlife seriously. Whether you’re here with your besties, on a romantic getaway, or are single and ready to mingle, Seattle’s bars, clubs, and late-night hot spots have something for everyone.

Singles flock to the always-bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood, where options range from cozy cocktail bars to packed clubs. At The Baltic Room (1207 Pine St;, dancers fill the split-level venue, stocked with two bars. A more vintage vibe can be found at Havana (1010 E Pike St;, which doles out rum and tequila cocktails in what feels like a social club from old Cuba. In Fremont, the High Dive (513 N 36th St; hosts everything from ’80s cover bands to karaoke nights, with discounted drinks for some liquid courage.

Groups of friends can sing all night at Rock Box (1603 Nagle Pl;, where Japanese-style karaoke rooms offer parties of up to 35 a private place to belt it out. If your pals are into country, Little Red Hen’s (7115 Woodlawn Ave NE; line dances and jam bands have you covered. Or spend the night at The Can Can (94 Pike St;, a subterranean performance venue and bar that puts on sultry burlesque performances in its intimate space—perfect for bachelor and bachelorette parties or a night out with the pals.

If you’re part of a cozy couple, spend the night at Century Ballroom (915 E Pine St;, where you can take swing, salsa, and tango lessons at the drop-in dance sessions. Teatro ZinZanni (*222 Mercer St; combines dinner with a theater performance mixing cabaret, aerial performances, magic, music, and more. And at The Triple Door (*216 Union St;, you and your sweetie can book a table for two to enjoy concerts while you dine and drink at this sit-down venue.
