For this week’s edition of Date Night, our partners up in the Emerald City bring us to Capitol Hill, a neighborhood alive with culture, historical landmarks, and day and night entertainment. Seattle Magazine divulges the best spots to eat, drink, shop and play for a day or night excursion that will make your date night a memorable one.
Following the renovation of Capitol Hill’s historic Oddfellows building, myriad new shops, restaurants and hangouts have opened their doors along three hot blocks of Pine Street, between 11th Avenue and Broadway. This hip microhood is fit for both day jaunts and late-night outings; here, you’ll find the street that never sleeps.
Eat and Drink
Just north of Pine on Nagle, the area’s newest eatery caters to late-night diners. Sit down at the simple and elegant Cure (1641 Nagle Place; 206.568.5475; cureseattle.com) for artisan breads and cheeses, cocktails or wine and “The Sandwich,” a mouthwatering combination of mortadella pork and pecorino cheese (photo at right).
Street-food fanatics adore the first permanent location of famed taco truck Rancho Bravo Tacos (1001 E Pine St.; 206.322.9399; myspace.com/ranchobravotacos), which took over an old KFC building three years ago.
Inside the Oddfellows building, Oddfellows Café and Bar (1525 10th Ave.; 206.325.0807; oddfellowscafe.com), is the shabby-chic Americana brainchild of Linda Derschang that goes from coffeehouse/bakery during the day to full-bar, full-service restaurant at night.
Get your sweet-tooth fix at Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop (917 E Pine St.; 206.708.7947; mollymoonicecream.com), where—with flavors like Theo chocolate and salted caramel—you’d better opt for two scoops.
Upstairs, satisfy your appetite at the sleek, sexy Tin Table (915 E Pine St.; 206.320.8458; thetintable.com), open until 1 a.m. for late night snacking.
