Morgan Junction’s Feedback Lounge announces its opening date

(note at left, Zeeks has put in its glass)
They promised they’d announce their opening day/time today, and indeed, here it is, announced online: 6 pm next Saturday, April 25, the doors open at Feedback Lounge (between the new Zeeks Pizza opening May 1st and the old Beveridge Place Pub location that opened exactly a year ago immediately south of the new one).

ADDED 9:45 AM: More details from the e-mail announcement that came in about 45 minutes after we originally published this item – if you’re not on the FL e-mail list and haven’t seen it, read on:

The Feedback Lounge Opens To The Public. No, Really!
The two most asked questions of us in 2008/2009 were: “What’s that thing hanging out of your nose?” and “When are you guys gonna open?” The answer to the second one is Saturday, April 25th at 6PM. After a year of destroying, re-building, re-designing and uncontrollable sobbing, we finally have the Feedback Lounge ready for the public. Operating hours from that day henceforth (sorry – word of the day calendar): Monday through Sunday, 4 PM ’til 2 AM.

The FBL features an tongue-spinning array of unique cocktails; Wait ’til you sample Matt Johnson’s “The Best Drinks You’ve Never Had.” Not only are they insanely tasty (think angel sweat but with a straw and coaster), each has a cool name, like Oslo Mule, Corpse Reviver #2, and None But The Brave. These adult refreshments – drawing inspiration from pre-Prohibition drink recipes – will totally make your tongue rock out like it was in the front row of a concert (Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers or KISS).

Our food menu is of the “don’t bore us, get to the chorus” variety – short ‘n sweet. A step above the usual pub grub (grease is not the word), you can get everything from a salad to a steak (and visa versa). Harmonic Happy Hour food items are $4 each. Our Late Menu will feed your face until 1AM. Our Breakfast Menu (debuting in June) will wake your face up and feed it starting at 7:30AM on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Go to our spanking new website (going live on Monday, April 20th sometime during the mysterious hour of night) to see the kinds of ingestibles you’ll be spilling all over your shirt and/or Old Navy pants:

Other eye-tingling features at the Feedback Lounge include Front of House, showing non-stop music videos, vintage pop music shows and concerts; The Whammy Bar, housing our collection of cool and unusual vintage guitars (as well as being available for private parties); Wall of Sounds, a rotating showcase of music media; The Tune-O-Matic Library, our collection of books on music artists; The Sunndeck, our 40-foot outdoor lounge named in tribute of Sunn Amplifiers; and the Rok Box, an 11-foot display of fun and cool music memorabilia! More Twitter-worthy stuff: Old school pinball, brand new bathrooms and tons of in-house programmed music from Rock to Roll, Blues to Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly to Honky Tonk, Big Band to Big Surf, Punk to Funk, Old School Country to Swing, as well as Jazz, Pop, Psychedelic, and music from the artists of the Pacific Northwest, past AND present! (The Feedback Lounge is a licensed member of ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.)

Coming in June…
Cool Stuff Designed To Promote Customer Awareness
The Feedback Lounge is rolling out some fun features in June: Breakfast With The Beatles every Sunday (broadcasting KZOK’s insanely popular two-hour Beatles radio show), Sinatra Sundays, Motown Mondays, Bluesdays, AC/DC “High Voltage” Fridays and (wait for it)… Hash After The Bash, paying tribute to The Off Ramp, one of Seattle’s legendary rock clubs that used to serve hashbrowns, scrambled eggs and a biscuit/roll of flavored duct tape on a presumably “clean” paper plate for an insanely low price after last call. (Our version will taste better as we’ll use less tape and more butter.) We’ll do this every Friday and Saturday night in June.

And it doesn’t stop there. We’ll be introducing more new stuff/drinks/food through the year and we’ll announce all of it through the hi-tech method of carrier-seagulls. And, um, this e-letter.

Come visit us – we’re at 6451 California Ave. SW (on the corner of California Ave. SW & Fauntleroy in West Seattle) and or call: (206) 453-3259. Lots of free parking out back, 10 minutes from downtown (unless you have a hovercar, in which case 3 minutes, give or take, depending on fluctuations within the Matrix). E-mail us:

Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go freak out.

P.S. No, we’re not a live music venue.

    Not a live music venue? You sounded so perfect i had developed a crush on you. Now, I dunno, sigh, I guess I will have to find someone else for my blues fix. It’s too bad, you really would have liked to see me dancing. :P

    My feedback for the FBL: no live music = lame.

  • WSB April 18, 2009 (5:46 pm)

    CJ, seems they wanted to but couldn’t. See the 4/10 entry here:
    I recall seeing it discussed in more detail earlier but can’t quite find the archives – TR

    Now as long as the place isn’t crowded as **** all the time, it’s on!

    One factor: live music venues with a capacity over 99 now require a prohibitively expensive sprinkler system. Landlords aren’t motivated to help pay for it, banks aren’t motivated to loan club owners money for it (since they can’t come in and take it and they are more conservative about lending now than ever), and most existing clubs don’t have the money to retrofit–which they are required by law to complete by 2009–so the end of this year should be interesting.

Sorry, comment time is over.
