West Seattle biz closures, both permanent & temporary

TUESDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE: Redline owner Scott Goerig, who was unavailable for comment yesterday, e-mailed to clarify today that while the “Goodbye Redline” party IS on for Sept. 10-11, he has NOT set an actual closing date yet.

ORIGINAL MONDAY REPORT: We found out today that Redline Music & Sports Bar will be closing permanently after next week. As per a message on their Facebook page, they’ll be having a “Goodbye Redline Weekend” party on Friday and Saturday, September 10th-11th.

Here’s an excerpt from Facebook:

Hi friends~ many of you have supported me for the past 3 years and through MANY awards and MEMORIES it’s finally time to move on! (tear)
Thank you so much, especially those of you who sipped tea with me late into the night while moppin up…


Come say goodbye to Redline all weekend long from sun-up to sundown! I know we can’t fit everyone in one day, hence if Friday doesn’t work just cruise on in Saturday instead!


A development proposal for the site including Redline surfaced last year – here’s our coverage of the Design Review meeting held for the proposal last November – there’s no indication the permit process has progressed further, though.

Also, just received word from Gretchen at Square One Books (WSB sponsor) about their temporary closure beginning next week: 

Square One Books will be closed for 1 week, from September 1st-September 7th for inventory and an update of our computer systems. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Where else are we going to get our fill of 35th and Avalon shenanigans and Big Buck Hunter? Sad day…

    Sorry to hear another business is closing, however, it’s time for this property owner to clean up that rubble filled lot and knock down those 10 foot weeds. Please, be a good neighbor so the Triangle can garner some new businesses because you have some pride in your property, even if it is a vacant lot.
