And more West Seattle business news: Skylark Café goes 7 days

Lots of West Seattle business changes making news this week – first M3 Bodyworks moved a few blocks north, then Click! Design That Fits announced it’s moving to The Junction, this morning, Square One Books‘ closure, and now, news of changes at Skylark Café and Club (which like M3 and Click! is a WSB sponsor). Announced by proprietor Jessie SK via e-mail newsletter this morning:

Skylark will soon be 7 days a week. You asked for it, you got it…well, actually, you asked for it and we ignored you for a really long time. “We’re a small family-run biz,” we protested. “We need a day off.” The confusion persisted, however, since restaurants close on Mondays, and you all have insisted on perceiving us as a bar. (It’s okay, we forgive you, we don’t mind being a bar. You can bring your kids here though, I swear!)

When will we do the emergency building repairs? When will we sleep? How will our Kitchen Manager have a spare moment to take care of his first child who was just born this weekend? All these questions are answered by announcement number two…

We’re closing for weekday lunch. Fear not! We shall keep our extraordinarily long happy hour (3 pm to 7 pm all seven days of the week) and just open right up with said happy hour on weekdays. We shall most certainly keep our popular and delicious weekend brunch (9 am to 3 pm Saturday AND Sunday).

THESE NEW HOURS ARE EFFECTIVE AS OF TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. So weekday lunch ceases at the end of this week, and Monday, September 20 at 3 pm is your first day to come hang out with us [on a Monday].

Feel free to e-mail us feedback or further suggestions, or better yet come on in on a Monday starting September 20th and say hi in person!

Skylark is at 3803 Delridge Way (map), just south of The Bridge, and you can call ahead for takeout, by the way. Plus their almost-world-famous no-cover live music continues – the full calendar can always be found here.

    I currently have a show up at Skylark and am having a closing party on Sunday the 12th from 2-4. I hope to have music from this yrs Tiki Oasis event, a special cocktail~ The Papuan Sour, and cupcakes for my birthday. Please join me and some of my regular crowd to see some tiki art, and have one last splash of summer.
    Plus I hear the tater tots are the YUM.

    Sorry Coffee! It wasn’t an easy decision but I hope you’ll continue to come in a little later. Full menu starts at 3pm as well as happy hour menu. Thanks for being our customer and I hope to see you for lunch the rest of this week…

    when I swa the announcement, I noticed the Monday opening, but didn’t read enough to relaize lunch is now gone too.

    now the lunch options in the area is down to just Subway… are you kidding me ?

    that’s our go- to place for office lunches, to go lunches when I need comfort food….

    well you’ve taken away my lunch time business, hmm, guess I’ll be back after I get over this initial frustration…. used to be such a good restaurant with good food, guess they are going for more of a ‘dive bar’ character

Sorry, comment time is over.
