West Seattle businesses: Redline ‘resurrection’ in the works

Hard to miss the flyers around The Junction, affixed to utility poles, touting “resurrecting the Redline,” the bar/restaurant that used to be in the 35th SW/almost-Avalon spot now inhabited by The Bridge. The flyers mention Twitter (here) and Facebook (here) accounts that so far are fairly devoid of details, so we dug up contact information for former Redline proprietor Scott Goerig, to ask if he’s involved: Scott’s reply: “I am part of a team who are in fact doing it, as I retained the brand. The twitter and facebook are brand new and will be updated as we progress construction and can let West Seattle know where, what, and when as we progress. Its gonna be a state-of-the-art electrifying spot that will appeal to every single person. Think of it as a popular board game, good for use; ages 2 – 102. Stay tuned.”

    A former employee of the Red Line told me it will be in the new building at 35th and Avalon. It will apparently be an all ages restaurant with bar format, as opposed to just a bar. Still to be a Cougars bar.

      That’s the address on the business license, but I don’t have a formal confirmation.

    Great. Another dive. Just what that corner needs.

    I got the impression from my friend that their goal is to not be much nicer that the old Red Line.

    What other dives are on that corner? The only bar type place down there is the bridge which is pretty un-divey. I don’t think kfc counts.
    Either way, the description of “resurrecting the Redline” sounds a bit tweakerish.

    Oops, mistyped. Goal is to be much nicer than the old place. My bad.

    Well The Bridge already did that….they are a MUCH better format, the same format the Redline tried. Good luck to The “new” Redline but you have a lot to live up to as The Bridge has created a welcoming place with amazing food. Never felt that the few times I went to The Redline.

    Im pretty psyched about this place opening… Ive been to the bridge and was very disappointed.. The Redline always seemed to be have the right idea but couldnt make it work in that horrible blding… Sounds like they are more organized this time. I bet it will be good…

    Scott pour 3 years into that location, cleaning up the clients, bringing in great ideas and making it a spot the Bridge became interested in. To say nothing was done will the Bridge moved in is beyond stupid. The Redline took decades of trash bars and failures and cleaned up that corner of the block. You’re Welcome West Seattle.

Sorry, comment time is over.
