From the ‘in case you wondered too’ file: What’s going on at ex-Feedback Lounge

(WSB photo)

5:26 PM: It’s been the question of the day: What’s going on at the former Feedback Lounge space (6451 California SW in Morgan Junction)?

While plywood’s up now, the facade was all but removed earlier today. Building permits and other documents show a renovation plan that’s been in the works for a few months to add more glass – “reconfigure storefront glazing” – to the front of the building.

We went by late this afternoon to check on its status and found someone who identified himself as a prospective tenant there to take a look. The landlords had told WSB recently that the building remains available for lease – as this listing indicates – and that the “Sound Bar” plan with nearby restaurateur Dan Austin hadn’t gone through after all.

The Feedback Lounge closed six months ago, after more than six years as a rock-‘n’-roll bar and restaurant.

ADDED 5:46 PM: A representative of the building’s ownership tells WSB regarding the renovations, “The building is going to look beautiful … bigger windows and a skylight. More natural light will show off the original cedar beams inside,” and confirms no tenant finalized yet. If you look at the photo in this 2008 WSB story, you’ll note the building’s corner space, home to Zeeks Pizza (WSB sponsor), used to be short on windows, too.

    Dang, in 2008 there wasn’t quite the anti-pizza fervor we seem to endure these days.

    Sounds promising. Excited for a great new restaurant in that space. @ethan stowell

    I hope we get another place with good cocktails.  It’s nice to have options for night life, and I’ve missed Feedback.

      It would be really good if it had brunch too.  

  • WW February 4, 2016 (8:52 pm)

    Cocktails and brunch! Yes!!!

  • A. February 4, 2016 (9:47 pm)

    Yes, for the love of god, let’s have another place where we can go and try to have a decent meal next to screaming children. /s

    Cocktails & Brunch- we already have that just up the block at the Bridge!Fresh pressed cocktails , Brunch , Pizza & Pasta at Peel & Press- Pizza at Zeeks. This looks like it will be an amazing space- hopefully something new will fill it.

  • ca February 5, 2016 (12:13 pm)

    so what is it going to be?? 

    • WSB February 5, 2016 (12:21 pm)

      CA, as reported above, there is no tenant yet (at least as of Thursday evening) so there is no answer to that yet. The owners are making the renovations; the permit was applied for months ago. – TR

    How about a nice classy piano and jazz bar?  

  • More February 5, 2016 (3:00 pm)

    More bars we have too many family friendly places

  • Mike February 5, 2016 (5:32 pm)

    We need a good breakfast place.

  • Carl February 5, 2016 (6:34 pm)

    Need more local music venues near public transit in West Seattle. Really really. No more sports bars, please. Lots of places with good breakfast already in West Seattle but hey, could always use more.

  • DH February 6, 2016 (7:19 am)

    I’m with those that don’t want an family friendly place. No offense intended but it is nice to have places without loud children. I won’t even step foot in Zekes. I don’t like the Bridge either but for different reasons.

  • Steffi February 24, 2016 (7:38 pm)

    I noticed a permit for a Liquor License on the building today. Any word yet?

    • WSB February 24, 2016 (8:03 pm)

      Yes, we reported on The Whisky West a week-plus ago. Will add the link when I’m back on desktop.

Sorry, comment time is over.
