BIZNOTE: Pacific Room opening this spring at former Hawks Nest West

The sign’s been up for a few weeks, and now we finally have caught up with the folks working to open the Pacific Room at 2806 Alki SW, where Hawks Nest West closed earlier this year. Kurt Niemeyer tells us they’re planning to be a live music venue – 3 or 4 acts a week – as well as restaurant/bar (serving “bistro-type food”), open to all ages. They are remodeling the space right now and hope to be open in May.

    Interested in what they are going to use as a draw when live music doesn’t work out.  It’s never been successful on Alki because of parking, setting and focus of the venue.  I think it has to be a good level of food, quality of cocktails and decor or else its just another fledgling spot looking for an identity.

    I hope they realize it’s tough to stay busy on the off season here.  Three things you really need to make it on Alki. 1.  Have something that draws in the locals to keep you busy in the off-season 2.  Have something Great for the tourists that draws them inside on a sunny day, and off the beach. 3. Please just be open!!!  Hawks nest was closed over 50% of the time but they were supposed to be open,  they lost a lot of business because of it. 4.  If you’re going to have live music, which is great! How are you going to handle the noise.  Water carries sound!!  Years ago there was a large problem with the live music at this venue, All the local residents complained about the noise coming from here.  And last but not least …. how are they going to even make it in the spot? What’s going to set them apart for all the other failed bars. I don’t see this lasting long  

Sorry, comment time is over.
