Jazz and more at the Pacific Room: Welcoming a new West Seattle Blog sponsor

The Pacific Room on Alki Beach is more than a restaurant and bar. That’s their message as they join the WSB sponsor team:

The Pacific Room, which opened in June, is offering a big slate of live music. Not just “come for the food/drinks, stay for the music,” but also ticketed performances like Seattle’s legendary jazz singer Greta Matassa this Saturday (November 2nd). The Seattle jazz scene recently lost Tula’s; the Pacific Room intends to help fill the void.

You can watch the Pacific Room‘s calendar for not just music but other types of performances too, both ticketed and free; among the offerings on the way are spoken-word performances and a singer-songwriter contest. As the holidays near, watch for word of a New Year’s Eve celebration and a night of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” music performed live.

The Pacific Room is also offering other reasons to come to the beach – such as the food! Not just the regular menus, but also a special “comfort food” menu on Monday nights is one. Special culinary events have already included a three-course meal that benefited Fare Start.

The Pacific Room is at 2808 Alki SW. The restaurant is open for dinner 7 nights a week; see the music calendar here.

    So happy for the new business!  Looking forward to hearing some live jazz!  Good for them, I wish them the best of luck! One note…and this is HALF in jest, so don’t get too bent out of shape.  But…um, please rework that poster.   I know whoever did that was just thinking “50s” and “nostalgia” so they showed 2 young white teens at a soda fountain.  But given those years generally included not allowing black people to sit at the same seats, is a little….almost creepy now.  Especially if they’re celebrating being a classic jazz venue, which has a significant (if not majority) percentage of people of color behind the music.  Perhaps a poster of Sarah Vaughan, Billy Holiday, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, or John Coltrane would have gotten the mood right more than 2 white kids at a soda fountain LOL.  I’m honestly not trying be uber-sensitive or PC, just honestly noting the first thing I thought looking at it.  It’s a fine cute poster, otherwise, but…

      This doesn’t counter your entire critique but please note the poster is not for the jazz series. Haven’t seen that one if it exists; I believe they are focusing on promoting the specific artists, like Greta Matassa this weekend. – TR

    We love Pacific Room. We were there at the Grand Opening and many times since. It’s so nice to have talented jazz musicians playing at a local restaurant. Everyone we’ve seen play there has been top- knotch, and not snoozy or boring at all (so not to worry if you may think jazz is only for old folks). The first musician we saw there was sporting a Mohawk and was amazing. Awesome drinks, food, and music! We will definitely be back regularly,  even throughout the winter. They’ve got two fireplaces and warm lighting that makes for a comfy ambience on a cold night.

    OMG, I am SOOOO excited about the Charlie Brown event.  This is a do not miss with Juicy Gonzales — saw the performance 2 years ago at the Intiman Theatre and it was one of the THE best concerts I’ve ever been to – that man is an amazing musician who plays the piano with his whole body.  Getting tickets immediately!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place! Perfect ambiance for dinner talk, great food and attentive staff. Thanks for adding music into the mix.  I take all my out-of-town guests here when I want to show them what West Seattle has to offer. I also love stopping by when I’m out strolling Alki on my own. I highly recommend this restaurant! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
