BIZNOTE: New plan for former licensing location

The “for lease” sign has been down for a while at the ex-West Seattle Licensing location (5048 California SW), but it took a liquor-license application to give a hint at its future. We talked briefly today with one of the applicants, who are seeking a license under the business name Till Dawn. It’s going to be a café, he said, but they’re still a few weeks away from going public with details. (The license application is in the “snack bar” category, which means bottled/canned beer for on-site consumption.) They’re hoping to open by year’s end. The storefront’s been vacant for almost two years.

    Will it be open from dusk Till Dawn? We don’t have many nighttime options other than bars!

      It’s always shocked me how much of this town shuts down at 8pm. Before the pandemic anyway. I used to be a big night owl and I found it very frustrating. More late night food please!

    That’s fun, a cute little cafe!  Cheers and prosperity :)

    I really hope they do well, but it’s kind of an isolated location and parking is rather scarce, unless people want to park in the pay lot at RiteAid.

Sorry, comment time is over.
