#732 - Mission, Seattle (West Seattle) - 11/28/2008

Update: The owners of Mission announced that it would close Feb 17, 2024 due to "rising operational costs, changes in the economy, and an evolving hospitality landscape." 

Another lovely West Seattle bar.

Historical notes:  The building currently housing Mission on California Ave was constucted in 1924,   although it probably did not contain the upper floor at the time. The Seattle Daily Times notes a noise complaint at a bar owned by George Willey in this location in November 1933. It starts appearing in city guides under James Robinson or his "Jim's Tavern" in 1934, continuing into the 70s.  In 1980 it is the "Rainy City Tavern," in 1990 the "Caddyshack Tavern,"and by the early 2000s "Lizzard Lounge."
