#1251 #S756 - Twilight Exit, Seattle - 10/7/2010
I've previously noted my affection for any bar with an alley entrance, and the Twilight Exit builds on that with a funky, retro interior and a large, beach-themed back patio (in the middle of the Central District, no less). The drinks are very much the basics, but the attraction is the atmosphere, with vintage lamps covering the ceiling, kitschy art on the walls and objects laminated into the table tops.
Owner Stephan Mollman was force to move out of the previous location at 2020 E Madison due to redevelopment plans by new property owners. He battled with the local school district for a bit over hours, and eventually reached a compromise, which explains why the Twilight opens only at 4:00pm most days.
