#1343 #S807 - Julia's on Broadway, Seattle - 1/17/2011

 Julia's is over the top gay Broadway, with drag shows, portraits of Barbara Steisand and Lady Gaga, and cocktails named "Totally Gay" and "Getting Married AKA Stupid."  This location has hosted a bar since at least 1939, when it was the Checkerboard Tavern.  In 1945 it was purchased by the great Husky runningback and longtime NFL player and re-named "Ernie Steele's," maintaining the name of the "Checkboard Room" for the bar.  From 1991 through 2001 it was Ileen's.

300 Broadway E, Seattle, WA 98102 - (206) 860-1818
Est. 2002; Building constructed: 1909
