Dead Line

Cocktail Lounge and Kitchen

Pioneer Square - Seattle

Our Story

Dead Line was born of our team’s passion for service, elevated cocktails and local, seasonal cuisine!

Our cross-street, Yesler Way, was historically known as ‘the dead line’ separating the privileged north of the city from the poverty and vice to the south.

 Our name represents the space where all walks of life interacted; grim reality and humility entwined with privilege and opulence. This contrast underlies our mission – Provide an environment of elegance and class while maintaining authenticity and respect for Pioneer Square’s past and present.

What Our Guests Have to Say

"I have been here a couple of times and have always been impressed on the passion of the cooks, changing seasonal menu and the service/attention to detail. Great date place that is also affordable for the quality."
- Bryan G
"I originally decided to stop into this bar because the pictures of the decor were amazing -- I was definitely not disappointed! But even further than that, I was pleasantly surprised by my exceptional experience there."
- Laura Petracio
The food is excellent! The service is really good. And it's a small but lovely spot. From the fun apps (popcorn and empitas) to yummy food (fish and chorizo taco's) to naughty but yummy potatoes. Delicious.
- Harold Z
Awesome spot in pioneer square with great food, interesting drinks,good service and a cool vibe. Came in with a group on a Saturday night and pretty much ordered most of the menu to share.
