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

We had the drinks and the small bites during happy hour and it was exquisite- we ordered the elote and the cheese fries.
