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

5 stars for this cozy intimate space with THE BEST HAPPY HOUR AND TEAM in Seattle. This is a historic original brick space with a trendy vibe. Stop in solo and leave with friends. Bring your coworkers. Bring your friends. Bring your parents. Seriously. They have a really cool loft space which is perfect for events. I’ve seen corporate meet & greets, social clubs and girls night out here.Stop in before or after the Underground Tour, on your way to the stadium, or on your way back from the waterfront.This place got me through a dreary winter thanks to their delicious cocktails that rotate through the seasons and menu that is consistently updated. My favorite drink is bees knees and I always get the quesadilla.Artisanal cocktails? Check. Filling and flavorful happy hour dishes? Check. Happy hour every day? Check. Trendy photogenic space where you can hear the people you’re with? Check.I am a die hard fan of Deadline and am so glad it’s in the neighborhood.

I love it when a shot-in-the-dark punt pays off. We weren't even sure it was open, because the interior is cool and dark. Staff were super friendly, we chose Crispy Chicken Sandwiches for brunch - what a great call! The hot sauce was a revelation (duck fat is the secret ingredient) and the toasted brioche bun was terrific as well - decent structure and just sweet enough to provide the right flavor balance.Very cool bar, we will return!
