Dead Line was born from our team’s passion for service, cocktails, cuisine and really good lighting!

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.

Our bartenders build traditional ideas into modern offerings with unique ingredients and methods. A contemporary, exploratory style inspires our technique and results in cocktails that are always distinctive.  Our South American inspired menu maintains the familiarity of the Pacific Northwest with a focus on local, sustainable products.  Our chefs create dishes that complement our drinks to form a single, cohesive culinary experience.

Building community inside our space is important to us, but so is the community just outside our doors. We chose Pioneer Square because of each team member’s close bond with the neighborhood through years of working, socializing and living here. We consider it a privilege to work in this character-filled neighborhood.
