Fried chicken dinner knocked my socks off and the coleslaw is so yummy. Their chicken wings are the shit too.
Dark, sexy, punk rock, delicious. Seriously one of the best bars in Seattle. The twilight on cherry might be better, but may not stay that way.
Interesting that my review seems to have disappeared. I go to their other two restaurants and they are great, the Rainier location needs to get it together. I keep giving them a try but they just never seem to hit the even the lowest bar. See my photo of the shortest pour in Seattle.
Everything is delicious and the staff is super friendly! Slightly reduced selection on the menu compared to the one on Cherry, but no diminishment in the experience.
I've been about a dozen times now. I really really want to like this place as I frequent Twilight on cherry but I can't. The drinks are hit and miss and the food every time has been mediocre at best. The last time I ordered a burger the cook put jalapeños instead of pickles on it. So sad given how good their other 2 places a
Cute place with pictures from back in the day. Food was good. Music was fun
Late 50's lounge vibe in FULL EFFECT here, with top notch tots too! Yeah, this is the "Lounge" vibe you're looking for. 😁
A dive bar with surprisingly good bar food.
Great food great service.... Prices better then most places stop in for the great food
Delicious ginormous cheese balls and marinara! Yum! Happy Hour from 4-7.

Great Seattle bar in Hillman City
full bar, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and surprisingly delicious pub grub! I wish they offered some food portions that are a little more, er, human sized (the food is REALLY big). but whatevs. my husband and I love this place. it has definitely made it into heavy rotation for "treat-yo-self" nights. Downtown Hillman City is really turning into a great destination, and I'm so happy that Twilight has joined us!
Their food is fantastic for bar food. Good use of former Union bar space. I'm glad it stayed a bar in the neighborhood. Chill vibe, some TV's, good spot.
Very friendly neighborhood bar. Visited during the week and the bartender was very friendly. I would give five stars based on service but the food and drinks need a bit of work. I ordered the fried chicken and it's a huge order. I mean I'm sure I got about 15 wings. I was so excited until I bit into them. Super bland and could only taste the flour coating. Just some extra salt and pepper and they would be good. I ordered a Manhattan and a Hennessy and ginger beer. The Manhattan was good but the Hennessy and ginger beer was flat and way too sweet from the mix they use. I definitely will be back but hoping for a better experience next time because I loved the vibe.
We went on a Friday night, it was full but not too packed. Ordered food and beer at the bar. Big, messy, delicious burgers and sandwiches. Great onion rings. Not a huge selection of beers on tap, quality over quantity. Would 100% go back.
Twilight Lounge, along with it's sister bar The Neighbor Lady, are probably two of my favorite bars in Seattle. While house sitting in Hillman City recently I was happy to see that there was a new Twilight Exit opened up about a half mile of where I was staying- score!!!!! This particular location, per the lovely bartender, had only been opened up for a couple of months; while they may still be waiting on some of the final finishing touches (ordering more free birthday steins), the bar itself is still cute, homely, and has the standard really good bar food I've come to expect from it's sister locations. This location is on the smaller side, but it's well laid out and still has a spacious bar and plenty of tables. Beer on tap are from local breweries, and you may find it on the IPA heavy side, but that's the norm in these parts.
Anyone who says this is a gentrificating™ bar is dumb. Twilight exit has been a Seattle institution in the central district for a long time. I'm sorry you miss Union Bar but I highly doubt you are actually part of a labor Union. Accept that things change, support your local bars, and grow up. Join me for a drink here anytime! Great drinks and food!
