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.
I've been about a dozen times now. I really really want to line 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 are.
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!
It’s okay. Not as fun as the Twilight Exit...maybe the atmosphere will get better with time. The Union Bar crowd is gone. Please do something about the decor! It’s ugly IKEA lighting and not much else.
This place is just what the neighborhood needs--a friendly bar with good food, great music, and strong drinks. I've been going to the original Twilight for years and am so happy they opened a spot so close to my house. I was very pleased with the service and the vibe, and best of all, it's dog friendly! I'm sure we'll be back many times.
Great south end spot for cold beer, stiff drinks and delicious food. The classic burger with house made 1000 Island dressing is a welcome break from the fancy shmancy burgers you find everywhere. Enjoy a drink with friends or fly solo and make some new ones.
Compared to the Union Bar, this place lacks almost all character. Decorations and overall atmosphere of the place is lacking. Obviously the neighborhood has been gentrifying for a while, but the placement of this bar, which seems like it lacks any joy whatsoever, is taking the area to a new level.
Very welcome addition to a great area. Wonderful variety of booze, great beer selection and amazing food. The tots are a must try in this place! Good, reasonably priced with a SUPER nice and welcoming bartender. What else cam you ask for???
Great place, awesome food
Waitress was super nice and helpful and friendly and blah blah blah! They're definitely in their opening stages with their partially curated menu but the kegs were fresh and the Jameson was strong. Overall impressed even though we miss oh so dearly Union Bar.
This place is awesome. The menu is very similar to The Twilight Exit. Try the peanut butter bacon burger it's amazing! The staff are also super friendly and experienced. Great people to interact with. I wish there were more games like pinball, but the space isn't as big as the other location.
