Great delivery tonight! Burger, chicken sandwich and tots all delicious. Called in and it was easy to order.

Fantastic food and they do takeout right now to reduce safety risks from covid. Ordered a Bacon burger and Ryan's pickled blue burger with fries and a monster load of tater tots. Delicious burgers and no joke a great amount of well cooked sides! Ready super quick and place was spotless with one really nice bartender who stood far back from the takeout order. Loved this place for drinks when we aren't in this holding pattern but takeout food right is a great boost of happiness that's affordable. Good stuff and thank you!

Almost as good as Twilight Exit. Just needs pinball!

Bryan Zandi

Cool place, good vibe, friendly staff and even customers, good service and reasonable prices. The only downside was the place being a little bit cold!

Straight up tragic! I'm interested to see how long a place like this stays open in a 98118 neighborhood considering the bartender/waiter was not only incompetent and aloof but also straight up racist. It wasn't worth it to make a scene but I hope other people of color see this review before they make the trip over to this trashy dive bar. POC's, if you choose to visit this place don't be put off when the guy starts enunciating his words with hand gestures, it's not you - he's just an idiot.

Not quite as good as the OG Twilight Exit, but still a great little dive. It's got the paintings of boats, eclectic pendant lights, and strong pours as it's namesake in a smaller, more convenient (for me) package. Same great menu, too.

Chicken tenders and tator tots. Cold beer. So yummy. Out of town guests loved it too.

Drew Johnson

The atmosphere, service, food, and prices were all great.

Definitely get the fried mozzarella. Yeah, it's mostly just a pub, but the food it quite good!

If you're not a friend of the bartender, it can feel a little cold. However, I see a lot of warmth towards of the bartender. The liquor selection is great, the food is very good and Fairly priced.

Great food and nice peaple there,

Lucas Vidana

Great neighborhood joint. Nice chill lighting. Great bar food. Affordable. Mixed drinks and beer both served by awesome bartenders. Good place for a casual date or with a friend. Not a bro bar.

Good drinks good atmosphere

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 jalapeí±os 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. 😁

Great Seattle bar in Hillman City

Bonnie F.

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!

Fabiola Arvizu

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.

Anne R.

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.

Sarah Hansen

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.

Greg Bem

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.
