King Cobra News

posted by on January 24 at 14:17 PM

From King Cobra:

As many of you know, there’s a new rock & roll nightclub in town called King Cobra. As of this morning, our liquor license has been approved and we’re on the fast track to get the place all pretty for you and for our special grand opening parties, scheduled for the first week of March. (More on those later). Our stage room is still being properly outfitted for rock and roll, and we’ve still got painting and decorating to do among a myriad of other things.

That said, most of the King Cobra bar and security staff is comprised of your brothers and sisters from Kincora and The Crocodile, all of whom have been out of work for more than a month now. So, while we’re not pretty, we can sell booze and regale you with rock music, and dammit, that’s what we’re gonna do. Starting tomorrow night (Friday, January 25th) at 6pm, we are going to open just the bar for business. We are very much still a work in progress, so “please excuse our dust” and all that (it’s an expression, we’re not really dusty!), but for now please come down to King Cobra this weekend, starting on Friday night, to buy some drinks, tip lots, and to help your local bartenders, bar backs, door guys, and the rest of the team who have been out of work and need your support. We’ll have guest DJs all weekend, and we’ll even have a spread of food during happy hour on Friday (so get there early!).

We will be open 6pm-2am Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. Then, FOR NOW our hours will be 6pm-2am Wednesday through Sunday, closed Mondays and Tuesdays so we can finish getting the place ready to rock.

@1 And when they said "going in a different direction", they meant going straight into the toilet. I have no idea why you lost your job, at least you had writing experience and you knew what you were talking about. I'm sure they told Hannah Levin the same thing.

The Seattle Weekly music section is looking really, really good right now.

Ahh...my new watering hole. I can't wait for this place to get fully operational. Hopefully, King Cobra will give the Capitol Hill scene the much needed shot in the arm for dirty, kick-ass rock. Thanks for posting the news!
