Q Nightclub: a "Glam" and "Chic" New Club For Capitol Hill

Posted by on Mon, Jun 4, 2012 at 10:59 AM

SEATTLE, June 4, 2012 – Q Nightclub will open in a dramatic, converted auto rebuild space at 1426 Broadway at Pike Street in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The 12,000-square-foot club is tentatively slated to open to the public Saturday, September 8, 2012.

Fueled by Seattle’s eclectic music scene and owners who were previously deeply involved in the New York City club scene, Q will give Seattle a space that gets back to the basics of what a club should be about: the best DJ’s on the planet playing on the finest sound system while also having the club act as a laboratory for emerging local musical talent. A club that has stunning interior design and lighting, and provides impeccable service to its customers, is also a must.

“We want to avoid the elitist attitudes of upscale lounges with separate VIP areas, and instead provide our customers with a cohesive, immediate relationship to the DJ, music, people, and the club itself which, ultimately, is the real star here,” says Scott Smith, managing partner of Q.

At Q, everyone is welcome. Open seven days a week, Q will serve as both an intimate lounge in the early evening and a full-blown nightclub later on, with the space easily convertible for their patrons comfort. The club will be able to provide a highly flexible configuration for a vibe appealing to those coming in after work for a cocktail and conversation as much as to those showing up for a night of dancing. [...]

[...] “Our goal has always been to cultivate as broad and eclectic

a customer base as possible, but one that has a matured and

cultivated appreciation for the kind of music we want to be

known for — electronic music.”

With that aim in mind, Q is uncompromising at every level—a bit glam and a bit chic, but still very Seattle casual through and through, with service and presentation that will set Q apart.

An early press release said that Q would have a Funktion 1 speaker array which, if properly tuned and angled, would make it the best soundsystem in the Northwest without peer. I hope this is still the case - Seattle deserves a club with precise sound!

Sound Investment AV will handle the installation of Q’s custom, one of a kind sound system, from legendary UK sound system pioneers, Funktion One, the only one of its caliber on the West Coast. Steve Lieberman, owner of LA’s powerhouse SJ Lighting will handle Q’s state of the art lighting. Both firms are internationally known for their design of clubs and concert tours.
