We hate getting scooped, but the fine folks at West Seattle Blog got the skinny on the news that a new LGBTQ (but all will be welcome) bar and restaurant is opening in West Seattle this summer. The venue, named “OutWest” will occupy the former Westside Pharmacy building at California & Brandon, a bit aways from the main stretch of businesses on California. It’s the first LGBTQ venue in that neighborhood in several years; Guppy’s in the heart of “The Junction” closed a few years back and despite the large numbers of LGBTQ people who live in the area, West Seattle has been surprisingly free of queer specific businesses. Check out Keri DeTore’s post for more details.
A specific opening date has not been announced. We’ll keep you posted….we know the husbears of West Seattle have been keening for their own place to call home closer to their “dens”. You don’t always feel like schlepping to the Hill to have a drink with other like minded souls.
