... But is not your average dance club/bar. This place is the place to go if you just want to be yourself and you want to let others be themselves. You will find all types at the rebar but nobody is pretentious or too high on themselves. Wide range of Dance music from Hip-Hop, dance and house. Average pricing and always a good time

Venue doesn't help in anyway to help promote shows or events!!! Spent much money on venue rental $120 for early evening slot or 15% which ever is greater and personal advertising... poor results.

Bad parking area... VERY limited street parking... paid parking lot next to venue.

No art on walls

Staff VERY Unfriendly

Staff uncommunicative when using both email and phone.

Hard to tell if the venue is open.

Re-bar is the best theater because it isn't a theater - it's a bar. They do what every theater in Seattle strives to do: present some of Seattle's funnest, cutting edge, and original theater - without pretense or stuffiness.
The Reason they succede where others fail is because it is a bar first and foremost; so when you go to theater at Re-bar and you find yourself, mid-beer, watching a great piece of theater, it totally catches you off gaurd; all of a sudden you can't pull yourself away to refill the beer you didn't realize you had already finnished. And they do all kinds of different events and plays so I beleive that, at some point, every body will see something they like at Re-bar; be it rock musicals like Hedwig and the Angry Inch to the ridiculousness of The Brown Derby Series to artsy rock/concept shows like the band Awesome's play/concert "Delaware" to the campy sensibilty of choral ensemble Captain Smartypants, or maybe the one-night-only monthly events like Burlesque shows or the newest craze, The Seattle Spelling Bee - what ever it is it'll go well with booze!
It says something that On The Boards, an incredibly a well funded and nationally respected performing arts center, has picked up at several shows and artists that made their debut at not so well funded nor internationally respected Re-bar. So go to Re-bar to see the best local talent in the coolest shows (sure every now and again you get a lemon, but at worst you have drink and have something to talk about afterwards between dancing to that nights DJ). You never know what you'll get at Re-bar, I guess that's part of the fun, but I have found that more than often you'll see a gem that you wouldn't have seen anywhere else in Seattle!
I love this place and think of it as one of Seattle's character defining places!

Pros: Theater, events, friends of Dorothy and Ellen

Cons: No free parking lot, at the bottom of Capitol Hill (a walk up if starting a "hop"), dance nights have a small cover ($3- $5)

This place is really fun. You can let your hair down without worrying about how you are dressed or who you are. They have great shows that will make you laugh your booty off - always entertaining. The DJs are great, mixing styles and genres seamlessly. Beats, old school, hip hop, gay dance house, whatever. It is the most mixed crowd in town and always really fun.

Prince and associated artists go toe-to-toe on the dance floor against Michael and the Jackson family during this ultimate dance party! The face-off always promises to be a dance marathon - "Black Sweat" takes a swing at "PYT (Pretty Young Thing)," only to be pounded by "Wanna Be Starting Somethin," which had better watch it's back when "Kiss" comes around. This event was conceived four years by Bomb Hip-Hop who have successfully produced many of these parties in San Francisco and even one in Bend (Oregon) last year. "As a concept for a DJ battle, Prince vs. Michael is brilliant," writes SF Weekly's Hiya Swanhuyser. DJ Dave Paul mixes album cuts, remixes, rare tracks and classics from his extensive record collection; featuring music from Prince, Michael, The Time, The Jackson 5, Sheila E., Janet Jackson, Vanity 6 and many more. 3/23/06

This is one of Seattle institutions for dance clubs it is the opposite of pretentious and no matter who you are you will fit right in, as the crowd is always diverse. They are Gay friendly but dont take that to mean solely gay, there is a very mixed crowd many ages, races cultures and sexualities. The bar often has special shows before they open up for dancing they are always alternative entertainment and always a lot of fun. The drinks are just so so but worth the price as it is a good deal for most drinks The Beers are good but really go for the fun, excellent DJs great music and fun dancing. Sunday nights is my personal favorite always a happy crowd and you will feel welcomed.

PROS: Fun Fun Fun Dancing, Open and Welcoming
CONS: Ok the decore could be updated

Re-Bar is definitely a favorite; the service is friendly, crowd lively, and the music is far better than most places I've been to.

For a good time, go to Re-bar! Every night is different, from the theater to the dj's: house music to hip hop to punk rock to drag queens. Re-bar now has a full bar, with hard liquor! Nice people work there, and nice people go there. It's a landmark!
