The only lesbian bar in Seattle, it's a good option for meeting up with folks and hanging out if you want to be around lesbians.

Capitol Hill's one and only lesbian bar is open to all. Thats about it "open" !! my experience at this one and only lesbian bar was a disappointment, it is definitely a clique lesbian bar, if you're not in the "A" list, you're ignored by the "members". i'll go to another gay/lesbian bar any night!! besides i'm a budweiser gurl... what is this Select budweiser???

Story time: Years ago my son and his friend went to the wild rose and were treated like second class citizens. Afterwards, I went there for a beer and to see what they were complaining about. I wanted to get sick. Real dirty place and prejudice as all get out. Women who hate men. I am a man and I don't hate women. I like them. There neat! The ladies should not hate people because they are different. Me? I have never met a lady that I did not like.

Pros: Great area and a great experience

Cons: Not so good in the parking area

It's unfortunate that the only girl bar in Seattle has now opened up "band" nights that attract crowds into a small bar that is not set up for hosting bands. The staff is rude, service is poor, and their community support is aweful. They charge a cover, which is ridiculous for a "pre-funk" or hangout atmosphere, but they stay in business as the only girl bar in Seattle. Someone please open up a girl bar, so the only choice is not the Rose!

it is like awalking into a seedy tavern on skid road. it smells, the furniture is old, and as far as trendy or chic, you would think it was a mens leather hook up bar rather than the only lesbian bar in town. the place is packed every weekend, but the owners dont spend any money to make it nice for the girls. I have to admit if you get used to the bad service and the ugly tavern like feel, and really get to know the people who go there, because it is the only lesbian bar, you will actually have some fun, but as far as a review for the bar itself, the bathroom is so small a toddler would feel cramped in the stalls, you cant even find the tiny lil sink to wash your hands, and the locks have been broken on the stalls for years! If your a femme, put your makeup on at home, and dont plan on getting to the mirror all night without being beat up by the door! If your a regular dont expect to have them treat you like family, in fact the longer you go there and spend your money the less service you will get over time, youll be lucky to actually get a drink on a Saturday night............ but like I said, because it is the only lesbian bar,,,,,,,,,, and if your single ,,,,,,,,,, it is the place to be!

Pros: the only lesbian bar in town

Cons: all of the above

Came up from Portland to visit a friend. This bar was pretty lame. The service was the only thing that was great about this bar. The music was lame for a Saturday night. There were no shows. The bar was practically empty. Really, I wasn't impressed to be honest. I was hoping Seattle might have more to offer than Portland, but the answer was a big fat - NOPE!!!

Yes the Wild Rose has many cute women, but did you know the WR has some of the best pub grub in Seattle? The Four Cheese Hero is to die for. They have rotating homemade soups, plus great drink specials.

I believe it's clique, not click.

I?ve been here a couple times (with lesbian friends) and in my experience some of the women that go here are not welcoming to guys. Contrast this with a gay bar (welcoming to everyone) and you?ll understand what I mean. It?s probably a pretty decent spot if you?re a woman, but for guys, be prepared ? people will be rude to you. I?d suggest going somewhere else.

Cons: Not a very friendly bar

The best things about the Rose is that it is where I met the love of my life, and the bartenders are great.

I just looked at the calendar for March 07 and there is only one DJ night. Hey, we girls want to dance and have fun with our special girl or meet our special girl, whatever the case may be.

My girl and I were going to Traxx in Kent because every Friday and Saturday or special ocassion there was a DJ and dancing. A couple of weeks ago my love and I went to the Rose on a Friday night because I guess Traxx is out of buisness, so we drove to the Rose with a friend and the entertainment was a few girls playing pool and a tacky juke box. No one talks to anyone unless they know each other from some where else. We were always treated kindly at Traxx and I miss it already.

The Rose has so much potential and could be a blast and a very cool place to hang out, but I guess we will be going to the guys bars to dance and have a good time.

If you want help ask us gurls(girls) we would love to make suggestions, put out a questionaire on a dead Friday or Saturday night.

First suggestions: Get a DJ for every Friday and Saturday night, you can't go wrong and update, update.

Pros: There are girls there

Cons: they won't talk to you and there is no entertainment

The Wild Rose could use a total make-over and a trip into the 21st century! There are so many beautiful women and such phenominal music our there today that they should tap into to it to create an environment that thrives on the beauty of women of all age groups. The crowd tends to be very young and clickish and the music rings out of that dreadful jukebox. Change is great and it brings great success! Mellow, mellow, mellow, who wants mellow besides some drab women! We want fun and fun women and an exciting evironment that we talk to our friends about throughout the country. L's travel to find this kind of fun such as Palm Springs! We need that kind of environment in our neck of the woods! It's an ok place, but could be better. Think outside the box girls! If you create it . . . they will come!

Pros: It the only Women's Bar

Cons: The atmosphere is Old School

.

This bar is well known since it is the only lesbian bar in town (there are many other venues that have lesbian nights or are lesbian friendly, but this is the only one that is only a lesbian bar). Seattle is crying ourt for more because many dykes grow tired of this place that always have the same crowd. However, it is nice to grab a drink and hang out for awhile before you go on to somewhere else. Good people watching and cruising, but it gets old.

I am not lesbian but I decided to have a few beers and a meal at the Wild Rose with a friend. I was very impressed with the relaxed atmosphere as well as the fantastic service. Great food, too.
I am definitely going back.

Pros: Friendly, Mellow and relaxed

Cons: Capitol Hill parking

happy hour prices rock and the drinks are strong. exactly the place i wanna be after a long day's work on a soggy, cold winter day in seattle. no uninvited small talk, no formalities. definitely not a pick up spot... just an easy, comfortable after-work/laid back kinda spot.

I love the no-nonsense style of the Rose. And no matter what your type, it's great to have a bar to call home. I go to the Rose after work especially on Taco Tuesdays when I'm looking to relax.

Pros: Food, Women

I have read the negative reviews listed here, and I just want to say that I have always loved the Rose and will continue to stand by it. It was there when I first came out twenty some odd years ago and it is still there today. Next time I am in town I will no doubt stop by. I only hope JoAnn is still the owner.

i guess if you need your servers to be phony and to suck up for their tips, then you might want to go somewhere else. if you're comfortable ordering a drink by yourself and cutting your own meat, you can come here and expect a real and relaxed atmosphere. it's a refreshing change of pace.

The Wildrose is really the only lesbian bar in town, so it serves its purpose ok. It's small and usually a pretty chilled atmosphere. It can get crowded on the weekends, and it's usually the same crowd everytime. The bar staff is nice enough. Karaoke there is fun and well-attended. The food's ok for bar food. Their house salad dressing is fabulous as are the potato wedges.

I thought the service was okay, but the food is very lackluster and the atmosphere is young, butch and blue-collar. The decor is, ... well, there really isn't any. If you'd describe yourself as older than about 40, upscale or professional, or okay, I'll say it, straight-appearing and desiring same, it's a disappointing experience.

Well I can say from experience that the Wildrose can be a good place to meet fellow lesbians. However, with the drama, lousy service, only one pool table, it could use major improvement! The best night to go to there is on Wednesdays..the crowd is more diverse and friendlier...The crowd tends to be younger which has it's drawbacks..If the wildrose staff would be nicer and more customer service oriented it would make a huge difference..Considering the fact that we're not in high school any more...cut out the stupid clicks...and be more accepting...

Cons: , size, only lesbian bar!

The Wild Rose could be so much more if they got some better bartenders and waitress that were more customer service oriented. They were very unfriendlly and did not make returns to us to see if we needed more drinks or anything. Believe me, I didnt tip well at this place. I dont want to be on vactaion and have poor service. Anyways, I loved everything else about the bar, the food was great, and the kareoke was very intertaining. Would I return to this bar...probably yes, I would have to have alot of patience, the crowd and the food would draw me back, but not the service. No tips here!!!

people have always bitched about this bar. the staff, customers, and the patrons. granted the staff may have off days, and it may be a little hard to break through the initial wall of the customers, i for one have never gone to a bar to seek validation from the bartenders or the customers. truth be told, the wildrose has always been there for me and, i will always be there for it.
