The Hideout opened on March 24, 2005. Owners Greg Lundgren and Jeff Scott had in mind a different kind of bar and set forth to make their dream a reality. With virtually no past experience in bar operation, they approached it from the eyes of patrons – what kind of bar would they want to hang out in?
Well, it had to be dark. And the drinks would have to be top-notch – hand squeezed juice even. It would have to have a little glamor – Seattle needed to grow out of its college years and at least pretend to have some style and culture. Yeah, make it look old. No white plastic or energy drinks. Make it a place where you can talk with your friends. Make it a place where the bartender knows your name and you are not embarrassed to go there by yourself. Make it a place you are proud to take your out-of-town friends to.
Currently we have 101 artworks on display from 90 artists. (Feb 2023)
74 of those artworks are available for purchase.
We rehang the North Wall roughly 3 times a year.
We publish a magazine style catalog for each rehang and periodically when needed. You can find these behind the bar or order them online at Blurb.
Artworks are curated by Jeremy Buben
