A Great Place to Hang Out This Summer

posted by on June 15 at 12:17 PM


I don’t want to curse or ruin this place, but man, I had the pleasure of hanging out at the revamped Lloyd’s Rocket at the intersection(?) of Boren and Yesler and 12th last night: Lively patio, friendly wait staff, live jazz, flirty, loud, roomy, and mind-boggling for Seattle: Integrated!

This is the place that used to be a boarded up eyesore gas station.

I had a tasty chicken sandwich.

I've been passing by that place lately, and I must say it looks great. And integrated bars/restaurants are so rare in Seattle. Lemme know if you want to go hang out this weekend!

Indeed. The patio is lovely, especially on live-music nights. Typically I find live music in restaurants oppressive but Lloyd's outdoor set-up makes it sweet.

Now it probably won't be so integrated anymore with this announcement. All the kids will follow and yes, ruin.....

Oh great. Damn you Feit! Now that place is going to be ruined for me. My little hidden treasure is going to be taken over by by hipsters. Couldn't just keep it quiet?

You and Charles must co-own this place.

The true hipsters do not Slog. It happens too early in the day for them. And involves constructing written sentences.

didn't Charles give this a backhanded compliment about a year ago?

I'm sure the sandwich was great, but can you wash it down with a beer or an alcoholic drink of sorts?

If there is jazz, there must be booze. And hopefully a nice sparkling wine.

Where there is jazz, there must be booze.

And hopefully a nice sparkling wine.

See, I said constructing...

Posted by Mark Mitchell | June 15, 2007 1:03 PM

Yes. I had a vodka drink.

Posted by Josh Feit | June 15, 2007 1:16 PM

There is no alcohol, or food , or music. You really should stay away from this place! This place actually does not even exist.

Um, don't you ever go to Fremont?

Posted by Will in Seattle | June 15, 2007 1:22 PM

Yes. I go to Fremont a lot. Integrated? I'm laughing at you Will in Seattle. Have you ever been outside of Seattle?

Posted by Josh Feit | June 15, 2007 1:39 PM

Integrated? Meaning like rid of Jim Crow laws... or gays and straights integrated? I'm so confused.

Posted by call me dumb | June 15, 2007 1:48 PM

add another "Integrated?" to the pile.

Posted by josh | June 15, 2007 3:11 PM

Mind-boggling for Seattle? HA! That must be the furtherest South you've ever been.

Next time you're there on the patio, look towards the mountain. All that urban area in the middle foreground? Quite integrated.

holy shit! chaz wrote an article that didnt suck! I remember that article!

Oh yeah, Seattle isn't fucking diverse still.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | June 15, 2007 5:54 PM

um, boydman, that link is to an article focusing on Southcenter Mall as being integrated.....and anyway, what the deal with the defensive knee jerk cheerleader-y reaction whenever someone says anything true about Seattle, if it is percevied as even slightly "critical" or "negative"??
Look, chill, Seattle is mighty white and there are not a lot of clubs where there are blacks and whites. So deal.
