  The Croc
by Sunshine64

RE Opened in March 2009. Haven't been, but peeked in the windows and they have definitely remodeled. Hope that includes the bathrooms :)

CLOSED abruptly in December 2007. But there is hope. Apparently a group has applied to take over the Croc's liquor license..... http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/musicnightlife/2004120939_croc12.html

Interesting decor, casual, Live Music! This is one of my favorite bars in Seattle.

When you enter the Croc from 2nd Ave you are in the Cafe section, where you can order food. It's decent bar/cafe food. I had lunch there once and it was pretty good. I hear they have a good breakfast, too.

To your left is the live music area. Most of the time only this part of the venue requires that you pay admission, but for bigger events, such as Jason Mraz (before he was so popular) required a ticket to even go in the door.

The main bar is in the back. This is where you drink before the show, or if you're not going to the show. There's also a small window in the music section, but it's cash-only.

We once saw Peter Buck (from REM), whose ex-wife owns The Croc having a couple of coctails at the back bar at the Croc.

Dress Code: Pretty much anything you want.
