Highway 99 Blues Club

Seattle Weekly's Description

They're serious enough about the blues, but at Highway 99 Blues Club, they like a good old-fashioned party, too. Depending on the night, you'll run into zydeco, rockabilly, folk, funk, traditional blues, or rock-edged blues at this borderline enormous brick-walled basement nightclub. A bank of pool tables and a big fireplace surround the stage, and a wall of smart black-and-white photographs captures the images of the nation's blues-hued past. The gorgeous 34-foot bar, made of recycled parts and offering specialty cocktails like the Muddy Waters Mudslide and The Blind Lemon Jefferson Drop, is about as nice to belly up to as anything in town.

    Pulled pork is phenomenal. Great bar staff. Mark, Murphy, and Courtney will always take care of you.

  • Eric G. on 01/11/13

    There are a lot of old white people dancing poorly at this place. Good music though. Drinks and food are sub par.

  • Not to busy!!

  • david h. on 11/12/11

    Food and music is great! I'll def make a reservation next time and ask for Courtney. I don't know who my server is but she is one of the worst I have ever had. Astoundingly terrible service from her
