If you're in Greenlake and looking for a party - look no further than the Hen. Live music, serious drinking and boisterous karaoke are all part of the equation.
Western dancing at its best in Seattle. We love this place and come pretty regularly to eat, drink and dance to live music. The floor is often packed, but that's because the music is so good. Another big plus for me -- no candles! I'm allergic to candle smoke in most bars and get headaches for days afterwards, but not here. The air is pretty fresh and the people are having fun! Us too!
Karaoke night – The DJ likes little girls half his age because they are the only ones that sing over and over again!!!!! I used to go there while going to UW but it has really slowed down. The bar staff are cool and the place is OK just needs better management over karaoke and the door.
Wow the Bartender thinks she works at Goldman Sachs – This place is a kent wanna be-country bar in Green Lake cannot pass for a transvestite status-they serve barely 21 happily but and in plastic cups-if you have half a brain you are on to the whip it's wanna be ratcitygirl angst angry about her night job and her unwanted child.....this place is a joke-unless you just turned 21 an have fake id!
Keeping it Country – Assuming you avoid Wednesday nights [Frat-Karaoke], then this place is an amazing dive bar. If you grab a couple friends, want to drink an American beer, and listen to country music while talking in hushed voices, this place is *amazing*.
Wildest Seattle karaoke I've seen – I thought it would be all twangy country music here but was pleasantly surprised that all kinds of music are sung here. A big stage, fun, young crowd and cheap drinks, what more could you want? Place gets packed by about 11, I came early so I could sing a little more. The DJ plays dance music between singers which keeps things moving. Wednesday is the big night here although they just started a Monday night karaoke show too.
Rude and Grumpy – Wednesday nights have gone down hill. that 6ft. 5 friendly door guy is gone. WHY did they let him go? He was the only friendly face and the first one you see when you go in. He welcomed you and always encouraged everyone to have good time. The guy now at the door is a rude and very unfriendly. Was that a customer service move.. to get a rude guy at the door to greet paying customers? Bring back the big guy!
The 2 bartenders? The dark haired one is tooooo busy trying to be cute so she is way to slow. She works Tuesday nights also and getting a drink when her friends are there is impossible.
Weekend bartenders are kinda grumpy and bitchy and again where is the big friendly guy at the door. Makes ya wonder when they keep rude, grumpy people and get rid of friendly, nice staff. Are they trying to loose business.
Find a new place to do your Kareoke!
GOOD TIMES! – I have been coming here for the past 4 years. The new owners have cleaned the place up and finally got rid of the unfriendly beast on wheels bartender! Now they have replaced with two women that serve em up fast. It used to take at least 20 minutes to stand in line to get a drink. Karaoke host Nathan has gone on to pursue his music. The new host is good but definitely not as much fun to look at. LOTS of 20 somethings and a handful of older (40s) regulars. Good times, good sound system and dance music is bumping throughout in between singers. Friendly doorman all 6'5" of him! Come check it out!
The Hen – I started coming here when i turned 21 in 2002. I have been a regular for a long time, but not even half of how long Connie has worked there. She is a mainstay as well known as Michelle at Earls on the Ave. And unfortunately the new ownership does not want to stay going in a direction taht involves her. My buddies and I that have been going there for years will no longer. We will stay awy from there like the plague.
Authentic country bar is loads of fun, even if you can't tell Hank Williams Sr. from Jr. – In Short
Burgundy leather chairs and booths lend an old-style feel to this unassuming Greenlake bar featuring classic country music, dancing and karaoke. Patrons are mostly down-to-earth, with a smattering of college kids on weekends. Drinks and food are as straight-forward as the atmosphere. Towering burgers, homemade soups, triple-decker sandwiches and a chef salad are typical fare. Breakfast offerings include chicken fried steak, omelettes and steak and eggs.
Better than American Idol – If you were thinking about staying home Wednesday night to watch TV, think again! The Little Red Hen or as regulars call it, "the HEN" is the place to be, and packs more entertainment value than anything you're going to see on channel 5.
