When the band is great, a memorable night – I like that they got the name Nectar from the fact that it used to be a diaper delivery business. :) Great bands in an intimate venue. Eat before you get here, but get here early if you want a seat. See, be seen, enjoy!
Great place to party – Definitely the best happy hour in Seattle and a great party spot . Found a fantastic deal at this site called Urban Spoils . Check it out !
Great Indoor-Outdoor Lounge – Nectar is a great place to see live music, with amazing viewpoints and top notch indie hip-hop, reggae, and roots options. I've seen The Grouch and Eek-a-Mouse and both times had a great experience with the sound, and crowd (which generally skews younger and more casual). The best feature is the sliding door that opens up to the patio which allows concert-goers to see the live acts from both inside and out. When the weather permits, there is no better place to enjoy the live music experience. The decor is minimalist and their is plentiful seating, but for the most part people are grooving to the music and wouldn't think of sitting down.
Best place to see live bands! – You won't find a better place in Seattle to see live music...every seat in the house is prime! They have a great mix of live bands and funky DJ's. Do yourself a favor and check out Nectar!
Worst customer service – Server didn't give us our change and when we went back to ask for a box she had the nerve to give us attitude and talk back. What she didn't know was that we hadn't finished ordering and hadn't tipped her yet. Eat before entering and only order drinks from the bar. There is a good restuarant called Brauers across the street from Nectar; heading West.
getting better all the time – they are starting to get better music acts---seattle needs to support this bar---great pool table upstairs...good vibe of the place...outdoor deck is good...they get a lot of hot girls...one of the better places in seattle
This fresh Fremont club buzzes with a diverse lineup of live music. – The Scene
While DJs and house are on the schedule, the music leans toward well-known bands playing world music, free jazz, trip-hop and funk. The sound is loud and clear, and the spacious stage can accommodate larger acts. In the warmer weather, the two huge garage doors roll up and the party (and the smokers) pour out into the front courtyard.
On Friday and Saturdays, the crowd of 20- and 30-somethings may come for the live music, but bands are often simply background sound for the see-and-be-seen set. A balcony offers a pool table and quieter seating for those who want to take a break and eat. The simple bar menu features some real winners, including the oven-roasted sandwiches and the thin-crust pizzas with toppings like Gorgonzola, pine nuts and rosemary.
A lot of potential and some disappointment – As with all Fremont music venues, you are running the risk of surrounding yourselves with two specific kinds of pretension: 1) pseudo-hipster types and, 2) frat kids. Nectar has room for both types and also brings in a more Well-Groomed "We're from Queen Anne but came down to catch Reggae band" crowd. All in all, the space is good for small gatherings and has great artwork on display from local artists. The drinks are slow to come when the band is good. The drinks are easy to obtain when the band is no good but, then you're stuck listening to bad music and watching the friends of the band ham it up - much better odds of enjoyment in the summer when the outside can be utilized.
fav spot but what just happened – This is my favorite bar and I go here aprox once a week for happy hour and/or a show.
What just happened though with the plastic glasses? Come on!! Drinking Mac & Jacks in plastic isnt the same.
I might have to move my business elsewhere.
What happened last Sunday night! – There was a great hip hop group playing. Must have been hundreds of people there. You couldn't get to the bar for a drink! What's the deal?
