Pretty fun – If you?re straight and like the thump thump music this is probably the place for you. A few of the bar tenders are really awesome. The djs are usually pretty good. The rooftop deck is just the best on a sunny afternoon ? especially when it isn?t crowded. If a dj is up there you?ll probably be treated to tragic straight-boy dancing.  It can be a little yuppie, so if that?s a turn off bring your own friends and just enjoy the deck. I haven?t been there on a busy Friday or Saturday night ? but during the day/evenings it?s very gay friendly.

A Multicultural, Multigenerational, Multigender, multi-anything you want it to be circus party! – I title it, A Multicultural Circus beause everytime I have gone there I have had a different experience. The first time, there were "pretentious seatttlelites" partaking in happy hour on the roof top deck. That same night they were setting up for a lesbian dance. The next time I drove by their were a bunch of seattle's upcoming urban youth waiting in a long line outside. Then I went back again and I saw your typical teva wearing pasty seattle folk. Then I went back again and it was mostly asian crowd boppin to 80's beats. Ive seen every race at the War Room,maybe that why they named in the War Room. Those of you who thought Seattle lacked diversity, well your wrong. Go to the War Room and find out for yourself. But don't forget to check out what is going on during the different nights of the week or you may end up lost in the Circus. I support this place and and you should too so if you would like to help in the struggle to put Seattle on the map put your fist up and head to the War Room.

Great Wednesday and Monday Night – The War Room always seems to have great nights during the week. The breakdancing night on Monday has awesome music and you can catch the World Champion Massive Monkees from time to time. The Wednesday is a fantastic 80's night where people just let lose, no posing at all. I will say that on busy nights the bathroom is not the place you want to go if you are a woman. Also the secruity doesn't mess around so if you get out of hand stand on the stairs and stop the flow be prepared to hear about. All in all a great club with a roof to take a smoke break on with drinks that are poured correctly and stiff for a totally reasonable price.

Great outdoor deck – I have to admire any bar that has mint onhand to make my mojitos. Went on a wednesday night and the band playing downstairs was REALLY loud death metal type. The roof deck was relaxing and fun- plenty of tables and the line at the bar was short.

Capitol Hill's hot venue has plenty of potential, thanks to diverse booking, a fabulous deck and clubby, cozy ambience. – The Scene
Previously a nondescript dance club, this ideal Pike Street location has been warmed up with rich pine siding and became a major draw on the Capitol Hill scene in 2005. Mixing elements of class and comfort, the space has much to offer, from low-slung communal couches in the lounge to the perfectly situated dance floor in the main room, a generously sized space with strategically placed booths for views of the action. The cordial staff lives up to their motto that "peace is our profession."

The Draw
Saturday's Yo Son! and Soul City Mondays with Circle of Fire regularly attract crowds. Summer happy hours are also a big attraction, thanks to a large rooftop deck that provides an unexpected oasis in a neighborhood known for higher noise levels. Even on breezy days, shielding bamboo screens make this an idyllic spot for an afternoon margarita or a weekend bloody mary.

Can we get another bathroom please? – I loved the sophisticated look of this place with all of the wood, low lighting, artwork, and even the fresh flowers in the seating areas. The atmosphere and size of the place is great. I went on a Saturday and the music was awesome, some standard favorites - but also a few eclectic pieces thrown in here and there.

My only complaint, and it's a big one to me, is the fact there is only TWO stalls in the womens bathroom. Pretty early in the evening, there was a line of about 20 or so ladies long - which I didn't want to wait in - so we left.

Why do clubs never have enough bathrooms? People are drinking, they will have to use them.

Worst Security Ever! – I have worked in the service industry in Seattle for quite awhile now, and the security at The War Room are the worst. Especially the door guys. They are rude and think way too highly of themselves and their terribly cheesy establishment. I will never go back there unless it's on a Weekday. Thumbs way down for that place. Too bad too, because it could be really cool. One guy came up to me and asked me how many hearts I had broken that night. That place is lame on the weekends - another one bites the dust.

What a concept! A dance club that's not cheesy! – I went Friday and had a great time!

The War Room has a big city vibe with rich lighting, funky artwork & house music that's actually fun to dance to.

Great mix of people -- I met a number of foreigners (Italian, Australian, etc,.) and over half the crowd was 25+, which is such a bonus in this town.

The only "con" is the SUPER LONG bathroom line. Two girlfriends were gone for 20+ minutes b/c the line was so long, which can be such a buzz kill!

I got a sneak-peak at the gigantic, standing-room only, outside deck. It looks like a fun place to be, especially for hot summer nights. Also, it gives the smokers somewhere to go, therefore making it more comfortable for non-smokers inside.

It is so nice to FINALLY have a fantastic, sophisticated club like this in Seattle.

Finally there is a place to go in Seattle that is reminiscent of the bars/lounges of Los Angeles, New York and Florida. Love the roof top deck!!!
