Are you a morning person or a night owl? Either way, we have your new favorite spot in Seattle. The newly-opened Gemini Room in Capitol Hill is an all-day cafe and late-night bar with a groovy ’70s aesthetic. They just celebrated their opening with an epic New Year’s Eve party and we can’t wait for their next event (but will be stopping by every week just for the vibes and cool drinks).
Read on for all the details about Seattle’s Gemini Room!
Gemini Room opened in mid-December 2022. It is women- and LGBTQIA+-owned. You’ll find it in Seattle’s hip Capitol Hill neighborhood, right in Chophouse Row (the entrance is on 11th Ave).
The interior and overall design evokes the year 1973. Everything from the furniture and lighting to the glassware contributes to the perfectly-curated vintage style of Gemini Room. You may be inspired to wear your best ’70s-inspired fit when you visit. Follow that urge.
Gemini Room serves two distinct purposes. Starting at 9:00 a.m., it’s there during the day to be your favorite neighborhood coffee shop with a glamorous, mood-boosting vibe. You can enjoy espresso drinks, tea, and creative seasonal lattes such as the Cardamom Orange Latte. Their “Day Eats” section of the menu (served from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) features hearty items such as breakfast sandwiches and grain bowls.
Starting at 4:00 p.m., Gemini Room switches over to one of Seattle’s most stylish bars. The “Night Eats” section of their menu (served from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m.) is full of shareable small plates like steak sliders and pickled deviled eggs. You’ll also be able to imbibe on beer, wine, and retro craft cocktails such as the gin-based Rosemary Fizz.
Not a big drinker (or perhaps doing Dry January)? Gemini Room also offers a solid lineup of non-alcoholic beverages such as a sparkling green tea tonic and Rachel’s Ginger Beer. Best of all, if you’ve been decrying Seattle’s lack of late-night coffee spots, you’ll be happy to know that Gemini Room also serves their coffee drinks in the evening.
