I don't know why everyone is so harsh... I prefer going out in Bellevue and not circle the block for 30 minutes just to find parking for at least $10 in Seattle. At Lincoln square and Bellevue mall parking is free, and you just take the elevator upstairs. There you have your choice of a few places to go to including restaurants and bars. The two better ones are Lucky Strike and The Parlor. I wanted to go to Lucky strike (just because it was the closest) so we got in line and after waiting for 20 minutes without moving we went upstairs. The Parlor had a line too, but the bouncers were just checking ID's not keeping people at the door for no reason. Once inside we circled the place, which is pretty big, and saw that there were two bars. We sat down at a table in the bar and the waitress took our order. You could see it was busy but she still had a smile on her face and was very friendly. We had a couple of drinks then we went to the back and danced for the rest of the night. The dance floor was pretty full, but not any different than clubs in Seattle. At least you could sit in a booth without buying it. The DJ was great and we stayed until close. Did i mention there was no cover??? So all in all with the money i saved on cover and parking I could spend some extra on drinks, which are priced the same all over Bellevue and Seattle clubs. If you don't have money then don't go out, that's what i have to say to all the complainers.
