West Seattle's premier music venue.

We book a variety of indie rock, pop, electronica, americana, folk, punk, hard rock, metal, experimental, jazz, triphop and more – usually three acts per show Thursday through Sunday. We also feature weekly karaoke, monthly bellydance, and occasional burlesque and drag events. You can rent our space for music video shoots, film shoots, or private events. 



Come out and sing with librarians, with no shushing allowed unless it’s in the lyrics. Join us at the Skylark Café in Delridge for a fun night of music and merriment. Admission Free: Drinks on you.
 This Booktoberfest, join librarians for some karaoke! Yes, you read that right: librarians like to read AND sing! Join us for a night of bookish karaoke at the Skylark Café in Delridge, with our deejay Baby Ketten. Feel free to bring along your favorite book, dedicate your song selections to favorite books or authors, or come dressed as your favorite literary character or figure. Special prizes will be awarded while supplies last, so bring your bookish A-game! Celebrate books and music and raise a glass with us! There’ll be no shushing us tonight!

Song selection is available here. Yes: they have the Reading Rainbow theme! How many songs about books do you know? 

This program is a part of Booktoberfest. Join all October long as we mix it up in bars and pubs across Seattle in this annual celebration of books, beer and good times. Join us for bookish happy hours, librarian-hosted trivia nights, spooky story nights in area bars and libraries, a literary mixology event where we pair books and drinks, free film screenings and more! Look for Booktoberfest Beer Coasters (funded by the Friends of The Seattle Public Library) at all events, and at various venues all across the City. See the full roster of events.
