Iconic Queen Anne Bars Say Goodbye At Year’s End

The building housing Tini Bigs and Hula Hula is slated for redevelopment

Cocktail lounge Tini Bigs is ending a 20-year run on Lower Queen Anne, as the 1929 building that houses it and sibling Tiki bar Hula Hula is slated for redevelopment. Owner Keith Robbins will shutter both businesses after New Year's Eve. Tini Bigs will have operated at First and Denny for more than 7,300 consecutive days by the time it shutters; Hula Hula opened next door in December 2006.

Robbins says he hopes to go out with a bang and is throwing a 20th anniversary party on December 7 with half-off food, wine, and spirits starting at 4 p.m. You can also celebrate Thanksgiving in style at Hula Hula on November 24, as Eater advises in a guide to Seattle Thanksgiving dinners, "with a Northwest-inspired Thanksgiving prix fixe menu followed by karaoke all night long."

Robbins' tenancy for both businesses expires after New Year's Eve, after which the building that houses them will be razed for construction of a six-story mixed-use building. Robbins has said he wants to reopen the bars elsewhere, but so far his searches have produced only "soul-less" locations.
