13 Coins, Seattle’s late-night landmark, has renegotiated the lease at its original building (125 Boren Ave. N) and will remain open there through January 1; its new Pioneer Square home (255 South King Street) is now set to open January 13, a slight delay from the original timeline.
As a bonus for stalwart customers (or anyone with lucky timing), on the original location’s last day, January 1, menu prices on several items will revert to 1967 prices, and diners will be allowed to take their plates home with them, until supplies run out.
Owner Al Moscatel announced in June that 13 Coins’ South Lake Union home, which it has occupied since 1967, was slated for redevelopment. As he and his partners shift operations from that spot to Pioneer Square, they plan to maintain much of the same vintage charm: high-backed booths, the engaging open kitchen, live music, captain’s chairs, and, of course, 24/7 operation.
The new location will spread over two levels, with the ground floor consisting of a large private dining area that can accommodate up to 175 people in various configurations. The restaurant also has locations in Sea-Tac and Bellevue for anyone who needs a fix at 3 a.m. on, say, January 2.
