The Nitelite

2230 7th Avenue
Seattle, WA

all damned night!

The Nitelite is a tiny dive nestled in the Moore Hotel on 2nd avenue in Downtown Seattle. It's a grand place to go and get fried eggs and ham at 3:00 AM, not to mention a nice stiff drink. And the local color can't be beat — all varieties of folk are there, with many "regulars." It's not uncommon to witness a fight, or at least a scuffle, on the premesis in the evening hours. The waitresses are nice to you if you're nice to them, but don't get on their bad side!
