Live Music Saturday Nights at Grinders
We are happy to support live music in the Northwest by having some of the best professional groups come to play for you at Grinders on Saturday nights. We strongly recommend making reservations, as we are an intimate venue. Your table will be available for you after 6:30pm. Music starts at 8pm and usually runs until 10-10:30pm. We add a modest $10 cover per person to the final bill at the end of the night to offset the cost of paying these amazing musicians. Any questions, or to make a reservation, please call the restaurant during business hours.
For Reservations Call : 206-542-0627
If you make a reservation, please attend the performance or let us know in a timely manner you will not be able to attend. Having a full house is integral to making live music profitable for the venue and the performers. It is disheartening to have a full reservation night on the books, with a waitlist of music lovers wanting to attend, and only 3/4 of the patrons arrive.
We want to continue to host live music events. Please honor your reservation or contact us the day before and we can release the seats to other customers. Thank you.

August 3rd - The Daily Flash
In the mid '60s, The Daily Flash found a way to fuse folk, rock, blues, bluegrass and jazz. That process lives on in this stunning line up. The new edition of The Daily Flash has earned a reputation as a dynamic vocal band of consummate instrumentalists. The band features ASCAP composers and does original tunes, but their favorite trick is interpretation. They breathe life into an eclectic repertoire of folk, rock, Celtic and Delta swamp fusion. The Daily Flash brings the spirit of the sixties into the 21st century and delivers to stages all around the Northwest.
