Where to go Dancing in Seattle

Nightlife — By Michelle Schusterman on December 5, 2010 at 8:10 pm

As far as nightlife goes, Seattle is considered a quiet city. But it’s still a city, and whether you’re looking for an elegant evening out or a thrashing good time, there’s quite a few places to go dancing in Seattle.

Century Ballroom

So elegant it’s like a step back in time. This 2,000 sq ft dance floor is one of the largest in the city, and sees dozens of lessons a month covering everything from salsa and swing to the lindy hop. Events aren’t rare either, and are held around the year. You must be 21 or older to enjoy a night of dancing at the Century Ballroom.

Trinity Night Club

A three-in-one deal – the main room offers cathedral decor and an enormous dance floor, the blue room is sparkle-infused retro mania, and the card room is an exotic, Asian-themed lounge. The incredible lighting system and internationally recognized DJs make this a top choice for many social Seattleites ready to bust a move.

Heaven Nightclub

Is it a bachelorette party you’re planning? Heaven is the place. This club offers a personal party booking option for all kinds of groups ready to get rowdy. Although you don’t need a reason to enjoy a night of dancing surrounded by blinding neon lights and futuristic decor, do you?


Divas, drag queens and DJs – this place is a party no matter what your sexual orientation. The music is a fun mix of Top 40, techno, disco, and pop tunes that make you groan but shake your ass anyway.

Baltic Room

Not so much into the “clubbing” scene? With a starry ceiling, dim lights and soulful music, the Baltic Room is a bit more chic than your average nightclub. The stage might feature live music or DJs, but either way the dance floor will be packed.
