Great Location - Horrible Waitress – Went here for my boyfriends birthday party this weekend and the atmosphere is super cool. Our waitress was incredibly rude from the begining though. I don't know if that's there thing like that sandwich shop where they curse at you or what but I was completely shocked by how unprofessional she was.
About ten minutes after we arrived she asked us if we were sure there were really gonna be 15 people in our party as not everyone had found the secret location of the place (I'm sure this is a common problem). Then once everyone arrived she threatened us (seriously threatened us) with ruining our good time if we were to venture downstairs without paying her first. Throughout the night she continually accused members of our table of skipping out on the check when they went out for cigs....does no one ever smoke anymore?! This kept happening even though most of our table remained seated. To be fair maybe she just doesn't trust minorities as our table was very diverse - although I don't really expect that from people in Seattle. Finally, when her shift ended she demanded (didn't politely ask but DEMANDED) that we pay our tabs as she was off. It was all very strange.
However, once we were free from the repression of our horrible waitress we went downstairs to the dance floor area and had a wonderful time!! The bartender was awesome as was the DJ and we ended our night on a great note. My suggestion is if you go to the Alibi Room head straight downstairs unless you want to get your feelings hurt.
