Set in the heart of Seattle’s Pike Place Market, Can Can is a nightclub that offers both food and entertainment, with a design that’s meant to mimic the aura of turn-of-the-20th-century Paris. A series of entertainers, from guest headliners to the club’s own regular dance troupe, rotate through the club’s busy schedule, which appeals heavily to the tourist crowd but can also draw in nearby locals. Each evening brings a fresh, market-driven dinner menu comprised of ingredients found at the surrounding market, while drinks feature a diverse selection of craft cocktails, including absinthe-based concoctions available during “Green Hour,” which runs weekends between 4:30 and 6 p.m., and again from 11 p.m. to closing. For popular live events, its best to grab a ticket in advance.
