Can Can Kitchen & Cabaret
Overpowering the din of farmers and fisherman slinging their fresh wares at the centenarian Pike Place Market above, performers put on a vibrant and colorful show for those lucky enough to stumble across Can Can Kitchen & Cabaret, located just below the market’s floor. Within the hidden hot spot, sultry red bulbs glow over velvet draperies, creating an old-timey look reminiscent of turn-of-the-20th-century Parisian clubs. The stage features an endless rotation of talent, including national and local dancers, comedians, and singers, as well as Can Can Kitchen & Cabaret’s own dance troupe, The Castaways. Though shows may flirt with the risqué, Tom Scanlon of the Seattle Times noted that routines, like games of strip poker in which everyone wears their entire wardrobe, are only “slightly naughty.” Scanlon explains, “The house can-can dancers often [lifted] their skirts to reveal…fishnets and frilly petticoats.” As they put on Moulin Rouge–inspired entertainment, bartenders forge handmade cocktails that feature freshly squeezed fruits and, more times than not, the house liquor of choice, absinthe. Cooks, meanwhile, craft small plates, such as crab cakes and garlic fries, or prepare a prix fixe three-course menu.
