A Seattle bar is reopening with live music and karaoke next month

Mar 23 2021, 6:42 pm

We’re a little over two weeks to having live music make a return to Seattle restaurants.

Kate’s Pub in the Wallingford neighborhood has announced the return of its dining room on April 16, as well as live music the following week on April 21.

Jim Park and the Unoriginals will be performing at 8 pm, with karaoke making its return the next week.

Kate’s Pub told Daily Hive that until a larger percentage of the population is vaccinated, guests will have to sing through a mask. “Having a mask on your face while you sing isn’t ideal, but if guests want to participate that’s just the way it’s going to be for a while.”

In addition, the pub is also putting up two plexiglass “sneeze shields” that the singers will stand behind, creating one more barrier between them and other guests. The karaoke host has multiple microphones and will be sanitizing them between each use as well.

On March 22, all counties in Washington moved to Phase 3 of Governor Jay Inslee’s Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery plan.

Phase 3 allows for in-person spectators at sports events for the first time in a year. It also allows restaurants to fill up to 50% occupancy or 400 people maximum, whichever is lower.

Physical distancing and facial coverings are still required.
