You can say your final good bye to the Funhouse Seattle bar tonight (Nov 1st 2012). Their final live show is tonight only and that will be it for them. The location will most likely be torn down to build a seven story building. The Funhouse bar is one of Seattle most iconic punk bars. Opened in 2003 and recognized by it’s angry clown face that gives you the creeps with each visit. They featured some great shows from both wannabes to the well known. The regulars would describe it was a pinball and punk lover’s dream location. Before the Funhouse bar it was Zak’s. Then before that it was Tex’s Tavern.
The bar may find a new home in the future but right now that is undecided. Their music equipment and a lot of the food equipment is being sold on the Seattle Craigslist site right now. They are selling a little bit of everything and most of it is only a few years old. “Bring Cash please” the ad mentions.
The bar did feature another clown head at one time, however, thieves took it off the roof and ended up ruining it by dragging it down the street only to give up later.
