Vito's–Sat, October 29

It’s time to start working on your costume for Vito’s Halloween Party with Lushy!
Sat, October 29, 9pm – Sun, October 30, 2am
The Hideout, The Sorrento and Vito’s Proudly Present the Second Annual ER COSTUME CRAWL
Join us for the second annual ER Costume Crawl with a $500.00 grand prize for best costume! First Hill rounds up a great turnout for this artist fueled costume party, and all three destinations have great music and festivities planned – DJ Stack spinning records at the Hideout, Lushy performing at Vito’s and a haunted suite at the Sorrento to boot! It is a great party, with no cover charge, but you must be 21+ with proper id and you must be in costume – it’s just too crowded otherwise! Grab a room at the Sorrento and settle in for a wild and crazy time!

Happy Halloween!

Vito’s is an iconic restaurant and lounge located on First Hill. Opened in 1953, it has a history rich in cocktail culture, organized crime and east coast, family style Italian food.

In April of 2010, Jeff Scott and Greg Lundgren purchased this Seattle institution and began a major restoration of the space. Their goal is to return Vito’s to the glamor and style of the 1950s, respect its colorful past and set the course for a 21st-century resurrection. Over the years the club has fallen into disrepair and poor alterations. They have replaced the dance floor with a performance space centered around a grand piano, with lounge singers, jazz trios and Lynchian curiosities that will dazzle and entertain into the early morning.

XMas Show at Andy's Diner (Orient Express) now rescheduled for Saturday January 17th 9pm FREE !!!

That was fun!  I want to do it again.  What do you


Continuing it’s four year tradition, Lushy will be performing a Christmas show at the Seattle landmark, Andy’s Diner, on the evening of Saturday, January 17th in the SODO district, intoxicating the walls of the historic rail-car diner with its unique blend of bossa-beats, tiki-tones, and alterna-pop. However this year, though the location is the same, the business name, some exterior and interior physical aesthetics, and the cuisine have changed: Andy’s Diner is now The Orient Express.

Lushy will be performing in an unearthed upstairs section called the BOOM BOOMROOM, which will be equipped with a mini-bar and bartender.  A DJ will be keeping the action going in the main bar.

The Orient Express has agreed to keep the kitchen open ’til midnight, serving Chinese and Thai dishes.

And also keeping with tradition, this show is FREE! Lushy’s Christmas gift to you! Two sets are guaranteed, but there’s chat about possibly three. And yes, some Christmas songs will be performed — , ‘Snowflake Surprise’, ‘Heat Miser’, etc.

Lushy. Cocktails. Rail-Cars. Chinese and Thai food. What’s not to love?

It’s been an exciting year… Bumbershoot, Berlin, Barack Obama and all the places, shows and parties in between.

Thanks for listening. We mean it!
