King Cobra exits, the Lobby Bar to take its place

When CHS last visited the King Cobra space in July 2009, brown butcher paper was spotted – evincing new ownership.  After noting a report that King Cobra had applied earlier this month to assume Kinkora Pike St LLC’s liquor license, we contacted King Cobra’s new owners Bigelow Villa LLC to uncover their plans for the space.  Paul Villa, one of the co-owners gave us the scoop on what he and his business partner Curtis Bigelow envision:

  • We are only leasing half the space and leaving the dance floor behind. By only taking the 916 E. Pike space we hope to avoid the curse that seems to be on the 918 E. Pike space
  • The concept/design is a boutique hotel lobby bar (contemporary, polished, fun) while maintaining a Seattle vibe (friendly, welcoming, down-to-earth). It’ll be a nice environment to chill and hang out, and hopefully meet new people/friends
  • We’re going to call it The Lobby Bar.  But after hearing you call it The Villa we’re seriously reconsidering
  • We’ll be a bar catering to the LGBT community but inclusive to everyone
  • Our goal is to be open early to mid-November
