If you’re looking for a romantic, entertaining, and unforgettable night out in Seattle, any of these three dinner theaters will satisfy your need. The prices range from $10 to over $200 to fit all budgets and desires. Dinner theaters have become increasingly popular because they not only serve great food, but also offer an amazing performance to go along with your meal. The combination ensures that you leave full, happy, and satisfied.
1. Can Can Kitchen and Cabaret
94 Pike Street; Seattle, Washington 98101
Price: Ticket prices vary depending on seat location and show selection, but they generally range from $10 to $35.
Food: Food is not included in the ticket price, but get there early and you may be able to take advantage of their happy hour menu, available from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and 11:00pm to close Sundays through Thursdays in the restaurant. The happy hour menu consists of selections ranging from $3 for small plates to $6 for a small pizza. The normal menu features appetizers and a variety of mac and cheese choices, which I would highly recommend for any mac and cheese fan.
Review: Can Can Kitchen and Cabaret, located outside Pike Place Market, is one of the most affordable dinner theaters in the Seattle area. The show is very entertaining and will have you laughing the entire night as numerous skits are performed by the talented cast members. Can Can Kitchen and Cabaret may not look like much from the outside, but it will provide a fun night for much less than other dinner theater options in the area. With its laid-back environment, this venue would be great for either a girl’s night out or a casual date.
2. Teatro ZinZanni
222 Mercer Street; Seattle, WA 98109
Price: Ticket prices vary depending on your seat location and the show selected, but it generally ranges from $107 to $141 a person.
Food: The ticket price may seem high, but it includes a five-course dinner prepared by renowned Seattle chef Tom Douglas, owner of several other prestigious restaurants in the area. As with all of the other highly rated Tom Douglas restaurants, the food here will leave your taste buds very happy.
Review: For a true celebration, visit Teatro ZinZanni in downtown Seattle, located next to Seattle Center. The three-hour long show features comedy skits, circus feats, and cabaret, all in a circus tent-like setting. Unlike many other dinner theaters in the Seattle area, there is no age limit to attend the dinner theater at Teatro ZinZanni, so children are welcome. If you are planning a special night out, Teatro ZinZanni will not disappoint.
3. El Gaucho Blue Moon Cabaret
2505 First Avenue; Seattle, WA 98121
Price: Prices range from $40 to $225 a person depending on your seat and food selection. If you choose not to partake in dinner and opt to just watch the show, you can get a bar seat for $40.
Food: If you want to splurge for an unforgettable night out, $225 a person will get you premier seating, a bottle of Veuve Cliquot to share with your date, and a four course dinner made with only the highest quality ingredients. Since El Gaucho is famous for its steaks, the filet mignon is highly recommended as a main course.
Review: El Gaucho is known for fine dining and high-quality steaks, but it is also home to a tantalizing adults-only burlesque dinner theater. Although the price is steep, it is in line with the atmosphere of the restaurant and dinner theater. Once you step inside, you feel as if you’ve been whisked back into a 1950’s Hollywood movie. From the moment you step foot in the door, you’re given VIP treatment. A night at the El Gaucho dinner theater is sure to be a night to remember, and is one unlike any other in Seattle.
