Description: Located in the heart of the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle, Can Can's underground setting is evocative of Paris at the turn of the 20th century. Once immersed in this Vaudevillian Chapel, you will see why the Can Can is one of Seattle's most celebrated, award winning nightspots. Twice a year the amazingly talented Can Can Dance Troupe, launches a new show, that will wow, delight, tease and titillate any audience. We serve a delectable "Pike-Place-Market-Fresh" dinner menu prepared by Chef Kelly Connor, from 6:00PM-Close. There's never a cover in the Absinthe & Craft Cocktail Bar, where you can enjoy one of our many famous house-crafted cocktails! Please visit us online for more information.

We did not eat here since I don't think the focus is a restaurant. We went to the early show and it was just tacky. The stage is very small and I would say that the room was just under half full. It seems like there are quite a few bachelorette parties who come here and that should tell you... More

We enjoyed our bacon-wrapped prawn and arugula salad so much that we came back for dinner following the Savor Seattle tour. The green fairy was also a highlight! We would have seen a show too - but all tickets were sold out. Next time!

We attended a show saturday night which was very entertaining. The performers were a lot of fun to watch. We were there for the 930 show but they were out of two of the wine labels offered on the menu. Other than that was a great show.

We did not have any food, just had beverages and took in the show, but had a really fun time! It was definitely better than I expected. Arrive early to enjoy an Absinthe (or other) cocktail, as the bar waiting area does get jam packed.

After being introduced to The Can Can on a foodie tour, we really wanted to return for a show. We booked tickets for the 9:30 Saturday night offering called "Chi Chi." As promised, it was old-school burlesque with a lot of innuendo and humor. The dancers are fabulously talented and the choreography is amazing! The theatre is a tight little... More

We had bought tickets (sight unseen) to a comedy club for our Seattle visit. The venue isn't much to look at, and should have known by the absolute lack of any crowd, that it wasn't going to be a great evening. The drinks were fine, the comics were just ok. It's not a great endorsement of a venue when the... More

We went to a Sunday night show they are featuring with women and a pole. The show was so sentual and not overly sexual at all! So classy! The women are lovely, the costumes amazing! The food is great too! We had salad and goat cheese balls that were delicious. Try a "Green Fairy" drink when there.

Made a reservation here on a whim with my wife. It was really fun. We went the whole nine yards on the VIP seats and dinner. Next time I might just stick with the regular menu rather than the set menu with the reservation or even just go for the show and drinks. So, we probably paid too much. But,... More

We went here for drinks and it was a really cool bar. I liked the underground feel and the guy at the door was friendly, eccentric and funny. The bartender was less friendly, but he poured a decent cocktail. Good atmosphere and great place to catch a buzz. Their absinthe fountain is cool. I will go back for a show... More

We didn't have dinner here just watched the show and had some cocktails. This is a place that is not serious and formal, just fun! The absinthe cocktails were delicious. when we ordered during the show the waitress did take a while. The show itself was hilarious and entertaining. I had a great time.
