Well, folks, we’re sure you’re used to cancellations and closures at this point. But sadly Seattle is losing a piece of history as the Jules Maes Saloon is closing permanently. And after 132 years it’s safe to say that they had a good run.

And its closure is due to an all too common Seattle problem- rising rent. That’s right, the landlord of this classic building is jacking up rent by a cool 27%. Very reasonable, especially in the middle of a pandemic. Good luck renting out that space in this economy.
