A fun artifact from Seattle's culinary history. The Bagdad Cafe was located on Broadway across from Perkins Glass, present site of the QFC grocery store. According to a local authority on Seattle's restaurant history, prior to the restaurant's 1977 closure the Bagdad was the first to introduce a happy hour from six-to-nine ... AM.

Sign was bought from a Seattle restaurateur, who himself bought it at the restaurant's liquidation auction.
The Bagdad Cafe had no connection to the 1987 indie flick ... that we know of.
