Opened in 2010, the Unicorn has become a staple of the spirited nightlife scene of Seattle's Pike/Pine Corridor.
And as it turns out, almost all the tales of the Unicorn are true. Once housing The Oakland Car Company, the space has been completely transformed. Unicorn is adorned with salvaged architectural pieces, Victorian church parts, vintage lighting and hand painted motifs. The owner's long-term passion for rescuing and repurposing forgotten items is obvious as soon as you walk through the door.
For months before the Unicorn opened, locals watched as the ornate back bar and antique taxidermy took place, turning the new business into one of Seattle's most uniquely loved drinkeries.
