New Seattle listing hits the market for ... Beth's Cafe?

The parcel of property that Beth's Cafe sits on has been listed.

The 24-hour diner, along with Duck Island Ale House and Aurora Lawnmower, are part of a three-parcel listing for $6,000,000.

Beth's, which was first established in 1954 as a nickels slots gambling parlor, is known for its 24-hour service and 12-egg omelette (which has had it featured on shows like "Man vs. Food," "World's Best Places to Pig Out," and the Food Network's "Top 5 Big Breakfasts."

And their Aurora location -- right next to transit and Green Lake -- is prime for development according to the listing materials, which note that "early massing studies have indicated the potential for a mixed-use development with 68 units and reduced parking requirements.

"Income from the current tenants, a diner, ale house and small motor repair shop, allows a developer to carry the property while undergoing the permitting processes or land bank for future redevelopment," the listing continues.

But Beth's general manager Janelle Norviel says that Beth's isn't going away, and certainly not overnight.

"If somebody were to buy it right now we wouldn't go anywhere for almost two years anyway," Norviel said to the SeattlePI. "The absolute worst case scenario is Beth's would move; (but) Beth's is not going to close."

It's been over thirty years since I was last at Beth's. It used to be the last stop after a long night of bar hopping.

1. Oh NO!

The Lawnmower place - many times have I gone there. That little sliver of land has been there forever and now gone to a bunch of square box condos.

5. OMG No. Beths has been the go to of bar hopper for decades.

Seattle nightlife just wouldn't be the the same without them. I haven't bar hopped in 20 years but it would feel like a loss. LOL.
