Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn would like to see some bars in the city open all night. The mayor and police officials say extending the nightlife hours would actually ease problems of noise and drunken behavior. McGinn shares the next step of his "nightlife initiative" with KING 5's Mark Wright.
Highlights from a press release issued by the mayor's office:
Five new taxi stands are being established in several neighborhoods popular for their nightlife offerings.The stands are intended to "provide a safe and visible sidewalk location for people to grab taxis in the city’s entertainment hubs and operate nightly from 10PM to 6AM."
The locations are:
Fremont—north side of 36th Avenue between Francis and Dayton
Belltown—east side of First Avenue between Blanchard and Bell
Downtown—east side of First Avenue between Pike and Pine
Pioneer Square—west side of Occidental between Washington and Yesler
Capitol Hill—south side of E Pike Street between 10th and Broadway
