Changes celebrates 21st anniversary all year long

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

Since 1989, going to Changes (2103 N. 45th St.) has been like walking into a Gay episode of Cheers. Not a whole lot has changed for the friendly neighborhood former beer bar in 21 years. They added liquor to the bar in '01, but otherwise the regulars are getting older, the Gay UW students come and go, and time just keeps rolling on by.

Nestled in the heart of Wallingford, the bar that used to be called the Bus Stop recently celebrated its 21-year anniversary under the name Changes. To celebrate, they're offering special prices to anyone else who's turning 21 this year - very, very special prices - on your birthday (we're talking nearly free.)

According to the owner, Floyd, the Bus Stop "was supposed to be a Gay bar - it kind of was, kind of wasn't." It was owned by two women that he was friends with. One night, in casual conversation with the two while he was sitting at the bar, he offered to buy the place. "Are you serious?" they replied. The next day, the three met for lunch, and Changes was born.

"There's nothing on the Hill that compares with this friendly, charming place," said one patron in a message on the bar's website.

"When we first opened, anyone Gay in North Seattle would come here. We were just a dark black tunnel, but we'd pack 'em in here every night," Floyd told SGN. "For a lot of customers, this is the only bar they come to."

Changes is one of the longest-running Gay bars in Seattle. The bar sponsors and has sponsored local Gay softball, soccer, and basketball teams. Happy hour runs all day and night Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, with $2.75 wells and $3 microbrews. Changes offers karaoke on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
