We have it pretty good in the Pacific Northwest, especially if you're looking for a Seattle hookup. The mix of mountains, forests, lakes and, of course, Puget Sound make this the most beautiful region in the country, hands down. No matter how picturesque it is, though, if you’re alone it can be miserable, especially in the winter. If you’re like us, you turn to popular bars when the lonely blues kick in.
The great thing about our city is that eligible singles are plentiful (imagine how tough it is for people out in Burlington). Just because there are 750,000 people here, though, doesn’t mean it’s always easy to get laid. You can spend an entire weekend bar hopping from Ballard to Georgetown and come up dry. Likewise, the number of online hookup options just complicates matters. Where does one even start?
Right here. We’ve crossed the Emerald City both digitally and literally to find the best places to get laid. These are the options that will help you stay warm in those gray winter months. Local hookup experts love them, and you will too.

Our favorite spots to find a Seattle hookup
We hate going out in the winter. Those gray days just make you want to stay on your couch for hours and binge TV. Luckily, the best Seattle hookup options make it easy to turn your Friends marathon into a marathon Netflix and Chill session. Read on.
Rabbit Hole is low-key one of the coolest bars in the city
Some old-timers will still swear that Belltown is to be avoided, but don’t listen to them. If you do, you’ll miss out on Rabbit Hole. This sexy bar isn’t terribly fancy, nor is it a dive. It walks the line between the two perfectly, with a full bar, tasty food, skeeball and various events throughout the month.
They have a 3-hour happy hour every single night, so show up before 7 and you can get your evening started early. The crowd is a nice mix of people, mostly in their late 20s and early-to-mid 30s. It’s a great place to sit at the bar, start a conversation with a stranger and see where the night leads you.
AFF makes it easy to get laid in Seattle in our experience (try it free)
When you're tired of the bar and club scene but still want to have some fun in the bedroom the best option in Seattle that we've found has been AFF (which you can try for free at the link above). No other option has consistently worked for single guys that aren't super good looking.
It's extremely popular in town for singles who just want to hook up and aren't looking for any strings attached. Unlike Tinder, which is pretty much about dating now, everyone using it wants to head to bed ASAP. It really is different.
When you're tired of wasting your time and actually want results AFF is the best option for getting laid in Seattle that we've tried
If Tinder hasn't worked well for you (and it doesn't for most) AFF is where it's at. Check out their free trial and see for yourself. There are a lot of options out there you probably don't even know about!
The best Seattle pickup bars we've tried
In a city so committed to drinking culture, we have to start our list with the bars. Here are some of the most reliable hotspots for meeting single girls.
Canon has earned its reputations as one of the coolest, sexiest bars in the city
In a city that has a bar, pub or lounge for every taste, it takes a lot to stand out here. Locals tend to be pretty hard to impress when it comes to watering holes, with good reason. So, when compiling this list, we knew we had to start with somewhere truly special. Enter: Canon.
This cocktail lounge/gastropub just around the corner from Seattle University is why people love this city. Their mix of upscale pub grub and professionally crafted cocktails is just part of the appeal. It also has a list of alcohols that runs nearly 200 pages. If you can’t find your perfect drink here, you don’t deserve to call yourself a drinker.
Of course, all of that is just icing on the cake. The reason Canon is on our list is it’s essentially a spiderweb for beautiful girls. As a date spot, it’s the perfect blend of sophisticated and cool. If you’re flying solo, the city’s finest single gals are always out and about. For those who appreciate a meat market with style, Canon is the best place to get laid in Seattle.
Ounces Taproom is everything beautiful about our city in a beer garden
Anyone who has ever been in out city from July to October knows no city compares. Personally, rain or no rain, we’d pick this city over anywhere else to live, but summer here is special. Those few months of sunlight are to be cherished, and we do just that at Ounces Taproom and Beer Garden.
Beer gardens are particularly great for meeting girls because they’re so open and relaxed. It mixes the lowered inhibitions of a bar with the care-free vibe of a park. Picking up a pretty girl is just a matter of being friendly and open to starting up a conversation.
This masterpiece of a bar is a 3,000-square-foot paradise when the sun is out. With dozens of beers on tap and food trucks available for bites, it’s the perfect way to spend a day. Trust us, we’ve done it plenty. Lest you think Ounces Taproom is only worth a visit in the summer, don’t worry. They cover and heat the beer garden so you can still appreciate the outdoor experience year-round. Whether your first love is beer or hot girls, Ounces Taproom has plenty of both.
Re-bar is the best bar to find some quick Seattle hook ups
What exactly is Re-bar? That’s not easy to answer. You see, on one hand, it’s afriendly nightclub. On the other hand, it’s a theater. On the other other hand, it’s an art space/music venue. Like the city it calls home, Re-bar is pretty much impossible to define, and that’s why we love it. It brings out the weirdest, wildest and coolest people in the city.
What makes Re-bar one of our favorite hookup spots is that it is so freewheeling. When going through all the hookup options around you it's good to have a place that so flexible. On any given night, you will find a completely different event and an eclectic crowd to match. Not far from Denny Park, the moment you walk into this place, you feel like the possibilities are endless. If you’re not having a good time here, you might not be alive.
Kells gets busy so you can too
If you’re from here, chances are you avoid Pike Place Market at all costs. We get it, the tourists can be annoying. Don’t sleep on Kells Irish Restaurant and Bar, though. Situated in Post Alley, this pub brings together excellent Irish food, live music and a fine selection of whiskeys. Those are fine ingredients for a hookup bar.
There’s just something about an Irish pub that makes people sociable. The crowds that arrive to Kells are often workers looking to unwind, neighborhood folk who appreciate good food, and, yes, tourists. The great thing about visitors to our city, though, is they’re often excited to meet a friendly local. Offer your guide services to a tourist and you’ll both have a good time.

A huge number of hookups start online now. You don't have spend all day on the apps but spending 10-20 minutes a week sending messages can really pay off. These are the best hookup apps in the city right now:

The best clubs for finding hookups in Seattle
Whether they’re hitting the dance floor or just looking for a cozy corner to drink in, girls love clubs. Here are some of our favorites.
Kremwerk is a dance club as wild and free as our city
There are plenty of dance clubs in the city. We’re a city of people who like to shake it on the dance floor on the regular. On any given night, there are probably 500 DJs throughout the city, spinning something by Avicii. Which is to say, there are a lot of options for dancing, but only a few that are actually unique. If you’re looking for a sexy dance club with personality, you want Kremwerk.
Located in Denny Hill, Kremwerk is your club if you need a break from Capitol Hill but not the crowds. Kremwerk is queer-friendly but also so much more than an LGBT bar. Everyone is welcome here, which makes it the perfect microcosm of Seattle. It’s impossible to have a bad time on their dance floor.
On the weekends, this place consistently gets busy with a bevy of hot girls and open-minded tourists. It’s the kind of place ladies go to lose themselves for a few hours and get close with a sexy stranger. Be that stranger. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more inclusive and more thrilling dance club in all of the city.
Cedar Room is sexy without even trying
You know that cliché movie character: the girl who's super sexy but doesn’t even know it. She’s just super chill and cool and doesn’t seem to recognize how hot she is? Well, the Cedar Room is basically that girl in nightclub form. This wood-paneled club and dance venue is one of the coolest nightspots in all of Seattle, minus the pretentious crowds.
Like some of you, we tend to be suspicious about any nightlife recommendations in Ballard. They are often expensive and hard to get to and from, especially after hours. So, it takes something special for us to make the trek. Cedar Room is that something special. Its mix of DJ-led dance parties, live music, and lounge-style chill make for one of our favorite outing experiences.
As a locale for picking up girls, it has easily earned its place as one of our top picks. The atmosphere is upscale without being stuffy; effortlessly cool but still plenty of fun. If you’ve written off Ballard or night clubs, we honestly believe Cedar Room will turn you around on both. It’s time you made your move on that sexy-but-doesn’t-know-it girl and have yourself a night to remember.
Trinity Nightclub puts the weekend in high gear
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our most exciting dance spot, Trinity Nightclub. In a city known for its music scene, a club has to be pretty special to stand out. Trinity pulls off that feat by having four separate rooms that create four very different atmospheres. If you’re in need of some human contact, this is where you can get some action!
We recommend hitting the Main Room’s dance floor to loosen up, before moving on to the sexier Blue Room. Once you’ve made eye contact with someone enticing, invite them to follow you to the Card Room’s quieter lounge for drinks and a little conversation. If you’ve got the cash for the VIP Room, you’ll impress, but even if not, you should still end your night in the bedroom.
Best places to meet sexy Seattle girls during the day
Feel like looking for some action in the daytime? Here are some spots you should try.
Cafe Solstice is a hotspot for UW hotties
Don’t you even think about going to Starbucks! Our city has too many great coffee houses for you to waste your time at one of those lifeless hubs. We’re not being coffee snubs: some of the best places to find Seattle hook ups are trendy coffee houses. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to meet sexy girls.
Near the University of Washington campus, hot girl central is definitely Cafe Solstice. Its charming mix of coffee-obsessive baristas and quirky artwork draws in the college gals. But it’s also spacious and relaxed, perfect for striking up a casual conversation. It’s the best reason to give up your corporate coffee addiction and shop independent.
Seattle Athletic Club will get your love life in fighting shape
Maybe you think you could be a sexy mofo, but you just need a little work. If that’s the case, we highly recommend signing up for a gym membership and then actually using it. We suggest giving Seattle Athletic Club Downtown a look.
We actually have a dual reason for recommending the gym. The first is that it’ll help you get into shape. The second is that it’ll introduce you to tons of sexy single girls. So it’s truly a two-birds-one-stone situation. Honestly, what have you got to lose (other than a few pounds)?
Other great hookup spots to get laid in Seattle
Here are a few more spots where you might find hookups in Seattle. Check them out and see just why we love them.
Eastlake Coffee is another hotspot for hot drinks and hot girls
It’s Seattle, so of course we have to include more than one coffee house on our list. Our second favorite coffee shop for meeting cute girls gets you away from the University District. Eastlake Coffee, just blocks from Lake Union, is the Platonic ideal of a coffee house. Quiet, cozy, and with free Wi-Fi.
On any given afternoon, you’ll see the comfy seats of Eastlake Coffee occupied by some of our city's most delectable hotties. Picking up a girl at the coffee house is honestly not that much different from doing so at the bar. Just be charming, not creepy, and friendly. The rest will take care of itself.
Hump Film Festival has fun on the mind
Do we really have to spell it out for you? Hump Film Festival is an entire festival dedicated to sex in its many forms. It’s one of the local events that truly defines our city. It’s also a great way to meet girls who know how to have fun in the bedroom.
This yearly film festival is often described as a “porn fest”, but at its heart, it’s so much more. You know what, though? We don’t really care. Call it porn, call it art, but all we know is it’s sexy, fun, and the social event of the season.
Tinder is ground zero for sexy girls looking for a hookup in Seattle
There is probably no online option that has revolutionized human existence more than Tinder. It’s the platform that made “swiping” the gateway to casual flings. It’s also far and away the easiest way to meet hot girls, assuming you’re hot yourself.
The fact is, if you’re reading this, you’ve almost certainly tried Tinder at least once. Who hasn’t? Yet, oddly, when you swipe through the choices, it seems like the only people on here are gorgeous models. There’s a reason for that. Tinder is the option where 10s turn to meet other 10s. People who aren’t mind-blowingly sexy soon get frustrated with it and delete it. So, if you are a sexy mofo, you’ll love Tinder. Lucky you.

Is Seattle good for singles?
Seattle is a really good place to be single. Being the coffee capital of the United States, it's the perfect city for dates in cafes or potentially even meeting single people going about their day and having their daily coffee there.
Plus, the city is relatively cheap when compared to the national average or to bustling cities like LA or NYC, so it does attract some young professionals.
