The Future of Level Up

We'd like to thank everyone for the wonderful support and feedback we've received regarding the Level Up project.

While the Kickstarter was not successful, we do fully intend to make Level Up a reality with outside funding sources, so please keep in touch to find out ways you can still be involved in getting the project off the ground in the future.

Please contact or with inquiries about investment opportunities for Level Up.

Thank you all again, and stay tuned! We'll make it happen.

Concept Design: The Main Bar

Everyone has been wondering what Level Up will actually look like. Well, you asked for it, so here it is!

The image below is an actual concept design for the interior of the lounge, more specifically the main bar area. While this image is still a rough draft, it's pretty darn close to what it will actually look like.

More concept images like this to come.

Location Update

We know you've all been curious about the location, and while we can't reveal it publicly yet, we'd like to let you in on some more details, and provide the opportunity for you to find out.

  • First of all, we can tell you where it WON'T be: Level Up will NOT be U-District, International District, West Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, or anywhere else besides Seattle. It will NOT be south of Pink Gorilla's ID location, west of Pink Gorilla West, or north of Pink Gorilla U-District. It will NOT be in Belltown or Pioneer Square.
  • Next, we can't tell everyone yet, but here's how YOU can find out: All backers of $200 or more are eligible to find out the location upon signing a non-disclosure agreement. Contact us in a private message for more details.
  • The location will be revealed to everyone publicly the minute the funding goal is reached. But timing is essential. The faster we reach goal, the faster we can lock in our location.

In other news, we've added another new reward!--Blacksmith Level ($20): At this level, you will get to attend the Level Up groundbreaking ceremony (AKA PIZZA PARTY!), to take place at Level Up before it undergoes remodeling! You'll get a first look at the venue, and a night of food, drinks, music, and gaming, compliments of Pink Gorilla.
