West 5 Shooting Out 15 Years of Positive Vibes

West 5 in the West Seattle Junction

Article and Photo: Sarah Mackay owner Life Lens Media






Dean Overton knows all about positive vibe. After a longtime career in the record industry, he created this cool and laid-back quintessential lounge on California known as West 5. It’s a landmark, iconic lounge with a huge departure from its previous purpose as a shooting range and bowling alley years past. Dean partnered with lifelong friend, Dave Mountoure who left a jet set tech job to transform the space with neon, ultra comfortable furniture and relics from past West Seattle drinking establishments.

Why celebrate West 5 today? After fifteen years they’re still going strong. Their original vision can be felt and seen throughout from employees who quickly become family to supercool, vintage décor. Happy, longtime loyal employees work alongside Dean and Dave at what they all call their “second home”.

With a personality of it’s own, an iconic fixture of West Seattle ever since 2003, one can surmise it’s the people who make the place.  The staff is genuinely kind they care about one another and their customers. There’s no doubt you will be welcomed into this warm environment with Dean and Dave and their well-appointed employees taking care of you.  Case in point, a previous employee swung by to say hello to Dean. He left West 5 a year prior to pursue an art career.

“I want the best for our employees even when they move onto another job. Their happiness is important to me,” said Dean.

If this feel-good stuff isn’t enough to draw you in, The Duwamish Mafia, a swirl of Woodinville Rye Whiskey, Averna Amaro and a dash of Angostura Bitters is described as giving  “euphoric reverence”. This curious and tantalizing drink is just the beginning of what West 5 offers.

They’re dedicated to making sure it’s the place where guests are allowed to truly relax. Meaning, this is a place for everyone to live and lounge amongst friends, neighbors and visitors to our community.

Cheers to Dean and Dave for creating a vision that keeps on thriving.

Harvest Fest 2019

Mark your calendars for Harvest Fest!

Harvest Fest – Sunday, October 27th – 10am to 2pm

Quickly becoming a West Seattle beloved fall event, Harvest Fest will once again bring out the costumed (kids, adults and pets!), the daring (chili cook-off) and musical (parade) and the thirsty (hot cocoa and cider garden) as the West Seattle Junction closes down California Ave for a fantastic fall festival.

Check out the festival fun:

GAMES, CRAFTS AND ACTIVITIES 10 am – 2pm Games and arts activities brought to you many merchants, nonprofits and community groups all along California Ave from SW Alaska St to Edmunds.

HOT COCOA AND CIDER GARDEN 10 am – 2 pm Yes, it’s true – we’ve got hot cocoa and hot cider garden for people of all ages. Find the cocoa and cider garden on Alaska St by Easy Street Records.

APPLEPALOOZA 10 am – 2 pm Brought to you by the West Seattle Farmers Market. Taste and vote for your favorite apples.

HARVEST FARMERS MARKET 10 am – 2pm Enjoy the bounty of the season at the usual Sunday Farmers Market location between SW Oregon and SW Alaska on California Ave.

CHILI COOK-OFF 10 am – 1pm See local restaurants go head-to-head at the chili cook-off (located by Key Bank at the all-walk). $10 buys you nine tastings – let your taste buds vote for the favorite! All proceeds goes to the West Seattle Food Bank.  Check out the cook-off and buy yourself some chili. See the champion crowned at 1:30 pm.

COSTUME PARADE 11:30 am Meet in Junction Plaza Park (SW Alaska and 42nd Ave) for the costume parade led by the West Seattle High School Marching Band and Kawanis motorcyclists. Stop by before the start of the parade for a homemade musical instrument activity.

TRICK OR TREAT 12 NOON See what treats the Junction merchants and booths have for little hands. Also stop by the INFO BOOTH located at the All-Walk for treats!

KIDS PUMPKIN PIE EATING CONTEST (Ages 8-12) 1:30 pm Presented by A la Mode Pies. Sign up at A la Mode Pies for the contest, tons of prizes for first, second and third place. Pie eating contest will be held at the INFO BOOTH located at the All-Walk intersection of California Ave SW and SW Alaska St.

Our Sunday farmers market will take to the streets bringing the fall harvest and more.
