UPDATE: Make sure you check out Ruckus this Saturday at noon. They will have a little shindig which includes a harp player sitting on a toilet.
Can you believe it? Capitol Hill finally gets a recreational marijuana store!
Amidst the ever changing gentrified (Sodo Sopa) landscape of Capitol Hill in Seattle, a new store has emerged to shake things up a little bit.
Ruckus, a small, curious, recreational marijuana store, owned by Sam Burke, is located next door to a US postal service on 15th and Republican. This is great news as it gives the densest neighborhood in Seattle an option when purchasing legal weed.
Contrary to its’ name, the first impression of Ruckus is calm and peaceful. But don’t let that vibe fool you. Underneath it all, are little intricacies and curiosities, that make this pot shop loud. Ie., the image of a bird perched on a tongue as you walk in, little contraptions placed around the store such as a magnify glass, wooden artist figures, a vintage looking poster that reminds you how to breathe, and wooden artist hands holding products.
Marijuana products such as flower, pre-rolled joints, oils, and edibles are placed carefully behind vintage wood/glass display cases that sit on the counter. A few products and glass pipes are displayed in various places behind the counter. The setup has a general store vibe, where there is one counter, the selection is simple, and the interaction with the budtender is very personable.
Ruckus is open from 10am-10pm Monday thru Sunday.
