Designed by Charles Looff, Seattle's Luna Park operated from 1907 to 1913 on the site of what is now Anchor Park in West Seattle. About two miles away, in 1989, an existing West Seattle neighborhood tavern closed, rebranded, and reopened as a tribute to that bygone era.
Having become a bit of a West Seattle institution, the Luna Park Cafe can attract quite a crowd.
Luckily, there are photo opportunities. We couldn't quite figure this one out, though. Our best guess is that you're supposed to stand next to it...?
Okay, so it's less "specifically Luna Park memorabilia" and more "kitschy crap on the wall," but still.
I took this photo* of Luna Park.

Allegedly the world's largest guitar. But even without Googling it, I have some doubt.
The menu gives you some history of Luna Park, "the Coney Island of the West."
I don't think even Elvis would've had a milkshake with his peanut butter, bacon, and banana waffle.
Elvis was a little bitch.
It does like the authentic Batmobile...but I don't remember ever seeing Batman wear a red top hat....
Down the road a bit stands Anchor Park. Luna Park was quite a bit larger and went out over the water more. They say that when the tide is low enough, you can see the old pilings--but, frankly, I'm just not that patient.
I mean, I'll wait a cycle to get a train in my shot, but that's some Gwazi-level shite right there.
Was this update stupid? Yeah, probably. But, until a few months ago, I didn't even know that there had been a Luna Park in Seattle. So now you know, too!
