Lottie's Lounge is launching a sister location!

Lottie's Lounge, Columbia City's neighborhood bar, is bringing on "Jude's" in Old Town Rainier Beach!

About the campaign

Lottie’s Lounge could use a little help with the launch of a sister establishment, Jude’s, in “old town” Rainier Beach. We are seeking a community funded loan to finance the construction of the physical bar and a small sound stage for Jude's – your dollars will help foster the type of community interaction and great times that can only happen at a trusty neighborhood bar.

We can't wait to bring Jude's to Rainier Beach, and your support will help us do it!

Lottie's Lounge fits that bill to a T as Columbia City’s neighborhood bar, providing delicious food, cold beer, craft cocktails, live music, and our famous Bloody Mary brunch in an environment that practically requires social engagement. The recipient of many awards, including the Seattle Weekly’s Best Neighborhood Bar for 2012, Lottie’s hopes to build upon its recipe for success and community involvement in the Rainier Beach neighborhood.

We can’t wait to bring Jude’s to Rainier Beach, and your support will help us make it happen! This funding would be an amazing way to further connect with the neighborhood where we ourselves live. We believe Jude’s will be a tremendous asset as both an awesome, professionally run place to go and as a provider of jobs. Please help make Jude’s a reality in Rainer Beach!

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
