Chophouse Row is excited to announce several new openings, food offerings, and merchant events.
POPROX DANCE STUDIO
PopRox Dance has launched their second Seattle studio, alongside a brand-new retail concept, in the courtyard level of the Piston & Ring building. PopRox now offers Hip Hop, Jazz Funk and K-Pop classes for adults and kids alike.
Since 2018, PopRox has welcomed students of all ages, skills, and bodies helping them shake off inhibitions and embrace the dance floor. Founders Kinsey Flores and Cathy Barnett have disrupted the old dance school model by encouraging student engagement and collaboration, fostering a strong sense of a diverse community, and bringing pure FUN back to dance.
“We are so excited to be bringing PopRox Dance to Chophouse Row,” shared co-owners Kinsey Flores and Cathy Barnett. “We have both lived on the Hill for over a decade, have a deep connection with the community, and are invested in the evolution of this neighborhood. Opening our second studio in Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhood is very meaningful to us.”
The studio will have a large focus on classes for adults, with eventual plans of serving alcohol. The retail and reception area features dance and athletic themed clothing and merchandise as well as fun, giftable items that represent the values PopRox stands for – connection, inclusion, and pure joy. Customers can browse a range of products centered on themes including throwback and current musical icons, gender identity, body positivity, and empowerment. Photo Link.
When: Tuesday-Sunday, 10 am – 10 pm; classes can be booked through the web site.
Where: Piston & Ring building, Suite D. Enter from 11th avenue through the Chophouse Row courtyard.

XOM RESTAURANT NOW OPEN
A charming Vietnamese restaurant that celebrates the spirit of community and togetherness through the joy of shared meals
New Vietnamese restaurant Xóm ăn nhậu (“XOM”) opened recently at Chophouse Row and has already received rave reviews for its street food classics. Xóm ăn nhậu takes diners on a sensory exploration of Vietnam’s finest flavors, embracing tradition, culture, and community with every dish. The name is inspired by the traditional Vietnamese “xóm” – a tight-knit neighborhood or alley where people come together to eat, socialize, and create lasting memories. Highlights of the menu, besides traditional pho and bahn mi selections, are Xom’s chicken wings and pork stuffed prawns. Open for both lunch and dinner, Xom provides a new anchor in a long line of Chophouse Row culinary destinations including Light Sleeper, Plum Bistro, La Dispensa, Osteria La Spiga, and Bai Tong.
