New Swanky Cocktail Lounge: VESSEL
You might remember that this summer I visited a place in Vancouver, BC called Lumière. The bartender there, Jamie, was also working on a project here in the Seattle area. That project is now open (just in the last few days) and is ready to receive your business! It’s called VESSEL. (full website coming soon)
I’m not going to be able to get in until next week at the earliest, so I won’t be able to give you any first-hand details until then. In the meantime, based on Jamie’s work at Lumière and what I’ve heard about VESSEL, I’m expecting lots of good things. You can expect cocktails, thirty wines by the 1/2 bottle and by the glass, 15 champagnes by the glass. Some bar food – Jamie says it’s "great, fresh bar food".
If you go in the next few days, remember my normal warning – places need a little time to get into the groove so be gentle!
