Review Words by Simon Difford on 01-Apr-2014

A curvy bar counter made from old white cassette tapes covered with resin greats you on entering this rustically furnished bar and restaurant. Distressed woods, tan-on-white patterned wallpaper and rusty steel girder beams. The overall appearance is rough and ready, particularly when compared to some of the snazzier joints on the Ballard Avenue strip.

Even the 11 strong Cocktail menu, presented on a scrappy sheet of foolscap paper, is kindly described as being rustic. However, the drinks here are tasty and carefully crafted. The spirits selection is limited compared to its neighbours but covers all the bases with American whiskey particularly well represented. Southern style dishes as shrimp grits are served on small sharing plates.
