A wonderful thing happened to The Whisky Bar when it had to move after its lease wasn’t renewed last summer.
It found another bar space — with a kitchen.
The old Whisky Bar across from the Moore Theatre could boast a lot of things — an eclectic library of scotches, cult beers ... but food? Food, the old Whisky Bar didn’t do. The gyro stand connected to the bar was more of a last resort.
The Whisky Bar’s new residence sits two blocks from its old haunt and closer to the heart of Belltown and all the happy-hour revelry.
Now regulars who plop on the bar stools are presented with an actual menu, not just snacks cobbled together to fortify you in between bourbon and beer.
