We were grabbing a late night drink at La Spiga and peeked through the Tavern Law lettering on our way there. We were delighted to spot Brian McCracken, Dana Tough and David Nelson hard at work – driving to get the place open in time for this upcoming weekend. We spoke with them briefly and confirmed that after a few delays, they plan to open either August 21 or August 22 (we will update if/when we receive confirmation of the day). Here is the concept behind Tavern Law:
Seattle Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough are opening a new speakeasy style bar in Seattle. Last summer the duo opened Spur Gastropub in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood which has already been recognized as one of the country’s six top gastropubs by Food & Wine magazine. This year they join lead bartender David Nelson in opening Tavern Law in late June on Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The 21-and-over restaurant/bar will anchor Trace Lofts, the historic-meets-modern residential and retail project located on 12th Avenue within the Pike Pine Triangle. At Tavern Law the trio will focus on classic cocktails and full-flavored, refined foods served in an environment reminiscent of Speakeasy-era establishments of the 1920’s.
