Five years after spinning out of its neighbor Lark, 12th Ave’s Licorous is making way for a “whiskey and bitters emporium.” Seattle bartender Jamie Boudreau confirms he has found a home for his Canon.
No comment yet from Lark’s John Sundstrom on the change. Boudreau, whose resume includes Vessel, Tini Bigs and Knee High Stocking Co. has been conducting a rather public hunt for a location for his bar while continuing to work at Rob Roy in Belltown.
He’s planning to open in the former Licorous space by the end of summer but we see a DPD review of the planned remodel of the 12th Ave venue hasn’t been conducted yet. Given the department’s backlog, creating Canon: Whiskey and Bitters Emporium might take a little bit longer than planned.
Also no word, yet, on last dates for Licorous and the fate of the pop-up Shophouse that has been taking over the space on Monday nights.
