Something in the water? Bartenders around Seattle are on the move.

[UPDATE: MILES THOMAS SAYS HE’LL BE AT THE HIDEOUT ON FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS in AUGUST.]

The bartenders, they are restless.

First David Nelson left Tavern Law a few weeks back, now Miles Thomas is bailing the bar as well. No word yet on what mystery projects they have planned. (Thomas has another gig as one of the guys behind Scrappys Bitters, the other guy is Serafina’s Chris Bollenbacher.)

And Mike McSorley has parted ways with Naga Lounge in Bellevue. Evan Martin is now the man in charge there. “I want [Naga] to be much better than it’s ever been,” says Martin. According to him, the bar now has the state’s largest liquor selection. He is developing a new cocktail list to make use of it, alongside “a much improved beer and wine selection.” Look for changes towards the end of July.

McSorley, meanwhile, is back at the bar he calls his alma mater, Tini Bigs on Lower Queen Anne. Look for him there on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. He says he’s got some new stuff in the works at TBs, more on that as details unfold.
