Reports of notable new bars are flying fast and furious this week. Seattle Beer News delivers some details on a tantalizing rumor circulating of late: The owners of beer destinations Brouwer’s Cafe and Bottleworks have taken over the former Bandolero space in Tangletown. According to Geoff Kaiser, plans are in the works for a bar called The Publican, slated to open in late December. The space will have 22 taps, he reports, and focus on American microbrews.
Meanwhile, the owners of the Central District’s most excellent Twilight Exit have a new bar in the works in what used to be Thompson’s Point of View near 23rd and Union. Central District News says the place will be called The Neighbor Lady and be vegetarian focused. One can’t help but be intrigued by a place described by owner Stephan Mollmann as “urban brothel, but not too westerny.”
