Downtown Wine Spot Sip Has Closed

Hopefully the space’s next occupant will take advantage of that patio.

The Issaquah original remains, but the downtown location closed on Saturday.

A tipster sent a note today mourning the abrupt shuttering of the downtown location of Sip restaurant and wine bar. The Fifth Avenue hangout boasted a stellar patio and a solid happy hour in an underserved pocket of downtown near the Central Library.

A rep confirmed that Saturday was Sip’s last day of business; the Issaquah location is still open.

Details are minimal at this point, but the cause seems to be that all-to-common feller of restaurants: lease issues. Apparently the establishment was notified that another business (that’s not a bar or restaurant) is taking over the lease.
