Description

Some bars on Capitol Hill are audible from two blocks away, and then there’s this soft-spoken little number tucked on Madison near 13th Avenue. Footprint arrived just over a year ago, preaching the gospel of sustainable keg wines. It stocks its dozens of taps—lined up on a copper wall behind the bar—with Washington, and a few Oregon, varietals. The list comes organized from lightest whites to deepest, oldest reds, rounded out with standard wine bar fare (charcuterie, cheese, bruschetta). Clearly, you’re here for the wine, whether to quaff during happy hour or take home as part of Footprint’s membership program. Its ranks, numbering about 50, form a tight-knit community, too, one that plays Scrabble in the lone corner booth or partakes in sing-along cabaret nights.
