Starting tomorrow at 3 p.m., Stone Way’s seaplane-themed pub, Bar Charlie, is open for business, just a few days later than owner Christian Thomason's projected date of December 19.
As Eater reported last month, the bar is decked out with seaplane photos and actual plane parts, including an engine, propeller, and gauges. The menu, attached below, includes eight original cocktails with airplane-themed names, including The Spruce Goose with blended Scotch, Cocchi Americano Rosa, cherry heering, lemon juice, and Boker's bitters. (It's a safe bet the bartender knows how to make an Aviation, too.) There are also six wines and six draft beers from local breweries like Rooftop, Stoup, and Georgetown. Fittingly, Kenmore’s Cairn Brewing makes an appearance with its Seaplane IPA.
The food menu is split into three groupings: small plates, with options like a salmon crostini and hatch chili mac and cheese; sandwiches, with a wasabi grilled cheese, pesto chicken, and smoked turkey reuben; and "Etc." with smoked salmon chowder, soup, salad, and other sides.
3801 Stone Way N, STE D, (206) 708-9793, website. Open Friday and Saturday 3 p.m. to 1 a.m., Sunday to Thursday 3 p.m. to midnight.
