Things are getting a little bubblier near the Amazon Spheres. Six months after announcing plans to expand in the city, Seattle’s most famous flavored beverage chain Rachel’s Ginger Beer has opened its new outpost near the Bezosian orbs this week at 2150 7th Ave (with garage parking available). This is the fourth location for RGB, joining outposts in the U Village, Pike Place Market, and Capitol Hill.
Like the U Village and Capitol Hill shops, this one serves fried chicken from Ma’ono (an Eater 38 restaurant), and features colorful murals from local artist Stacey Rozich. There are also hot toddies, soft serve, floats, dole whip, growlers to go, and various Moscow mules, along with other cocktails on tap.
RGB has come a long way in the past decade. Owner Rachel Marshall started her operation as mostly a retailer for local bars, before opening up fully dedicated locations. Now that hard seltzer and low alcohol drinks are all the rage, this could be the soda purveyor’s time to really shine. And in an area that tends to shut down after hours, having another drink spot besides the Spheres’ own Deep Dive will no doubt be welcome.
