#536 - Georgetown Liquor Company, Seattle (Georgetown) - 4/26/1007

Update: Georgetown Liquor Company announced their closure effective Sep 6, 2020.

Nifty old Georgetown place, with odd angles from being squeezed into a corner on Airport Way.

Postscript: Given that my original notes on GLC were just a one-liner, I'm adding a nice summary from Vanishing Seattle upon its closing:

'After nearly 14 years, Georgetown Liquor Company announced on Sept 6th that they had closed permanently. 

This bar off  Airport Way opened on January 26, 2007 and at the time was known as the first bar in town with an entirely vegetarian & vegan menu. They became known for their delicious, hearty, creative sandwiches & soups (I loved the Picard, The Baron, and Darth Reuben) and retro computer & video games (original Nintendo!) back by the exposed brick wall, up on that little stage area (I think they may have had live shows there too?). 

GLC had a real Georgetown neighborhood vibe in both clientele & decor: gritty, dark, chill - with some industrial meets punk meets metal – and always warm and welcoming. Friendly staff, great playlist, wide selection of local beer on tap, booze (Vegan Bloody Mary!), and local art lining the walls. 

During the COVID shutdown,  Georgetown Liquor was doing food & drinks for takeout & delivery, and even added brunch. But apparently – like so many other small biz in Seattle – they couldn’t weather it financially and were forced to shutter. 

From their FB page: “I would like to extend a personal thank you to each & every one of you that chose to make the GLC one of your favorite places to eat, drink and be merry. Over the years there have been many incredible memories created. I attribute this to having a great staff, wonderful patrons and the overall support of the Georgetown community. You’ll all be missed and I sincerely hope our paths will cross in the future. Much love, Leslee.” '
