The new place in the old Triangle location in Fremont has an inconsistently applied 30's gangster theme and a menu of interesting cocktails. The ones I tried didn't have quite the balance that Seattle's finest bartenders produce -- and I didn't try the John Dillinger (Bulliet Bourbon and a cigarette) -- but it's a step up, as is the very good food (I had the Caprese salad and the lamb sliders).
Historical notes: This was the "Triangle Tavern by 1935 until 1986 (the listed address is slightly different in earlier years, but it is the same location). It was the "Classic Tavern" in the latter 80s and 90s, and re-named the "Triangle Lounge" from 1998 through 2009.) Building constructed in 1926.
