#1083 #S640 - Mars Bar, Seattle - 4/28/2010
The Mars Bar (adjacent to and associated with Cafe Venus) is a nifty to bar with some cool and friendly bartenders and a likable and interesting set of customers, in what I think (?) was the location of the old rough and tumble punk bar "The Storeroom." An off-duty bartender suggested I try a Corpse Reviver #2, and helped round up ingredients for the prohibition era cocktail (3/4 ounce gin, 3/4 ounce Cointreau, 3/4 ounce Lillet blanc, 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice, and 2 dashes absinthe).
It was a tasty thing indeed, and the food (which they serve until 10pm) was really, really good as well. And note for the future: Pints of Manny's are just 2 bucks on Wednesday nights.
