#3950 - The In Between, Port Townsend, WA - 2/1/2020

The In Between, Port Townsend, WA
Like a lot of people going there for the first time, I had some trouble finding the In Between. But whether or not rumors are true that this was designed to cut down on the percentage of tourists, it is now my favorite bar in Port Townsend.

The art deco, speakeasy decor starts with the beautiful antique bar that owner Kris Nelson rescued from the N.D. Hill Building (whether or not it was the original bar from the Town Tavern for many decades). Nelson also owns the Alchemy Bistro and Wine Bar in town, and for the new place she tapped two talented bartenders, Sophie Elan and Alexander Moats, to co-manage the bar and drink program. The result is a lovely menu of craft cocktails, with new drinks continually revolving in.

They also offer various nice small plates to snack on, and a patio with a view of Port Townsend Bay for the warm weather. But it is the vibe and most of all the cocktail selection -- including a number of tiki themed choices -- that will make it well worth the effort for you to locate the next time you're near the northeast Olympic peninsula.

You mentioned Kris Nelson, the owner, as a guy. Kris Nelson is a woman.
