Meet Spur

Behold Spur!

OK, OK, so maybe it isn't much to look at, but I assure you that it has the best drinks in Belltown. And the most spectacular thing about it is that it's in my building. That's right, it's part of the 2nd & Blanchard vortex. Isn't that just the neatest thing? The previous two restaurant attempts, Betay Avone and Mistral, both failed, but I think Spur really has a shot at success. It's been open for about a year now, but I was hesitant to go to a place that called itself a "gastropub." It sounds a little gross, like, "I can't come into work today. I have a blockage in my gastropub. My doctor says that it won't require surgery." Even though I've only had drinks there, I'm told by those in the know that the food is excellent. But honestly, the drinks! Oh, those drinks! The ingredients that go into each one sound potentially terrible, but every drink I've had there has been superb. The only drawback to going there is that they don't have a happy hour. Every other place in Belltown does - not Spur. That might change. In the meantime, I'll just go there less often - like tonight. I totally can't wait. It promises to be quite delicious. And yes, it is quite pricey, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend this place.

SUPER UPDATE: They do in fact have a happy hour! Their very yummy mixed drinks are $6 and they have food specials. Sorry for my ignorance - it's my most appealing personality trait!

Actually, they do have a happy hour -- it's just small and not highly advertised, I guess.
