Musician owned and Operated bar & eatery provides Capitol Hill inclusive space for community and cocktails
Saint John’s Bar & Eatery, Capitol Hill’s quintessential gathering place opens it’s breezy patio just in time for the perfect Seattle summer with clever boozy companions to make any happy hour one to revel in – day and night.
Founded in 2012 by musicians-turned-restaurateurs Michael Lee (of the popular local band The Young Evils and Mal De Mer), Val Kiossovski (known by many as guitarist for acclaimed band Kultur Shock), and Billy Gould (of the popular band Faith No More), Saint John’s Bar & Eatery reinforces their standing as a public house in the truest sense.
“Saint John’s is not aimed at a demographic based on income or a scene based on its current popularity,” said Michael Lee, Co- Owner of Saint John’s and Solo Cafe. “We think of it as an answer to ‘where would be the best place to meet a group of friends without the bullshit?’” “We believe in ‘Civilized Drinking’.
The ability to imbibe in a nurturing environment where pleasure is directly relative to the strength of social possibility,” elaborated Co-Owner Val Kiossovski. With seasonal food and drink offerings debuting each harvest, Saint John’s Bar & Eatery revamped the cocktail menu to reflect on the long, breezy happy hours to be had all summer long as well as their keen taking to keeping it original and fresh.
These new and updated cocktails are best enjoyed on the patio with a little civilized company.
