624 Olive Way

Back in 2006, Vessel was one of the original Seattle cocktail-revival spots—the first place in town where each drink on the menu bore a date, a place of origin, and a composer. It was contemporary-swank, it was snobby about vodka, and it was good. The location near the Fifth Avenue Theater closed in 2010; in summer 2012, Vessel was reincarnated at Seventh and Olive (site of the original El Gaucho, from 1953 to 1985). Owner Clark Niemeyer and noted barkeep Jim Romdall serve “progressive and creative” cocktails in a dark, luxe space with leather floor tiles in the entryway and a laboratory for experiments with ice. Cameo McRoberts, recently (and briefly) at Little Water Cantina and Pop Kitchen + Bar, runs the kitchen.

Vessel owners have not paid for the floor tiles or the menus

I created the floor tiles they brag about and the menu's and check presenters, but the owners of Vessel have not paid me for the items I manufactured. Now I have to take the criminals to court!!!!

Bad business, everyone go eat and then tell them you just don't want to pay the bill, thats what they did to me.
