Herb & Bitter Public House, from Jesus Escobor (who also owns Rocco's in Belltown) occupies the space that was home to Than Brothers Pho for many years. It’s been completely overhauled and now has skylights, a massive bar made of reclaimed wood, and, most notably, a back patio with a retractable glass roof (and air conditioning and heating) that will be open year-round. As the name implies, the well-stocked bar serves cocktails built on various amari, the bitter, herbal Italian liqueur, as well as eight spirits that are barrel-aged in house, and 20 taps of craft and hard-to-find beers. The menu is Spanish-style tapas.
