Hannah Levin, beloved KEXP DJ and author of Seattle Weekly's music column Rocket Queen, is opening a fancy new bar in Greenwood! It shall be called Gainsbourg (anyone guess who after?) and it shall be located at 8550 Greenwood Ave. N.
Hannah and partner JJ Wandler, also of Asian-inspired chillout bar Tiger Tail in Ballard, have been hard at work exposing brick and covering the bar in zin, at the former Northside Grill location. The cuisine is said to be french and small-plated and the decor will be fab, I'm sure.
Gainsbourgh will be opening the first week of November with beer and wine, with cocktails to be added later. Levin has been quoted several times as of late in regards to her Serge Gainsbourg obsession. I just hope to see a little Jane Birkin action in there as well.
