Tavern Law’s Marble Palace New Year’s Eve Party

Inspired by the lavish "Marble Palace" New Year’s Eve parties that the infamous Prohibition-era bootlegger George Remus hosted in NYC, Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough have cooked up a New Year's Eve party featuring specialty cocktails concocted with barrel-aged bourbon, and house-aged rye, plus GrĂ¼ne Fee Absinthe and Gosset Brut by the glass or bottle. Party-goers can order off Tavern Law’s menu and a specially themed tasting menu will be an option too. 

At Remus' “Marble Palace” parties in the 1920s each man received a diamond watch and every woman a car.  For their guests, Tavern Law offers no cover charge and everyone who makes a purchase that evening will be entered to win a TW Steel watch from Dacels Jewelers and car service for a night on the town by British Motor Coach. 1920’s party attire encouraged. Prizes awarded for best dressed.

Ten Best Drink Menus in Seattle? Seattle Weekly Names Their List

Thanks to the Weekly for including us in the story: "Tavern Law makes a point of searching out old, dead, lost, and forgotten mixed drinks and bringing them back to life in as close to their original incarnations as possible, sourcing all manner of super-artisan or ridiculously small-batch liquors and mixers and making everything else from scratch. The resulting drinks are not only some of the best you've ever tasted, but inarguable proof that dedicated, bookish bartenders can be just as creative and artistic as the greatest chefs out there. And also that your great-grandma really knew how to party."

The Rosita Cocktail at Tavern Law: Seattle Magazine Reports on Barrel Aged Drinks

Seattle magazine's AJ Rathbun wrote this article on the delight to be found in barrel aged cocktails.  We were so pleased that our Rosita made it onto his list: "Bringing together Sauza Blue blanco tequila, Dolin dry and rosso vermouths, Campari and angostura bitters in the barrel, this early-evening sipper has suggestions of spices, smoke, herbs and an international presence."

"Sixpence Gin & Jam" Cocktail at Tavern Law Lauded by Seattleite: "Signature Washington Flavors Combine with Deliciously Potent Results"

Congratulations to our team's talented Monica Buntha for this spotlight on her delicious cocktail.

"Every Seattleite knows how closely the smell of gin resembles the natural outdoor scent of the Pacific Northwest — junipers are evergreen, after all. Arguably, it’s the quintessential Seattle spirit — and thanks to Monica Buntha, it’s now part of the quintessential Seattle drink. The manager of Capitol Hill’s Tavern Law, Buntha created this sweet drink after a visit to Pike Place Market. 'After…drawing inspiration from seasonal produce, I put unexpected flavor combinations together to create a familiar cocktail,' she said."
