The Seattle Times

Cheers! New breweries and bars open on the Eastside

By Tan Vinh

Bar Top Details 6

“The family behind the popular Seattle happy-hour haunt Von’s 1000 Spirits expands to Woodinville with a tasting room that looks more like a cocktail den, with a mahogany back bar and walls studded with booze. The Northwest Spirits Tasting Room can seat 35 patrons and soon will have an outdoor patio with a firepit. Located north of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, the tasting room serves cocktails made from the family’s line of whiskeys, gins and vodkas. This new tasting room will soon have company. In December, Von’s bar restaurant will expand to Woodinville as well. The Eastside Von’s will also have the popular “Wagering Wheel,” where patrons can spin the wheel to try to win a discounted stiff drink.”

A Family Affair, Von’s Legacy Lives On

by Angela Prosper

Image of an inviting tasting room. There is an impressive selection of liquor bottles lined up neatly on a Mahogany wooden display behind a white bar top. There are a few wooden tables with wooden stools. There is an industrial, yet warm feeling in the space. A text overlay reads "Woodinville's Newest Addition Northwest Spirits is now serving!"

“Northwest Spirits Tasting Room & Retail Center is now open for business in Woodinville. At the grand opening of Northwest Spirits’ new tasting room and retail space in Woodinville, Wash., Merrisa Firnstahl-Claridge makes her way through the crowd of close friends, family and longtime patrons of Von’s Gustobistro with warmth and intention. You can tell she is in her element, making sure to personally thank each attendee for supporting her as this venture slowly became a reality. “

 Fifth Generation Restaurant Owner Opens Distillery, Restaurant in Woodinville

by Madeline Coats

A man is holding a peach-colored drink in an etched tall glass in his right hand, and a blush pink drink in his left. The man is wearing a black apron.

“Firnstahl-Claridge said it feels like a natural step to expand her brand out of the city and into the suburbs. She’s also looking forward to being located within walking distance of other local distilleries in Woodinville.”

“Northwest Spirits is serving a small food menu and several cocktail items until the restaurant officially opens this fall, she said. Once the restaurant opens, Firnstahl-Claridge hopes to use the tasting room as an event space.”

“”As soon as the restaurant opens, she said, guests can order food from Von’s to the tasting room. She wants patrons to have the “full experience,” she added.”

“Designed to be both a tasting room as well as a go-to resource for quality barware, the location also will have a curated selection of specialty items to complete home bars. The Northwest Spirits’ tasting room reflects a decade-plus experience of distilling and appreciation for spirits, with an impressive 1890s mahogany backbar, a 53-gallon copper still, and cozy seating for guests.”
