The Seattle Times: Craft Cocktail Bar Finds a Niche in Beer-Centric Fremont

From The Seattle Times:

Of all the 'hoods to start a craft cocktail bar, Peter Glick selected Fremont. Beer rules there. But Glick figures his cocktail den, The Backdoor @ Roxy's, would stand out amid all the breweries and soccer bars.

They can't all just want beer, he said.

The bar's name refers to its location, behind his lunch spot, Roxy's Diner.

If you've hit any trendy cocktail bars in the last six months, you know what to expect here: barrel aged cocktails, pre-prohibition-era drinks and rye.

The décor is part Hemingway-in-Paris era, part speak-easy inspired — with dangling chandeliers, grand draperies and wall murals of flappers. There is a bookcase filled with giant jars of homemade bitters and tinctures.
