Sneak Preview: ‘Across the Bar’ at Seattle’s Brimmer & Heeltap

For a city that is mostly gray, Seattle’s Brimmer & Heeltap packs a punch of vibrancy — from its bright white walls and turquoise cushions to its plate presentations and drink garnishes. The decor reads as an eclectic mix of inspiration, which falls parallel — whether consciously or not — to the aesthetic of Seattle local Jen Doak, who spearheads the B&H ship. According to the restaurant’s website, “[Jen] is an avid menu collector, ordained minister, and a collector of new experiences locally and globally.”

In this sneak peek of “Across the Bar,” we’re honing in on Brimmer & Heeltap’s drinks with Bar Manager Tyler Stamon, who says you can determine whether a bartender knows what they’re doing if they’re not throwing a bunch of stuff at you (figuratively, of course).
