Ever had Salmon Pastrami with a glass of Prosecco? How about a bowl of truffled popcorn with a Gold Rush cocktail? Sommelier brothers Jim and Brandon Marsh, along with Chef Jason Midwood, want to show you a few new ways to enjoy food, wine, and cocktails.
Taking our influences from Italy and the Americas, Triumph Bar features an extensive selection of Italian wines, along with some American favorites. The cocktail program is focused and inventive, with daily batches of jug juice, everything brown, and house inventions like the Nightcap: bourbon, carbonated Sherry, Molasses, and clove tincture. The wine list is growing to over 200 selections, with 20 of those open for glass pours. To pair with all of this liquid, the chef created a menu with assorted cheeses from around the world, both small and large plates alike, and Italian meats sliced right on the end of the bar.
The main dining room is on street level in one of Lower Queen Anne's newest apartment complexes, Expo. We are just north of Key Arena on Republican street, between Warren and First Avenue North. Across the street from the NW entrance to Seattle Center, the Space Needle can clearly be seen looming above from our expansive sliding windows. During the warmer months, Triumph Bar spills out onto a quiet outdoor cafe. The rustic interior is meant to evoke the casual cantinas of Italy, as well as provide a warm atmosphere surrounded by wine.
