After much anticipation, The Artist Lounge officially opened this past spring in Capitol Hill. This fun space is at the front of the Ruberto Ostberg Gallery offering a European feel with the concept designed by lounge co-owner and general manager Khalid Omokanye. Executive Chef Trent Bochek (4th Spot Kitchen and Bar, South Block Barbecue) has designed the menu consisting of an assortment of tapas-style plates. We are coming back for the Halloumi with Tomato Jam and Basil, Kimchi Pork Wonton served in a gochujang broth and the Bourbon Caramel Donuts. Beverage Director Jimmy Nguyen has created a whimsical cocktail menu including Bean Soup featuring milk clarified coffee vodka, and Carrot Goggles made with, you guessed it, carrot juice. Guests can also enjoy a simple selection of local craft beer and wines by the bottle or glass. The art in the gallery will change monthly. Open Thursday to Saturday, 4pm – close.
