Drink Up For Town Hall: Capitol Cider: Why do people love cozy bars?


As I was in my late 20’s, I knew there are two different types of a night out. You put on a better dress and get your makeup on and go to a club to dance with strangers and drink the night off with your friends. There are bars that are cozy and homey. And people came to see some things about why many of us love the bar after spending time visiting people all over the world.

There is always a bar for you, regardless of your lifestyle. From the top class which serves cocktails in prohibition style. To the nightclubs, the jukebox gives country and rock a boost. Everybody's got a bar. There are some people prefer the Irish pubs, where Guinness and Heineken are the main drinks, whilst Dropkick Murphy plays behind them.

Do you ever have some of those days when you really do not want to talk to anyone at all? However, you do not want to be all alone certainly. The great thing about bars is that they are often crowded with people and there is no obligation to actually speak. It's sometimes nice to be part of a group conversation and just nod your head and shrug your shoulders along. And it's also sometimes nice to just have a quiet chat around you while reflecting on your drink.

When you are in a bar, it is nearly necessary to share the details about something that is not great in your life. Nobody judges here because a similar experience can be gained. This is not all bad news, as the bar is also the place for a birthday shot or a toast for a new promotion. The bar is the place to speak in good or bad times.

Bars definitely are the place to come and find yourself in comfort. An extrovert is a friendly person who really likes to talk to and be around others. There are lots of people who can talk to and exchange stories with if you are an extrovert. It's not so easy to make new friends for introverts, because it takes so much energy to meet someone. Thus, most likely the introverts will listen to the most unpleasant stories.

If you're fortunate enough to find a bar that is your place away from home, that is something to look forward to. Where you know the owners, and surprisingly, the bartenders knows your name as well. And as you walk through the door, they've started pouring you a drink. The other patrons welcome you warmly, probably knowing details that nobody else knows about your life. It is in these bars that beer stories and advice are poured out and everyone can talk.

For pretty good ciders, you no longer need to fly into the UK or this super-far Croatian region. The USA is one of the top five countries in which ciders are produced, and, while Seattle has been a strong craft brewing scene for decades, there are also a growing range of options to drink local cider and imported ciders on the tap. Bartenders spread tons of fermented apple nectar all throughout the city, from the classic dry styles and champagne to innovative all year round tastes such as habanero, passion fruit and rhubarb. You're probably going to try this fairly soon if you haven't sampled some yet.

Located In the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill, just miles from the Pike Place market, Capitol Cider is the largest independent cider bar in the country. The full bar and the bottleshop of this restaurant offer an excellent selection of tap-on ciders, in bottles and on flights. The 30-grip tap, which is frequently modified, is divided into 20 ciders, with 10 beers. More than 150 selections from Washington, Montana, Oregon, California, British Columbia, England, France and Spain are on the cider bottle list.

The Capitol Cider bar holds the title for Seattle’s first cider bar, and being country’s second. Capitol Cider is an ancient pub Ancient pub with many types of hard cider. More than 20 ciders are served on tap and a total of more than 150, not to mention a large choice of brandy which has been rather distilled than fermented. Ciders do not include gluten, nor does the kitchen here: they serve delicious and hearty gluten- free foods, such as glazed veggies, swine chops and a savory steak.

The ballast bar of Capitol Cider was converted into an' institution for Seattle literature,' not just a hustle and bustle haven for the gluten-shy who want to be in flirtation by a young writer and bartender named Josh Potter. Warm wood works and golden lamps give a cozy feel to this place. A bright, modest stage faces a lengthy bar with drafts before six p.m. as well. Over a period of two hours, the four participating authors are encouraged to use part of their time on stage to read an old draft, talk about a piece of art or show their work in certain way.

The Cider bar offers regularly a range of events including live music, art and literature nights, films, game nights and more downstairs in The Ballast Bar. Apart from the little program of stage and arts, there are two shuffleboard tables, a bookcase of board games, a fireplace and spacious stands, as well as community tables can also be found. A number of large televisions can broadcast special cultural and sports events.

Most of the people have been saying for a long time that readings at bars ruin both readings and bars. They also appreciate the romantic dream of keeping as many literary non-academic venues as possible for literature. Relatively small, fairly consistent nights like this can make the reader find their writers (and vice versa), and a neighborhood of this size has places to encounter happy, silly literary incidents.

The Capitol Cider’s kitchen is 100% gluten free and offers a wealth of delicious gourmet pleasures, using local and seasonal products. On the weekdays, on weekends, Capitol ciders are open for lunch, brunch and evening meals every day of the week.

With 150 + ciders, beer, mead, apple spirits, and a full bar on the tap and in bottles go to their scratch kitchen with a 100 percent gluten free menu. You should definitely come and see their new patio and weekend brunch. They love to support local artists and to serve as a community meeting place.
