Bottlehouse Now Open Sundays

It used to be the norm for quite some time, and then they pulled the shades on Sundays; now the young owners of Madrona’s favored wine bar Bottlehouse have graciously opened their doors 6 days a week, (closed Mondays).

They’re now uncorking the bottles from noon-9pm Sundays, and offering an all-day happy hour with specials including $4 drafts, $4 Imbue vermouth-on-tap, and $6 sake Bloody Marys and mimosas, as well a rotating cheese board, and small bites menu. If you’re looking for a fun date night, or something to do with the girls this Sunday, you can now add Bottlehouse back to the list of eateries open in the neighborhood.
