In the Red Wine Bar & Cafe at 6510 Phinney Ave. N. had hoped to open in mid-March, but inevitable construction and permitting delays pushed that back. Co-owner Chad Campbell told me this morning that they now hope to open in about two weeks.
“You’re always optimistic about getting through the permit process,” Campbell said. “We’ve done everything we can do, but unfortunately there’s a lot of hoops you have to go through.”
In the Red has received its liquor license, but is still waiting on the final construction sign-off and the health department inspection.
The wine bar will be family friendly and will serve coffee and pastries in the morning and small plates the rest of the day.
