Harbor Steps is already the center of a vibrant, active Seattle neighborhood. With the addition of a hot new restaurant, this downtown community is becoming even more of a destination.

The February 15th grand opening of Von’s 1000Spirits is being eagerly anticipated by residents and the downtown crowd alike. “To have this new restaurant by an established Seattle restaurateur right in our home will be great,” says Christel Cangas, General Manager at Harbor Steps. “Being right on 1st Avenue, it will add a lot of life to that corner. We’re all looking forward to having a fun new meeting place for residents, plus it’ll be a great place for people to stop after work for a drink,” she says.

Von’s 1000Spirits is a new concept based on the original Von’s, formerly located at 619 Pine Street. The Harbor Steps restaurant will take over the space once occupied by the Impanema Brazilian Grill. “The space is completely renovated and very modern,” according to Christel, “with more than double the bar space. Plus they’re offering breakfast, and they’re currently the only restaurant on the block to do so.”

The opening day food menu features the Delmonico Prime Hamburg, their take on an artisanal hamburger and Frics, sourdough pizzas roasted in an almond wood-fire oven. The drink menu for the bar, Alchemy, complements what the owners have dubbed a “Gusto Bistro” and features Von’s famous Scratch Martini for $5 and Seattle’s largest collection of fine spirits.
