There are several business changes to report on in Ballard.
According to the sign in the window, Ballard Best B.B.Q. will be moving into the former Chai House location at 5463 Leary Ave NW. (Thanks Caryn for the tip!)
The women’s boutique Ella Mon is closed. In an email to her customers, owner Monica writes, “We’ve come so far, but after a lackluster spring/summer season, we need to close our doors.” As we reported yesterday, Ketch boutique has just opened on Ballard. Ave.
Several new businesses have applied for liquor licenses. The first is Harlow’s (shown above), which will be located at 5200 Ballard Ave. N.W. Their application says they’ll be a restaurant/lounge selling spirits, beer and wine with less than 50 percent dedicated dining.
The Blue Glass has also applied for a liquor license in the former Tigertail location at 704 NW 65th. Their liquor license application is “to sell spirits, beer, and wine by the individual serving for on-premises consumption. In this case, 50 percent or more of the establishment is dedicated to dining.”
