Upscale lounge replacing Harvey’s Tavern

Remodeling is under way on the old Harvey’s Tavern building and the former Vac Shack just east of NW 8th on Leary Way. Just look for the Tyvek-clad buildings next to The Dish Cafe.

A liquor license application on the building lists the applicant as Emissary, but a recent interview with the guys starting it up say their working name is “The Traveler.” Expect cocktails with a side of moules and frites -considerably upscale from Harvey’s Rainier Beer and pizza.

It’s another sign the neighborhood is changing, what with Harvey’s being a part of the area’s blue collar roots since 1934.
