Just looking for anyone's opinion on the newly remodled Copper Gate on 24th in Ballard. I have gone twice and really enjoy the atmosphere and cocktails, but both times it was dead. Once was a Tuesday, so that's understandable, but the other was a Friday night at 10:30 and besides my boyfriend and I, there were just two other tables and one guy at the bar. It seems sad and we are both perplexed as to why they have such little business. Lack of advertising? Too high-end for that end of Ballard? If you have not been, it's a Viking-esque theme, but modern. The cocktails are all Scandinavian themed and include some interesting ingredients (rhubarb bitters, Aquavit) -- not your typical vodka and mixer drinks. Anyway...just wondering what others are thinking of this place...
