Close to En Rama - a swanky cocktail lounge. If you’re craving great food and fancy drinks, while not feeling guilty about untucking your shirt and putting on your flats after a long day of work - come here. Chris Kiel (Previous owner of 1022 and Hilltop Kitchen) knows what he’s doing. The ambiance is just-so and the service hasn’t wavered for me on any of my visits. You can’t go wrong with any of their menu items and I love a good “Old fashion”.
Enjoy this amazing location! Easy freeway access to I-5 North and South. The Tacoma Mall 10 minutes away, not to mention 24 Hour Fitness, Safeway and several banks/credit unions just 5 minutes away. There are dozens of restaurants within a little more than a mile down Pacific Avenue. The University of Washington Tacoma is also down the street, along with LeMay - America’s Car Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, The Museum of Glass as well as the Washington State History Museum. Take a stroll in downtown Tacoma and the waterfront in the Spring and Summer time. Downtown also offers a fabulous Broadway Farmers Market every Thursday. It starts in May and stays open through October.
You can also find great drink and happy hour fare at Stanley and Seaforts - they’ve got Prime rib, oysters Rockefeller & other American classics, plus valet parking & harbor & city views. They also have weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday until 3pm and are participants of Restaurant Week.
Safeway and Marlene’s Market and Deli are within minutes of this home for groceries or organic foods.
The Tacoma Link light rail is currently a 1.6-mile light rail line starting at the Tacoma Dome Station and ending at the Theater District on South 9th Street – and is free to ride! The city is currently working on an expansion plan with construction finalizing in 2022. This project will more than double the current length and will reach new destinations like the Old City Hall, the Stadium District, Wright Park and the Hilltop communities. Check here for link updates! Are you planning to attend a Sounders or Seahawks game in the future? Catch the Sounder Train at the Tacoma Dome Station northbound to Seattle – it’s convenient, cheap (about $5 to ride) and less of a hassle than sitting in I-5 traffic for events or commuting! Both the light rail and train are just a mile away!
