This New Bar at the Seattle Airport Only Serves Shots

Drinking in the airport has always been about posting up at a bar and classily sipping a cocktail, pretending to be George Clooney from Up in the Air, but because air travel has changed an awful lot in the past year, these days, it’s apparently all about throwing shots. A restaurant at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has just opened a walk-up bar that sells only shots.

Shot Bar is a pop-up experience at the Rel’Lish Burger Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma’s B concourse, serving only liquor in mini red Solo cups. The menu includes Fireball, Hornitos, Crystalino tequila, Ketel One cucumber- and mint-flavored vodka, Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, and Brown Sugar Bourbon. Shots will cost $7 each — with a double costing $10 — and will be served underneath a plexiglass barrier.

Kathy Casey, who created the concept, said in a statement, “Limited seats are available for passengers to have a cocktail at the airport due to physical distancing protocols, but the interest from travelers for adult libations remains high. SHOT BAR addresses that in a fun and pioneering way. Plus, there’s nothing more fun than a quick shot to kick off vacation.”

The airport only resumed serving alcohol on February 1 due to COVID-19 precautions.
