As highly anticipated Revelry prepares to open at 210 SE MLK, the final details are falling into place, and Eater photographer Dina Avila delivers a sneak peek inside. As you can see from the photos above, the late-night Korean restaurant and bar is a neat package of hardwood floors, raw metal, and vintage boomboxes all wrapped up in throwback graffiti featuring gonzo-style blackbirds á la Ralph Steadman and a massive "Revelry Jams" mixtape.
Perhaps most interesting is how Revelry and the Evo outdoor store have divided the shared space. The two are connected (and separated) by a doorway, so the sounds of revelers crunching through Rachel Yang's Spicy Fried Chicken with Crack Sauce won't disturb customers shopping for snowboards. And after a few miso-maple old fashioneds, maybe you'll finally take the plunge and invest in that state-of-the-art mountain bike or backpack.
Revelry seats 48, with most of the seating at the front of the space and a couple tables tucked into an alcove in the rear. The bar appears to have seating on both sides, making it a centerpiece—the DJ booth tucked in behind it. While Seattle powerhouse chefs Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi bring the Korean small plates, co-owners Eric and Karen Bowler bring experience running Old Town/Chinatown's popular Fortune and Tube clubs.
Revelry is working to finalize its dishes and cocktails right up to the opening. Food and drink menus are still under wraps but should drop in the next 24 hours.
