Witness Bar

Where the Spirits Nourish the Soul

Witness is a Southern-influenced craft cocktail bar that places emphasis on warm hospitality and premium-quality beverages. The food menu features Southern-inspired dishes that lean more toward “soul food” than “New Southern Cuisine.” Witness delivers charm, easy elegance, and down-home warmth.

[02/13/17]   Hello Flock!

Valentine's Day? Am I right?!?!? I know you all struggle on V-day. What to do? Give in to the Hallmark Holiday? Stay at home and watch Netflix? Cruise Tinder again?

We have the solution! Whether you are coupled up or on the prowl (or both!), come on in to Witness. We are going to have food and drink specials, a no pressure environment, and the right amount of fun and flirty vibe for every damn occasion.

Come get some!

Hello, Congregation! This is Mikel. Why is Mikel posing with a rubber chicken? Because he ordered our 30,000th Chicken and Waffle since we opened Witness. So, he received a $300 gift card and more importantly, a rubber chicken.

Every 10,000th Chicken and Waffle we raise the gift card $100 - don't you think it should be you next time?

Once again, thank you Mikel, and everyone who comes to Witness and allows us to do what we love. Birds of feather stick together, right?

[02/05/17]   Hi Flock!

You know what is better than Super Bowl Sunday? (and yes, we are showing the game) - Second Sunday Supper!

We are back to doing Second Sunday Supper, every other month. So next Sunday, our main man Han is going to do a supper that showcases the versatility of rice. Think Umami for your tummy!
Also, the lovely and talented Felicia will be making the drink pairings this go round.

You know the drill, right? Dinner starts at 6:00 pm, 10 seats available. First come, first served. Prix fixe dinner with 5 courses. $40 for the food, $20 for the drinks. The fun and hospitality is always free!

Send me a message and let me know you want to come. Space fills up fast!


[01/29/17]   Hello Flock,

Witness is closing tonight for our annual holiday party. Yes, restaurants do holiday parties in January. Please forgive our closure so I can treat my wonderful staff to some dinner and shenanigans.

See you tomorrow, with hopefully good stories to tell.


[12/24/16]   Hello My Congregation!

Happy Holidays from the Witness crew. As per our tradition, The Holcomb Family will be serving simple drinks and cassoulet tomorrow on Christmas Eve from 5 until 9pm. Alison, Dashiell, and I look forward to seeing you and serving you! We always give the staff the night of Christmas Eve off, and of course, Christmas Day.

We will be open for brunch tomorrow and through the Seahawks game if you want to come on by!

Thank you for supporting Witness. We wish you an amazing season.

Gregg and the staff of Witness

[11/24/16]   Happy Thanksgiving, Congregation!

I hope everyone has a beautiful day with their family and friends. I am extremely thankful to be able to own a restaurant / bar that gets to be a part of this amazing community and neighborhood.

Witness will be closed tonight, as we always do on Thanksgiving, to allow our staff to celebrate the holiday and come back strong and renewed to take you through the rest of the holiday season.

With love,
Gregg and the rest of the staff at Witness

[11/06/16]   Okay, my people. So much going on the next few days. The tv's will be on the next 3 evenings. Tonight, we are showing the Sounders playoff game. Tomorrow, we are showing the Seahawks. Tuesday, we are watching the first female President get elected.

We are going to have food and drink specials all 3 nights. Come in! Because if things go badly, I may be in Canada on Wednesday . . .

Cheers! Go Sounders! Go Hawks! Go Hillary!!!

What you missed last night at Witness if you weren't there. Dead and Famous - Elvis, Gypsy Rose Lee, Left Eye, Amy Winehouse and Mr. Rogers - Zombie Versions.
