In 2019, Civility and Unrest was named Best Bar by Bellevue Lifestyle Magazine. The dynamic was amazing, and then tragedy struck the whole world. We closed our doors in March 2020 following nationwide mandates. We briefly reopened in 2020 but the COVID requirements were too high. We closed fearing it would be permanent. With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, we managed to reopen in 2021. In May 2022 I was awarded Best Bartender by 425 Magazine and it seems our momentum is picking up again.

That being said, I’m really looking forward to growing into my new position, and I’m hardly able to expect to see what this next chapter has to offer. Smooth Operator: Mixing up the perfect martini
