West Seattle beverages: Admiral Bird to share Flower Lab space

A new partnership is taking wing in Admiral – the front half of Flower Lab on the southeast corner of California/Admiral is becoming the Admiral Bird, a partnership between Heidi from Bird on a Wire Espresso and Corina from Circa Alehouse, as just announced:

Admiral Bird is offering Ravens Brew Coffee, local and sustainable pastries, 3 beers on tap, cider, growlers, specialty bottled beers and wine to go. It’s a joyful community space with a nautical feel, wi-fi and bright window seating. There will be homemade daily soups, grilled sandwiches and many grab and go options like breakfast salads in mason jars. Need coffee for an event? We have airpots you can rent-complete with cream, cups and sugar. Adding pastries is also an option.

If you are waiting for a table at Circa Alehouse you no longer have to squeeze in by the front door, you can get your name on the list then have a seat at the Admiral Bird and wait until your name is called…or grab a cappuccino on your way to Weekend Brunch! Need a space to host a tea party, surprise party or baby shower? OUR SPACE IS FOR RENT! We will work with you to create a fun and memorable event (including flowers from Flower Lab!). Have a film or slides you want to show? We also offer a movie screen/slide projector!

Something you want to see that we don’t offer? We are flexible gals who would love to hear what you have to say. We are opening in early December and can’t wait to see all the familiar faces of the Admiral District and those venturing up from the “South West,” and tomeet our new neighbors.

Heidi tells us that Bird on a Wire Espresso at 35th/Henderson will remain open; this is an expansion. And Flower Lab is remaining open as a flower shop, too.

    Good idea for having a spillover area while waiting for a table at Circa – best of luck to them.

    Ha! well done @Jason.
    I love this! It’s just up the street from my house, and sounds like I’ll be headed up there a lot. SO many great offerings. Salad in a Mason jar, you kiddin’ me?! When does this go into effect??

    So pleased to read of a new coffee-shop/bakery/cafe place in the Admiral area! We’ve been feeling left out compared to our big sibling down in the California Junction. Also since my favorite place Coffee to a Tea/Sugar Rush bakery closed. This is great news!

  • onceachef November 13, 2013 (5:55 pm)

    Congrats (again) Heidi! One question…what are the”sustainable pastries” mentioned in the article? Never heard of a pastry referred to as “sustainable”. :)

  • Petunia November 13, 2013 (6:54 pm)

    Sounds awesome..win all round! Yay!

  • Last53BusRider November 13, 2013 (7:12 pm)

  • spicyfunk November 13, 2013 (10:41 pm)

    Yay! Welcome back to Admiral Heidi! What a great partnership with Corina. Good luck and I look forward to the opening!!

    Onceachef –
    I laughed at your comment about “sustainable pastries.” I was thinking the same thing. Hmmm…sustains you till lunchtime? Lasts 10 years if kept in fridge? Seriously, we know it’s one of those foodie buzzwords, but something we all value. Probably akin to “local,” “organic,” etc. And I look forward to trying the pastries and the Ravens Brew coffee – I love Bird on a Wire, too.

  • Gretchen November 14, 2013 (6:35 am)

    Sooooo excited for you girls and to try all of your delicious ideas! What a great space and a great endeavor. Best of luck to you. Can’t wait to get in those doors!

  • excitedadmiralian November 15, 2013 (5:18 pm)

    So excited for this! We love Circa and we have been hoping for a place like this in that area. One suggestion to make the seating cozy and inviting!

  • Gadfly December 4, 2013 (4:42 am)

    Has this happened yet? We’ve been craning our necks when going by the Flower Lab in hopes.

Sorry, comment time is over.
