Brady spotted this little tidbit on EveryBlock: WINE WORLD WAREHOUSE applied for new liquor license. We made a call, but before we could get the info, we were scooped by The Puget Sound Business Journal, which reported that the former Office Max space on 45th will soon be converted into what could be the largest wine store in the Northwest, slated to open this fall. According to the Journal:
The 23,000-square-foot Wine World, in the Wallingford area, will include a pair of 30-foot counters for wine tastings, an espresso bar and a 6,000-square-foot meeting room for hosting private and corporate events that includes a demonstration kitchen.
David LeClaire, the sommelier behind the Seattle Uncorked wine club and other wine-related events, plans to carry 4,000 items, including Northwest and international wines, wine accessories and glasses, chocolates, charcuterie and cheeses.
