There’s a new gay bar on Capitol Hill—which for the gays is big news, since this city’s worthwhile homo watering holes can be counted on one hand. I ended up there twice this weekend, and it was totally packed both times. It’s not yet clear whether Purr, on 11th between Pike and Pine, will be a boy bar or a lesbian bar, which is kind of exciting. (Currently the boys seem to be occupying more territory.) And while the interior is only OK, here is what Purr definitively has over its competitors: the best unobstructed sight-lines in the city.
Also, its drink glasses are nicely weighted.
