Bastille Café & Bar is excited to announce the 2017 dates for their popular rooftop dinners.

There will be twenty-four Monday and Tuesday evening dinners between June and September, each starting with a rooftop garden tour and featuring a multi-course, family-style meal with wine pairings.

Guests can arrive at 5:45pm for a rooftop tour beginning in the bar with a Rooftop Garden inspired cocktail to sip while exploring the garden. Guests are seated for dinner under a cabana overlooking the ship canal at 6:30pm.

The family-style meals will highlight rooftop produce and local ingredients grown by select purveyors from the Ballard Farmer’s Market. Chef Jason Stoneburner will create the menu each week based on what has been recently harvested. Sommeliers Kristen Young and Alexandra Stang will select wines each week to complement the menu and will be on hand to present their pairings for each course.

Tickets can be purchased starting Tuesday, April 18th at 12 p.m. at http://bastillerooftop2017.brownpapertickets.com
