NW 65th Street
The NW 65th corridor, just down the hill from Phinney Ridge, once provided diversions for off-duty sailors (hence its archaic name Stumbletown). The area has grown into an eclectic strip of shops, bars and eateries. The mystery building at the corner of NW 65th and 7th Ave has been a private residence for the last 20 years, but began as hardware store, a pharmacy, and other retail incarnations. The building required extensive renovation to create the open yet intimate space now called home by Joli.
The mountain triptych was created just for Joli by Seattle artist Carl Thomas Edwards. Vintage pieces, including the antique oil painting with the swans (our mascot), are from the collection of Janet Eicher. Pale pink abstract lighting was designed by Seattle sculptor I.L.
Among the reclaimed elements of our decor are a pair of antique fireplace pilasters, and actual church pews – cut in half and repurposed for booths. The original concrete floor has been retained, and ceiling beams exposed. Dramatic curtains in the front window are from an old movie theater.
