Occupying one of the spaces nearer to the street in the Bottleworks, Seabear, the new oyster bar project (early details were here) from Patrick Stubbers, Peter Dale and barman Chris Luken, and which is, we have to assume, not named after the critter from Spongebob Squarepants, starts serving at 3 p.m. today.
Oyster happy hour runs from 3–6 p.m., and the bar is open until midnight, shucking oysters and serving up a frozen negroni out of a drink machine. There will be vegetables and some non-seafood items should you have been dragged to Seabear by someone who does not understand your proclivities, but really it's all about the bivalves.
The Facebook page is up and running, but the website is lagging behind for now. No reservations.
