Manette Sidebar Closes, Henry’s Deli Moving

The space next to The Manette (formerly the Manette Saloon) is going from martinis to meats.

The Bremerton Patriot reported (yeah, I got scooped, but in my defense, I’ve been working on the Sun’s site) Thursday that Henry’s Deli will be moving into the spot occupied by the Side Bar.

The Side Bar opened in 2007 and drew a fair crowd on the weekends when it opened, but honestly, I hadn’t been there in awhile, and maybe I wasn’t the only one. The owners told the Patriot that the recession has hit the bar, and  they were also looking for someone to run their food operations, so the partnership between longtime friends proved enticing.
