Super Deli Mart was unlike anything we’d ever seen. At the corner of 35th Avenue SW and SW Barton Street in West Seattle, this former Hoagie’s Corner sandwich shop is one part bottleshop, one part beer bar, and one part convenience store. Back in 2012, The Atlantic magazine called it a “post-modern Elks club” because they didn’t know how else to describe it. At first, when it appeared on the Seattle beer scene, it was a bit hard for people to wrap their brains around, but now it’s old news. Super Deli Mart was the first of a new kind of beer retailer, one that is no longer so uncommon.
On Sunday, July 1st Super Deli Mart celebrates its 5th Anniversary as it hosts the annual Customer Appreciation Party. Korean BBQ, live music, killer beer, and more. To the best of my recollection, Super Deli Mart has been around since 2009 or 2010, but it’s their party, so 5th Anniversary it is. Here’s what they said on their Facebook page about the event.
“If you didn’t know, it’s BBQ season and our Annual Customer Appreciation Party is this coming Sunday, July 1st from Noon-5pm! It also happens to be our 5th Year Anniversary already so come join us and celebrate with live music, prizes and real authentic Korean cuisine!”
“There will also be a beer garden of course with Georgetown Brewing’s beer on tap including our collaboration, Super Deli IPA! We are partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital this year so any donations you make will gladly be accepted and proceeds from our event will be used to benefit children in our local Seattle community! Thank you everyone for supporting us with your business each and every day and we hope to see all of you this Sunday!”
