Seattle Food Designer: Linda Derschang
IxD19 Team Favorite
When OG Seattle scenester Linda Derschang decided in the early '90's to expand beyond her Basic clothing line, she decided to call her first eating and drinking establishment, well, "Linda's." Featuring local craft brews, comfort food, and backwoods vintage northwest kitschy decor, Linda's quickly became THE preferred habitat for the grungerati. She added a cool enclosed and partially covered patio, and it's become a Seattle intitutionj, serving both late night drinks & hangover-curing brunch.
Not content with ruling the comfort bar scene, Linda Derschang brought her flawless theme-driven aesthetic, this time bedecked in tawdry-chic red retro Asian accents to Seattle's already saturated club scene. Linda has since sold her interest in Chop Suey, but it's still going strong, featuring nightly features a diverse lineup of anything from hip-hop to alt-rock and legendary DH sets.
