Welcome to Bake’s Place Bellevue. We’re so glad you’re here!
Progress in our beautiful new venue is moving along at what is sometimes a dizzying clip. Our amazing contractors are hard at work building out the space, which is steadily transforming on a daily basis. Amidst the clamor and the dust, we’re keeping busy booking bands, lining up with our vendors, putting the finishing touches on this new website, organizing our staff and knocking back millions of necessary tasks–small and large–to make ready for our Grand Opening in May. We’ll be kicking things off with a stellar line-up of outstanding musicians and tickets will go on sale soon. Although our space and website are still under construction, we invite you to join us in the process. We will be posting regular updates here on our blog. You can look at pictures and read about how things are going. We look forward to seeing you at Bake’s Place Bellevue!
We discovered this space in the Columbia West building last fall. The first order of business was to obtain all the proper permitting to move forward with our build out. This was a lengthy and challenging process but ultimately a successful one. Once we were square with the City of Bellevue, the demolition began. Our hearty crew didn’t waste a second and the job was done in just two days. This was early February. Over the past several weeks, things have progressed at a steady pace. Some of our biggest benchmarks have included erecting the mezzanine and hanging the very large lighting truss. (As you can see from the photos, it took three lifts to do it!) The following photos will give you an idea as to how far we’ve come. We hope you enjoy them and that you will check back for weekly progress reports and more photos!
