Eastside residents have watched in amazement as downtown Bellevue has developed from sleepy suburb to bustling urban center, complete with world-class shopping and its own active nightlife. With hip hangouts like The Parlor Collection and Munchbar, downtown is the place to be for a night out on the town. This January we’ll welcome the newest addition to Bellevue’s nightlife scene, Blue Martini.
Originally based out of West Palm Beach Florida, Blue Martini’s popularity among young professionals has allowed it to expand to both Las Vegas and Phoenix, in addition to eight Florida locations. So it is no surprise that due to Bellevue’s ideal demographics and rapid growth, general manager Dominic Lebaron was excited for Bellevue to become Blue Martini’s newest home. With its growing recognition and mass appeal, this chain has no intention of slowing down. Next year Blue Martini plans on going international with locations in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as one in Dallas.
Blue Martini is scheduled to open for business as early as mid to late January on the third floor of The Bravern. It will be open seven days a week from 4 p.m.-2 a.m. on weekdays and from1 p.m.-2 a.m. on weekends, making this chic new hangout the perfect spot to relax with colleagues after a long day at the office or party it up with friends on the weekend.
In addition to a bar that boasts 42 different martinis, Blue Martini will also feature DJs, live music as well as a VIP bar and two private VIP rooms. So make a New Year’s resolution to see the restaurant/bar cities around the country are raving about with a visit to Blue Martini.
