The Spot off Main Closed Bellevue PhotoThe Spot Off Main Bar on Main Street in Bellevue has closed. The restaurant’s location will soon become a construction zone. The NW corner of Bellevue Way NE and Main Street will eventually play host to The Main Street Gateway project. The Spot Off Main opened in October of 2007, and has been a favorite bar on Main Street ever since.

Other businesses still open that will soon close include 7-Eleven, Cupcake Royale, and Rudy’s Barbershop.

The Main Street Gateway project, a 369-unit apartment complex is scheduled to be completed in May 2016. The property is also planned to include 23,475 square feet of retail space and 625 underground parking stalls.


  1. Cupcake Royale relocating elsewhere?

  2. I wonder why they didn’t get their lease extended like the rest of the tenants did. Rudy’s, 7-11, Araya, and the remaining tenants had their leases extended through April.

  3. @Mitchell – It was Stu Vander Hoek’s decision as he was the owner of the bar. It was a great place and something that downtown Bellevue needed. It will be missed by many….

    I am really sorry that The Spot of Main closed. It was one of my favorite places every time I visited Seattle area. It’s a pity that places like this go away. Alas it’s the same all over the world …
