It has been hard to read anything related to Bellevue lately without hearing about The Bravern’s grand opening.  The date when all the stores will open together is quickly approaching, on Friday, September 11th.

The day prior, Thursday, September 10th, Neiman Marcus will host a black tie Grand Opening Gala celebration to benefit local Bellevue beneficiaries: Hopelink, Overlake Hospital Medical Center, and PONCHO. This pre-opening event held in their new store is open to the public, but comes with the somewhat hefty price tag of $200 per person (buy tickets here). The event begins at 7:30pm and includes cocktail and buffets.

It’s not often that an ultra luxury complex such as The Bravern has a grand opening, so value this opportunity to attend the Gala or be involved in the opening weekend festivities.



  1. I thought Neiman Marcus was having a soft opening Friday the 11th, and the Bravern shops will open beginning the 12th?

  2. Jojo – You are correct. Neiman Marcus’ soft opening is the 11th and the shops and restaurants will open on the 12th. We hope to see you there.
