Blake's Place BellevueA new dining and music venue will add some jazz to downtown Bellevue’s nightlife scene.

Bake’s Place, a jazz supper club owned by Craig and Laura Baker, plans to move from Issaquah to downtown Bellevue in winter.

The club will present a dinner show with jazz and other genres of music 6 nights each week, as well as a pre-show “Sound Check” and an “After Hours” set.

Bake’s Place will open in Pacific Plaza, located at 108th Avenue NE and NE 2nd Street, across from Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar, according to the Bellevue Downtown Association newsletter.

  1. This is great news! I loved that place in Issaquah, but it’s going to be even better in Bellevue. Thanks for the update Michael.

  2. I am thrilled! I’ve been to Bake’s Place in Issaquah and bringing this quality of live music to DTB is needed. Thank you Craig Baker.

  3. Could have used a better location though.

    I have to Bing map for where Pacific Plaza is…

  4. Terrible location but should be a good addition to the growing number of nightlife options

  5. Awesome! There used to be a place on 10th street called Ascada Bistro that played live jazz once a week. 0/8 seafood’s jazz night was okay too but the venue just didn’t feel right. Anyway, loved it and look forward to the return of this entertainment.

  6. Although the location seems obscure now, I think it will help to finally shed light on other parts of downtown (you know, besdies the malls).

  7. I think the location is great! Won’t have to deal with the main stream traffic over by Bellevue Way. I can’t wait to check it out!

  8. This is great news. Loved Bake’s when it was in the original Redmond location. Bellevue will be great.

  9. Yeah, agree – places like this don’t need “great” locations. If it’s good as I hope it will be, people will seek it out and they’ll do great. Request: play modern jazz (50’s, 60’s Coltrane, Monk, Miles, etc) and have a great bar and allow non- dinner bar crowd to come in and enjoy great jazz. That will be mutant.

  10. Just look at Jazz Alley as an example – bottom floor of an office building and compare if to Triple Door. The management and the acts they book will be the deciding factor. Gladly go to Seastar and Main Street Bellevue and Bake’s Place.

  11. Yessss….Bellevue needs music!! Looking so forward to Listening to Great Jazz here soon.
