Barcode Bar Downtown Bellevue

Bar Code, a craft cocktail lounge, plans to open in downtown Bellevue’s Ten20 Tower Luxury Apartment building in mid-October.

Bar Code will be managed by Evan Martin, who started bartending in 2009 and most recently worked at Tavern Law’s Needle and Thread in Seattle and Naga Cocktail Lounge at Chantanee Thai Restaurant in Bellevue.

Martin has created a contemporary cocktail list and will spotlight a signature cocktail each month. Drinks are made with the finest spirits, freshly pressed juices, and house-made bitters, according to a press statement. The establishment will also offer local wines, tap beer, and a menu of flat breads, sandwiches, appetizers, and salads.

Bar Code, located at 1020 108th St., Suite 100, will be open from 4 p.m. to closing on Tuesday through Saturday. Later this fall, guests will be able to enjoy live music during the weekends. Bar Code takes over space, which was previously occupied by  1 Hundred Bistro.


  1. That just seems to be a terrible location for a bar. Grand Cru and 100 Bistro failed miserably and I don’t think this place will fare any better. No foot traffic and too far from other venues. Hopefully they can prove me wrong.

  2. Agreed. Obviously the surrounding given population of Ten20 and Ashton aren’t enough to support a bar. And Mike is correct – Ten20 is just too far away from other centers of activity such as the Bravern (aka Microsoft employees), or The Bellevue Collection (Microsoft, Eddie Bauer, the Bellevue Square shoppers, and their surrounding residents). Best of luck though.

  3. We went there last Friday night @ 9pm and the place was only half full. We tried many items on the menu and were impressed. Cocktails and wines were descent as well. I hope they will survive…3rd time (owner) is the charm.
