A substantial, vibrant bar captivates your arrival, inviting you into a bustling restaurant serving northwest favorites and small plates inspired by regional offerings.
Central Bar + Restaurant or “Central” as regulars call us, is a large, open restaurant designed to entertain. Central is uniquely Bellevue, a dressy yet casual place to be seen and celebrate the most important occasions of our lives. The 4,000 square foot space is a social hive, there is always something happening at Central whether it’s morning, noon, or night.
Located in the center of the Bellevue Collection, Central embraces the European inspired, landscaped alleyway with large Nana windows that open up to the outdoors. At the epicenter of twinkle lit BAM Alley is home to Swipe, an iconic 8 foot tall cat sculpture created by artist, George Rodrigues.
The W Hotel (south) and Westin Hotel (north) bookend Central while residents living in Two Lincoln Tower reside in the luxury units on floors 15 through 40 directly above. Central is truly at the center of it all.
Bellevue restaurateurs, Joseph, Randi and Cody Brazen, ensure Central’s upscale atmosphere is comfortable, welcoming and fun by hiring the most talented, engaging, and positive bartenders, servers and cooks to join their team. This is the same recipe the Brazen’s have used for the past 14 years at 520 Bar and Grill, their family’s first restaurant and a landmark in Old Bellevue.
Central’s warm environment, beautiful lighting, custom furnishings and open aesthetics allow guests to always feel like they are part of the celebration. Topped with a large, catering kitchen and Perlick bar, Central is proud to have been awarded “2018’s Best New Restaurant” by 425.
The “C Team” is here to serve you. Whether it’s a first date, family dinner, business lunch, 20 person happy hour or 250+ person buyout, whatever your celebration is we are here to make it special and promise to deliver on all expectations. We look forward to serving you soon!
