Henry’s Tavern to open in Bellevue’s Lincoln Square South

Nestled inside Lincoln Square at 500 Bellevue Way NE, Ste. 310, Henry’s Tavern will open its 100 beer taps, signature Mac and Cheese Burger, hand-seasoned Gorgonzola waffle fries and more to the Bellevue community on Aug. 30.

But this location is different from its Seattle counterpart.

This menu will feature health-conscious food items, such as protein bowls and wellness inspired salads.

With an extensive selection of local, regional and international beers, and hard ciders on tap and in bottles, Henry’s Tavern offers beer aficionados exciting options. From pilsners, blondes, white ales and wheats to brown ales, lagers, stouts and porters, the frequently rotating taps showcase varied beer styles from seasonal releases and European specialties to fruit ales.

The bar features a custom frost rail to keep pints cold, an outdoor patio looking over Downtown Bellevue’s urban streetscape, games such as shuffleboard, and state-of-the-art TVs to watch the game.

The Bellevue tavern is 11,468 square feet and holds 283 seats with a 708 square foot patio with 48 seats.

Approximately 150 new jobs will be available after local positions are filled.

The general contractor for the space was Wilcox Construction Build with architecture and design by Graphite Design Group. Kemper Development Company is the property manager.
