Henry’s Tavern Expands to South Lake Union and Bellevue
Two new locations offer custom menus boasting abundant beers on tap and urban tavern fare featuring ‘food for all moods’ and amenities designed to cater to distinctive neighborhoods
Seattle – May 1, 2017 – Henry’s Tavern, an upscale tavern-inspired bar and restaurant, today announced it will open two dining destinations in South Lake Union and Bellevue in late summer. Henry’s Tavern, owned and operated by Restaurants Unlimited, Inc., first opened in Seattle in 2013 with its SoDo location that quickly developed as a local favorite for an upscale tavern experience or as a game day destination.
Henry’s Tavern in South Lake Union will be located in the base of an Amazon occupied office tower at Fairview Avenue N. & Republican St. This spot will operate as a compressed footprint with 50 beers on tap and an amazing menu ranging from artisan sandwiches and signature burgers to wok-inspired dishes. Patrons can also look forward to pub games, grab-and-go lunch, and innovative beer technologies such as Digital Pour and custom crowlers. The grab-and-go lunch options and intimate space balance the needs of the bustling tech workforce in South Lake Union and neighborhood residents seeking to linger.
On the Eastside, Henry’s Tavern is arriving as part of the new Lincoln Square expansion, which will boast a custom frost drink rail to keep pints cold and a second-floor outdoor patio with unparalleled views of downtown Bellevue and the urban streetscape. While preserving fan favorites such as 100 taps, the signature Mac and Cheese Burger and hand-seasoned Gorgonzola waffle fries, the Bellevue menu will star health-conscious food items such as protein bowls and wellness-inspired salads.
“Seattle’s South Lake Union and Bellevue’s downtown areas are fast growing and vibrant communities,” said Jim Eschweiler, President and CEO of Restaurants Unlimited, Inc. “We thoughtfully reflected on how to adapt Henry’s Tavern for each locality such as the South Lake Union patio and Bellevue’s menu. For both destinations, the local beer and cider selection, scratch kitchen gastropub menu and elevated tavern atmosphere will make fantastic additions to the neighborhoods.”
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. Henry’s Tavern encompasses food for all moods with generously sized specialty dishes. The varied, yet distinct menu offers guests choices such as all-natural, hand-pressed beef burgers; artisanal sandwiches; locally-made sausages; house-made thin crust pizzas; wok-inspired dishes; street tacos and staples like salads and tavern grilled steaks.
