The dining and entertainment brand will open its first Pacific Northwest location at Vulcan Real Estate’s 555 Tower
BELLEVUE, Wash. – Oct. 18, 2023 – Pinstripes, a combination of made-from-scratch dining and face-to-face gaming, announced today that it is expanding to Bellevue, Washington. Expected to open in mid-2024, the new Pinstripes will be located in the freestanding retail pavilion that is part of Vulcan Real Estate’s 555 Tower – making this the company’s first location in Washington state.
The retail pavilion at 555 Tower sits along the edge of the Grand Connection and across the street from Bellevue Transit Center, offering excellent access and visibility to residents, employees, and visitors to Bellevue’s downtown core.
Pinstripes will occupy the entire retail pavilion, comprised of two levels and totaling 21,000 square feet. Upon full build-out, the space will be fully equipped with bowling lanes, bocce courts, and plenty of outdoor seating options. As for cuisine, Pinstripes offers quintessential Italian-American food – from wood-fired pizzas to seasonal gelato – as well as a thoughtfully selected wine list, rotating craft beers, and an array of handcrafted cocktails.
“Vulcan Real Estate has constructed an extraordinary iconic jewel box that is designed perfectly for the Pinstripes concept,” said Dale Schwartz, Founder and CEO of Pinstripes. “Our goal is to create a welcoming venue for the community while also providing a tailored destination for corporate events.”
Upon opening, Pinstripes intends to host a high volume of private corporate and social events – targeting 1,000 events within its first year of operation – making it a true social hub for the greater community. With design currently underway, Pinstripes also plans to commission local artists to help liven up the space and make it a vibrant place for the community to gather.
“The two-story retail pavilion at 555 Tower has been highly anticipated by the Downtown Bellevue community, and we’re extremely excited to be partnering with Pinstripes to bring this space to its full potential,” said Rob Arron, senior director, marketing and leasing for Vulcan Real Estate. “From the carefully curated menu, to the excitement of bowling and bocce, this will be a truly unique entertainment experience where friends, family, and colleagues can gather.”
Following Pinstripes’s Pacific Northwest debut at 555 Tower, the company intends to establish additional Washington locations in the years to come.
