Conveniently located on a corner lot, across the street from the downtown Bellevue park, 99 Park is a new, exciting, and innovative addition to the restaurant scene, It offers a cozy, yet fashionable, dining experience. We chose 99 Park for happy hour because of their location as well as the local, seasonal and innovative menu items. Besides, the food looked great!
99 Park offers happy hour every Tuesday through Saturday, 4 to 6 p.m., and Sunday/Monday, 4 p.m. to close, served in the bar. We were apprehensive about coming here at first because the prices are a bit on the expensive side and they don’t have a designated Happy Hour menu.
Happy hours are intended to draw in customers and offer menu items at discounted prices. The menu at 99 Park limits you to the small plates, which range in price from $13 to $16, which is a bit pricey compared to other places.
Even though it was on the expensive side, we ended up having a wonderful time at 99 Park. Their speciality cocktail menu is fun and offers a lot to choose from, with an average price from $12 to $22. There was also a variety of NW wines and beers.
99 Park is trendy with a rustic sort of feel. It is really a one-of-a-kind spot in downtown Bellevue. Unfortunately, when we got our bill, the 25% happy hour discount was not included. Even though we ordered during happy hour time (between 4 and 6 p.m.), we left after it had ended (around 7 p.m.). Therefore, we were not given the discount. We are not sure if this was an oversight or a general rule.
All things considered, 99 Park was better than expected. Our food was great, the atmosphere was lovely, and the servers were very helpful and friendly!
