Originating in Vancouver, BC, Joey is a restaurant chain that has spread across Canada and the United States. In Bellevue, Joey is located in the Hyatt Hotel, boasting a spectacular view and a trendy, upscale atmosphere.
When you walk into Joey, there is an array of sleek tables and booths. Most of the restaurant goers were well-dressed in business casual clothing, contributing to the classy vibe of the restaurant.
Happy Hour is everyday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday through Thursday from 9 p.m. to close. The Happy Hour Menu is small but fulfilling. The drink options are gin and tonic, sangria, pale ale, and beer for $4, and red wine or chardonnay for $5. For food, there are three options: tuna taco, sushi cone, sliders royale for $3.5.
The tuna taco is tiny and adorable but absolutely delicious. The sushi cones are absolutely unique and delicious. Even though the portions are small, they are filling, so we didn’t have enough room for the sliders royale!
Our server was friendly and attentive, making it an overall great experience at Joey!
Purple is a classy cafe and wine bar with locations in Bellevue, Kirkland, Seattle, and Woodinville. We must admit, we did not know much about Purple prior to our visit. We had driven by their Downtown Bellevue location so many times that we decided it was finally time to check it out for ourselves.
Purple is located at the Bellevue Towers on the corner of NE 4th Street and 106th Ave.
They offer a daily Happy Hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m during weekdays and their menu includes a variety of American food as well as wine, beer, and cocktails.
We went to Purple on Sunday night, but didn’t realize that Happy Hour is not offered on the weekends. Even though we had food and drinks at their regular price, it still turned out to be a great evening with delicious food and drinks with a trendy, modern atmosphere. Purple offers an eclectic Northwest food menu and a wonderful wine list. The seating is comfortable and inviting and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. They have a selection of food which includes calamari, salads, burgers, fish and chips, and ahi. It’s a great place to try different wines to find out which wines pair with different kinds of food.
If you are a native of Seattle, it’s very likely that you have frequented or heard of 13 Coins. Everyone who has been there can probably recount a special memory or perhaps has even memorized their favorite menu item.
13 Coins is a Seattle institution in the restaurant scene that has been around since 1967. Best known for their traditional cuisine, upscale bar and dimly lit, classy atmosphere, 13 Coins has roomy interior with high-back leather booths, which offers some privacy while you eat.
The full bar, with seats that overlook the kitchen, has a 24 hour menu. They frequently have live music performances on the weekends.
There is a story behind 13 Coins’ unique name originating in Peru, one of love, care, and concern. Once, a young man wished to marry a wealthy man’s daughter. When the father of the daughter asked the young man what he had to offer for his daughter’s hand in marriage, the young man reached into his pocket and handed the father the only change he had: 13 Coins.
Eastsiders were thrilled with the opening of 13 Coins in Downtown Bellevue at the Hyatt Regency. Happy hours are 7 days a week, 4:00 to 6:00 pm & 10:00 pm to last call, and Sunday from 4:00 p.m. to last call.
We had a great experience at 13 Coins the other night (as we always do!) and are thrilled to share it with you!
