Owner Tim Short purchased the bar from Oddfellow's Grill and officially opened for business on Saturday. Short, who is originally from Issaquah, has previously owned restaurants in Arizona and recently moved back to the Seattle area.
Short said he and his business partner, Ander Larson, aim for Redmond's Bar and Grill to offer an atmosphere and food menu that is a step above what is found at the typical sports bar.
“We’re trying to kind of hit a niche in the Redmond area that isn’t really addressed,” Short said.
The menu, attached to this story, features burgers ($11-$14), sandwiches ($11-$13) and higher-end entrees like top sirloin steak ($24) and grilled salmon ($22). The establishment's head chef is Chris Nelson, who previously worked at Hector's in Kirkland and Beach Café, also located in Kirkland.
Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m. seven days a week and features discounted drinks and appetizers. Short said the bar's hours are currently 3 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Wednesday and 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
Starting this weekend, Short said the bar will open at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday to screen NFL and NCAA football games.
