The Shakedown is Bellingham’s newest music venue and it’s worth a visit! Located at 1212 N. State Street, the bar now inhabits the space which was previously home to The Factory, Callaloo and Plan B. Inside, you’ll find a staff of Belebrities (Bellingham Celebrities for those who don’t know!) like co-owner Hollie Huthman (local musician and band photographer), Michelle Schutte (of Jinx Art Space fame) and Krissa Woiwod (iDiOM Theater founder) and a menu that intriguingly mixes pub food (good ole’ french fries) and upscale dishes (Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches) that uses as much local product as possible.
They also make a point of pouring local beers…especially Boundary Bay Brewery Scotch Ale. Check out our latest Local Connections video and find out more about The Shakedown. Cheers!
