Our Gorgeous Subterranean Event Space Is Now Booking Holiday Parties

In the heart of vibrant Pioneer Square, The Knife Room at Nordo is a beautiful event space, now available for private parties. Located on Seattle’s original street level, this 4000 square foot facility, at 1st and Main, offers amazing location and exemplary character. Brick supports, facades and archways and early post-Industrial hardware connect our guests to historic Seattle tradition, while the close proximity of the stadiums, shops, cafes, and night-life of downtown is unparalleled in our modern city.  


A neo-minimalist bar stylishly juxtaposes the surrounding brick, providing inviting and functional service for any type of event. We offer a range of celebratory bar packages, ranging from exemplary local beer and wine to premium custom cocktails, designed specifically for party personality and aesthetic.

Nordo’s event space provides comfortable space for 56 at a seated event, and 150 in reception style. 

We’re booking now!
