July 2019 in The Knife Room


The Mission

As small arts venues all over the city fall prey to Seattle’s exponential growth, Nordo is doubling down on our reputation for innovation by creating a new venue dedicated to events with lower overhead and lower ticket prices than our street level Culinarium. We’re calling this beautiful venue The Knife Room, where we will support cutting edge work and create a gathering place for a neighborhood in Renaissance.


The Space

The Knife Room is our incredible subterranean multi-use arts venue in the heart of Pioneer Square where writers, musicians, thinkers, and craftspeople share their gifts with our community.

The Knife Room is still undergoing major renovation! Learn more about this historic transformation and how you can ensure progress on this undertaking here.

Regular events range from wine tastings, to live jazz to burlesque brunches . Nordo’s Jazz Lounge typically features our infamous Mac & Cheese Bar, where guests can select their own combination of toppings on scratch made mac, while Wine Nights and The Sensible Cabaret feature a selection perfectly portioned plates of meats and cheeses, nuts and seasonal offerings.
Menus are subject to change with availability and chef’s whim.

The Knife Room at Nordo is a historic underground venue that is only accessible by a staircase. We are working on options to make it more accessible (this is costly and difficult in a 125 year old building), and in the meantime apologize to those who cannot attend Knife Room events.
