Kick Back With a Cocktail at Habitant While Your Other Half Shops in the Nordstrom Near Avalon Bellevue

If your significant other loves shopping and you don't, that doesn't mean you have to spend the afternoon apart. It just means you might want to plan a visit to the mall accordingly. Check out the Nordstrom at Bellevue Square. While the department store offers plenty of shopping, the in-store bar and restaurant gives non-shoppers something to do while their other half scours the racks.

Located not far from Avalon Bellevue, Habitant is often filled with diners waiting for a shopper in Nordstrom. They keep themselves entertained with blueberry lavender martinis or Billionaire cocktails, the latter of which contains a subtle undercurrent of smoke. However, shoppers also often stop here after they've rung up their clothes and home goods at the register. The shopping excursion might have depleted them to the point at which they require sustenance in addition to a cocktail. If so, try the locally sourced smashed potatoes, the spicy lamb meatballs, or the umami shrimp sliders.
