Nodo Downtown is hosting an evening of art and live music on Saturday, January 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. Highlights of the event include the musical stylings of Nic Arp as well as a collection of playbills from Seattle during the late 1980’s. Staff will also be serving complimentary snacks and champagne.

Nodo Downtown Manager Joshua Silver believes this event will lead to similar events in the future. The restaurant has plans for at least two more art showcases and hopes to bring in more musicians as well. The Seattle playbill gallery, presented by Sue Rhomberg, will run until February 28.

The two locations compliment each other well and each serves a different need for residents, Silver says. Nodo Downtown is open later than its sister location and offers more seating for those who desire a more traditional dine-in experience. The original store has a large parking lot, but small dining area, better serving customers who may be on-the-go, Silver notes.

“We have the space to do this, and we want to promote the arts and share that with our customers,” Silver said. “And hopefully the artists will get something out of it as well.”
