Chef Nordo's events transcend food and performance. He scoops you into a surreal world where the finest ingredients, exquisite storytelling, and beautiful wisdom are woven together by a masterful chef and entertainer. Then he sends you out into the night air, to tipsily wonder if you will ever experience anything like it again. Be sure to join Chef Nordo's mailing list to be the first in line for tickets.
What is Nordo's Culinarium? Imagine a place where innovation, creativity, food, live performance and art live all year round. Imagine it in a historic, beloved building in a neighborhood at the beginning of a renaissance. Chef Nordo has imagined it.
Nordo's Culinarium at the corner of Main & Nord Alley, former home of The Elliot Bay Book Company in Pioneer Square, not only hosts Café Nordo, but also acts as a crossroads between the culinary and performing arts. Throw in literary and visual arts too, with our characteristic disregard for temperance, and we've given Seattle an unparalleled arts destination.
In a city teeming with genre-benders we are asking local artists and artisans to play in the Cafˇ Nordo sandbox.
Besides housing the beloved Elliot Bay Book Company, the Globe Building (completed in 1891) has housed such storied tenants as an illegal still, (which accidentally blew out all of the second floor windows in a 1924 explosion) and a barbershop that was rumored to be a front for prostitution (Seattle's oldest profession). Cafˇ Nordo has proudly joined these nefarious and prestigious ranks.
RENTALS: The Culinarium is available for special events. Capacity is 60 seated and 90 mingling. Please inquire at Rentals@CafeNordo.com
