Thousand Acre Cider House, located at 109 Grand Ave Suite 101 in downtown Bellingham, will host local bands performing live music every weekend through Summer ’21 beginning Friday May 7th. Lefty and the Right Hand Band, a Bellingham-based Rock & Blues band, perform this Friday from 7-9 PM outdoor.
The venue created a covered patio for customer seating and a stage area for bands to safely distance from each other during performances to follow the Governor’s Phase 3 restrictions during the COVID-19 crisis.
For guests preferring to sit inside, speakers cast the band’s music indoor to the spacious 1,600 sq ft. bar area where additional spaced seating is available. Music genres vary by artist weekly.
“When we opened our doors in August 2019, we were pleasantly surprised that live music became a key part of our identity. Little did we know that six months later, everything about our business would be completely flipped,” says Thousand Acre’s co-owner Jenny Hagemann. “Our creativity, our staff’s tenacity and commitment to safe service, and unbelievably supportive community got us through 2020 and now we are thrilled to celebrate the return of live music and more hopeful days ahead,” she adds.
Larry O’Connor, founding member and bassist of Lefty and the Right Hand Band says, “After many long months practicing, hoping, and waiting to be able to perform again, we are so excited to bring music to the street at Thousand Acre Cider House.”
Customers are encouraged to pre-book tables for all performances online at https://www.thousandacreciderhouse.com/. Any remaining tables will be first come, first served. Cover charges go directly to the bands.
Patrons can also enjoy a rotating tap list of hard cider, craft beer, wine, and Thousand Acre’s specialty Cidertails (cider-based cocktails). For food options, Thousand Acre offers gourmet charcuterie boards and baguette sandwiches and allows food from neighboring restaurants to be consumed onsite. The venue is 21+ only.
