The Back Bar

The Bastille Back Bar is the ideal spot for a romantic late night cocktail or drinks and a meal with friends. It is open seating and we do not hold tables or take reservations.

The Back Bar opens Wednesday - Saturday at 4:30pm. 


Inspired by a recent three-month record digging adventure in Thailand, China and Hong Kong, Seattle's Wax Thematique label presents Vinyl Internationalé Thursday evenings at Bastille in Ballard, celebrating the global sounds of Thai-funk, Afrobeat, Eastern Soul, Tropical Jazz and more.

Each week the bar and kitchen will feature specials on cocktails and food. Thursdays from 8 to 11 p.m. in the Bastille Back Bar. All Wax / No Cover.


The Back Bar is also available for full buy out events and is best for dinner for up to 60 people or parties of up to 100 people with a “mix and mingle” format, with seating and stand-up, bar height tables. A room rental fee and food & beverage minimum apply. To book, or for more information, please fill out our Private Parties event inquiry form.
