Parlor Live Comedy Club in downtown Bellevue closes

Parlor Live Comedy Club in downtown Bellevue seems to have closed permanently though there's no official announcement from the company.

The Parlor Live website still lists the scheduled events, however the ticketing website for the Parlor shows that all the scheduled comedy shows have been cancelled. A few shows have been moved to other local venues including popular Bollywood comedian Vir Das, who was scheduled to perform at the Parlor this weekend, has been rescheduled for May 9 at the Neptune Theatre.

The band Nite Wave, who were scheduled to play at the Parlor on Saturday, sheds more details on the venue closing in their Facebook post:

    "Two weeks ago we caught wind from some employees of The Parlor that due to some very top level drama between landlord and tenant that the Parlor was indeed shutting down. It came very unexpectedly and we heard the venue could close anytime between mid-April to late May. Talks were still happening on when Parlor had to be out.

    Last Tuesday we connected with Parlor to check in on if our April 20th show would indeed be happening. We were told it was indeed closing and once they had word on the final day they would let us know.

    We continued to hear rumors from some employees that 4/15 was their last day and all of the staging and equipment was gone. In the meantime we tried calling , e-mailing and more to at least get confirmation on the date being cancelled and tickets being refunded. We officially have not heard back directly from the Parlor. However through talking to some employees we can confirm that 4/15 is the last day of business for the Parlor."

Parlor Live, located on the third floor of Lincoln Square, opened in downtown Bellevue in 2005.
