Fratzke Commercial Real Estate Announces The Capitol in Downtown Bend

Fratzke Commercial Real Estate Advisors, Inc. is proud to announce that a new restaurant, bar and venue has announced plans for a full build-out of the currently vacant basement space in downtown Bend at 190 NW Oregon St.

*The 6,900 square-foot space, which is located below Patagonia@Bend, Bend Mountain Coffee, Wild Rose Northern Thai Eats and Bishops Barbershop, is planned to be primarily a restaurant, but will also function as a bar, concert venue and rentable space for community events and receptions.

The name of the business is a hand-me-down from one of Bend’s original establishments, The Capitol Theatre, which was open from 1922-1955 located on the corner of Greenwood and Wall, now the Bank of America and adjacent parking lot. Co-owners Sean Day and Nate Edgell—both longtime Oregonians and food and music industry professionals—hope that the spirit of entertainment and local history of the theater will live on through The Capitol.  “We liked the name, and the feeling of bringing back the history of the town with a modern twist and feel,” explained Day. “B.A. “Dutch” Stover who owned the original Capitol Theatre also had two other theaters in the downtown area. He was an entrepreneur and a visionary. He wanted to see this town grow and be fun everyone. We hope to bring the spirit of Dutch into our spot,” adds Day.

A complete renovation of the space is currently in the works by local architect team Stemach Design & Architecture, who had a hand in the 2013 remodel of Dojo Asian Lounge & Raw Bar and the interior design of 10 Barrel’s Galveston pub.

Stay tuned on The Capitol’s Facebook page for updates on their progress, and potential opening dates in 2015.  Contact: Sean Day
