The downtown Bellingham area has seen its share of turnover in the business district. While many bars and nightclubs have attempted to open, many are eventually forced to shut down due to a wide variety of noise complaints.
This is why we’re slightly surprised to hear that another new venue, The Shakedown, plans to open in mid-March of this year. The difference between this music venue and those from the past is simple – soundproofing.
The owner, Hollie Huthman, has spent a considerable amount of time working to make sure that the venue’s events will not cause concern to those in the apartments overhead or nearby.
Bellingham’s music scene is thriving. Let’s hope Hollie Huthman has a plan that will withstand the test of time.
