A Little More About Us

In 1914, Smith Tower became the first skyscraper in Seattle and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. For more than one hundred years, it has remained a cultural icon of the city. Today it features an entirely re-imagined visitor experience, including a ground-floor gathering place with gifts, souvenirs and treats, historical exhibits telling tales through time, and a renovated Observatory with an open-air viewing deck and bar where you can enjoy a locally inspired menu of shareable plates and classic cocktails. The Smith Tower Observatory experience is ideal for visitors and locals looking to take in the stunning 360-degree views of downtown Seattle over a craft cocktail in our speak-easy style hideaway nestled high in the sky.

Smith Tower also offers a historic yet cosmopolitan space for private events and weddings. Indoor and outdoor spaces are available with panoramic views as the backdrop. More than 4,500 square feet of event space is available, perfect for celebrating occasions of all kinds.
