Seattle has no shortage of inspiring venues.

Host your gathering atop the Space Needle or Columbia Center, overlooking Puget Sound at one of the city’s cruise terminals, at the Seattle Aquarium, inside a grand theater or world-class museum, or even in one of Seattle’s massive sports stadiums—all within a walkable downtown core. Your biggest challenge will be deciding which location to choose.

Chihuly Garden and Glass

The Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition provides an extraordinary space for corporate and private entertaining. For one of the most distinctive Seattle experiences, the Glasshouse, Exhibition Galleries and Garden Plaza are impressive settings for receptions, dinners and galas. These one-of-a-kind spaces house a comprehensive collection of Chihuly’s work, and are ideal for corporate or private parties from 50 to 2,000 guests.

Elliott Bay & Lake Cruises

Glide along waterways with spectacular views of Seattle’s skyline, islands and mountain ranges (including 14,000-foot Mt. Rainier). Argosy Cruises offers a variety of boats, themes and locations, such as the Locks Cruise where guests experience going from Puget Sound, through the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in, and into Lake Union. Cruises all launch and return from the Seattle area.

Sports Stadiums

Baseball, football, soccer, or golf fans: enjoy a treat. Rent T-Mobile Park, home of the MLB Seattle Mariners, or the Lumen Field—home to the NFL Seattle Seahawks, MLS Sounders FC, and NWSL OL Reign—located in downtown Seattle. Host a meeting or reception at The Golf Club at Newcastle, just a 20-minute drive away with sweeping views of downtown Seattle, lakes, mountains and green hills.

The Museum of Flight Visit Seattle

The Museum of Flight

Peer up at fighter planes and 85 aircraft while mingling, meeting and dining at the Museum of Flight. Set adjacent to Boeing Field, this venue offers a range of meeting spaces (big and small) with skyline and mountain views outside, historic airplanes inside. Guests can ride flight simulators, marvel at aviation engineering masterpieces and more.

MoPOP at Seattle Center

Mix and mingle below the Space Needle at Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), a modern museum filled with music paraphernalia and hands-on activities—play stations (try drums or piano) and a performance stage for brave souls to release their inner star. Seattle is the birthplace of jazz, blues, rock and folk legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, and Quincy Jones, to name a few.
