Smith Tower

Experience the iconic, world-famous Smith Tower Observatory with its historic Otis elevators, stunning 360-degree views of Seattle, and open-air viewing deck. For over a century, visitors have come here to take in Seattle from above, relax, and have a good time. When you visit, be sure to have a seat in the Wishing Chair, and keep your eyes out for more Smith Tower legends as you explore the thirty-fifth floor. Smith Tower’s storied past includes connections to radio, rum-running, and a host of interesting characters and scintillating stories you can enjoy with your ticket purchase.

Your experience culminates in the Observatory, featuring a speakeasy-inspired bar with an intriguing and fun menu featuring local favorites and craft cocktails with a pinch of Prohibition that pays homage to Smith Tower’s rum-running roots and Chinese Room history.
