Seattle Tours

The more venues I tour, the more I realize that there truly is a venue specialized for everyone! This past week I had the opportunity to visit a few more of these unique venues right in our backyard!

Piatti Ristorante & Bar- University Village
Last week Piatti invited me out to lunch and I couldn't turn down the invite for an authentic Italian meal! As their event coordinator introduced me to their restaurant I savored every bite of my meal. Not sure if it was the fresh home baked bread or my soup, but it sure hit the spot! Piatti not only serves a delicious menu but is available for private dinning and events. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating making it an ideal spot for a smaller event. I'm thinking this is the perfect location for rehearsal dinners and intimate social parties!

Seattle Aquarium
Touring the Seattle Aquarium reminded me of how much fun it is to spend a day looking at life under the sea. From the octopus to the fish, I could have stayed all day! As you can imagine being an event planner, my mind was racing with all types of events you could hold at the Aquarium. A wedding, birthday party, corporate event, progressive dinner, my mind is still buzzing with ideas! There is even a special outdoor area not well known around Seattle for hosting a one of a kind ceremony or event! If the tour wasn't enough, I got to sample some of the food at the Aquarium which I must say is not what you would expect from an Aquarium!

Four Seasons
Step into the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle and you are in the center of elegance and first class service. Walking through the hotel, you will soon discover why Institutional Investor rated Four Season Hotel Seattle as the 28th best hotel in the world and best hotel in Seattle! Your wedding will be the talk of the town if hosted here, just view some of the photos from past weddings at Four Seasons!

The Edgwater
The Edgewater is Seattle’s only waterfront hotel and iconic urban retreat. It is the perfect mix of the classic Pacific Northwest look, yet still presents the ultimate elegance sought after for an event. Their Olympic Ballroom features floor to ceiling windows allowing your guests panoramic views of the sound. The intimate Terrace Room warms the heart with a flickering fireplace and sunny outdoor deck. Then there is the private dining room in The Edgewater's Restaurant, Six Seven. While touring the hotel I made sure not to miss a chance to step inside the famous Beatles Suite where the Beatles once stayed and were caught fishing out of the hotel room!

Shilshole Bay Beach Club
The Shilshole Bay Beach Club gives the impression that you have been transported away from Seattle to a tropical location minus the balmy weather! Located on the Ballard waterfront, this venue offers views from every room with the cool breezes and magnificent sunsets. The Shilshole Bay Beach Club offers two rooms that may be rented together or individually with attached waterfront patio space.
Radar Lake
Thirty six years. That's how long this man made lake has been in our backyards without most of us knowing about it. This famous lake, nestled in the foothills of Redmond, set the wheels in motion for what water skiing has become today. When I drove into the private gated property, I couldn't help but wonder how this 120 acre property could be so hidden in the Seattle area? They have been hosting skiing events ever since its beginning but are just starting to push into the event industry. From corporate events to weddings this venue has it all. Or if you are looking for a place to rent a private lake for the day and practice your water skiing, this is the place! Feel like staying the night? Why not park your RV or pitch a tent or stay in their cabin? I feel summer calling my name here!
