You can't beat the location- especially given a beautiful day, which we were fortunate to have. If you're a fan of exposed interiors (brick, beams, etc.) this is an exceptional and unique space. However, it is completely DIY. That could be daunting for some of the more delicate Brides, or perfect for those who are clever, micro-managing, particular visionaries. Plenty of space for a ceremony and depending on your creativity level, a memorable experience for all attending.
In selecting this venue, you must not care that it is in a very public and popular location. *Note> Be aware of parking limitations. Also, the Seattle Parks Department is having a hard time getting a handle on the proliferating graffiti which mars the windows and facade, unfortunately. The employees are most helpful and eager to ensure your rental is suitable, but it's recommended you address specific issues needing attending (dust surfaces, lower stanchions for load-in/out, etc.) with team members. Despite the overwhelming packet of instructions, insurance, permits, etc., it's really an easier process than it seems at first and incredibly cost effective.
Please! The Governor's Suite at The Grand Seattle Hyatt on our Honeymoon Night- GRATIS? Perfection! From the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries awaiting our arrival to the amazing bathroom/jacuzzi tub and ultimately the fabulous bed- it was an exceptional end to a remarkable day.
This is a humongous private home the owners lease out for similar events over the summer. We were beyond lucky to score such accommodations for the Bride's side traveling from primarily the Heartland. MOB was Queen Bee overseeing all things wedding and otherwise throughout the week. We celebrated 2 birthdays here as well as hosting the Rehearsal Dinner Pizza Party. Location was spot on. Highly recommended if you can procure it.
NA- None of our guests took us up on this suggestion, so not sure how it rates.
Sure! Why not? Always a crowd pleaser- though that's the exact reason you're not likely to find us down there anymore, donuts notwithstanding.
Easy to find, parking, plenty of seating (adequate service) and suited our location needs, but there are both far better Vegetarian and Thai restaurants in this city.
Festivals in this town are so wussy. Why a Beer Garden? Why not be able to walk around with your beverage of choice and smoke wherever and whenever the hell you want to? Why so $$ an admittance ticket? Why such questionable and average headliners? Why so many people sucking up the limitations and coming here anyway? Because it's the only option. OK for you? Then go for it.
We love The Dock for its blue collar vibe and plethora of TV sets on game days, as well as the convenient locale. But their Bloodys Buddy (Bloody Marys) are The. Suck. Served in a small rocks glass sans salted rim, with no embellishments (We believe one should eat their Bloody) and little flavor, save for too much Tabasco, they just aren't worth the price. Nor was it justified for us to leave the Governor's Suite at The Grand Seattle Hyatt on our Honeymoon night to schlep down here in the AM on Labor Day. Most of our OoTG had made their way to SeaTac and those remaining knew the Mecca and 5 Spot offer up far better grub and Bloodys- tho' you do have an inimitable wait for said pleasure.
Ordered placed 48 hours in advance, but there was a problematic delay as they'd misplaced the paperwork. As always, though, Pacliacci made good with speedy delivery and sweet discounts. And when they say count on X # of pizzas to feed X # of people, believe their numbers. We didn't initially and ended up calling again.
