A great way to take advantage of the Seattle scenery for your next corporate event (or happy hour) is with a rooftop venue. The Seattle skyline, Puget Sound, and many surrounding lakes all create some of the most beautiful views you’ll ever see, especially in the city.
Many rooftop venues in Seattle offer both indoor and outdoor seating, ensuring that they can be utilized year-round. While we love our sunny summers, it’s no secret that Seattle has been known to rain a bit – so flexibility is a great perk for any outdoor event space.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite rooftop venues in Seattle for corporate events:
1. The Nest
First up is The Nest, perched atop the Thompson Seattle hotel. The Nest is a chic rooftop venue that offers panoramic views of the city skyline, Elliott Bay, and the Olympic Mountains. The Nest is perfect for both casual networking events and upscale cocktail receptions. They feature a variety of craft cocktails, Pacific Northwest beers, and delicious bites. The space can be enclosed, making it a great year-round rooftop option.

Before you book your event at a rooftop venue…
The one aspect that you’ll have to see (or taste) for yourself is just how great the cocktails, beer, and other menu items are at every single venue. Seattle sure hit the jackpot when it comes to great cuisine and cocktails. You can’t go wrong with any of these options, but it definitely is fun to visit and see which one you like best.
