The Fremont Foundry is a versatile event venue located in the heart of the charming Fremont neighborhood. A former working metal foundry and artist commune custom built by local artist Peter Bevis, the Fremont Foundry is where some of Seattle’s most iconic art such as the Jimi Hendrix statue was created.
Host your event in a sky-lit atrium with a 20-ft ceiling while drinks are being prepared in the outdoor courtyard, or share your vows on the rooftop terrace with sweeping views of North Seattle and enjoy a delicious dinner and lively reception in our historic space.
The Atrium provides ample seating for ceremonies and receptions, along with offering plenty of industrial charm and modern features. The adjoining Studio features a hand-painted mural paying homage to Seattle’s official bird, The Great Blue Heron, and includes a built-in bar for endless craft cocktail service. Enjoy the sunshine and views of North Seattle on the rooftop terrace with adjoining Penthouse, perfect for small gatherings, cocktail hours and breathtaking ceremonies.
“Having the venue handle the food, bar, tables, chairs, set-up, take down, etc. was SO incredibly helpful in making our day feel as stress free as possible. The food was delicious and well presented and all of our guests had an amazing time!”
