A century-old building and former manufacturing facility, SoDo Park features a majestic 7,500-square-foot open floor plan, soaring ceilings, exposed beams, and romantic light, making it a beacon of Seattle style. Located in the SoDo industrial district, the venue owes many of its unique features to its manufacturing past, retaining old catwalks and floating doors where mezzanines used to be.
Guests will delight in SoDo Park’s cascading 20′ ceilings, and memorable historical touches that accent events of all sizes. After entering through a dreamy arched entrance, you’ll be invited to sip lush cocktails in the grand hall, or mingle in the cozy courtyard. The addition of drapery creates an elegant, romantic feel while keeping the venue undraped reveals industrial bones.
