700 4th Ave 73rd floor, Seattle, WA 98104, USA
Great location with walking distance to everything. Amazing views all around! It's beautiful, especially at night. You take an elevator up, it's super fast! They have a coffee bar inside that also serves tapas. My boyfriend took me here and we had a wonderful time.
Incredible views of the city! I went to Seattle on an unusually clear and sunny weekend so I had amazing views of Mt. Rainer. There is a bar where you can order food and drinks from in the observatory. It’s a great place to visit on a nice day to get a bird’s eye view of the city. Would definitely visit again.
Had family come visit and thought about trying this place. Wow, honestly ... better than the space needle. The view is stunning and the service at the sky bar was amazing. They have drinks and food at the top which made it a great experience. Nothing like sipping wine and watching the sunset. If you never been, check it out for date night or next time family is in town.
Sky View Observatory has an amazing view of Seattle, a complete 360 degree view and from 73 floors above to be exact. Nothing is obstructed since it is located in the tallest building in downtown, Seattle. We have been here several times and everyone we've spoken to is very friendly and knowledgeable. And if they aren't, they find the right people who can help you. They throw some really great events that I would highly recommend checking out such as Pride events, 4th of July, yoga, Sunset experiences, etc. The events get pretty busy and packed but if you go on any regular day, the views are breathtaking and it's rather tranquil. They also have fun games like Connect Four if you just want to sit and take in the views. Regardless, definitely a place to check out with the whole family or a perfect place for date night!
Twice as tall and half the cost of the Space Needle. Plus: a 360-view of the city and bay from the center of the action; great food at "down to earth" prices; view-rooms to hang out and play supplied games for as long as you want; explanations of the landmarks you're looking at painted on the interior walls; optional photos of your group with Bigfoot; and a fast, dedicated large bank of elevators that eliminates lines. Also, the Needle is nicer to look at than sit atop. One caveat: parking. As with most of the rest of downtown Seattle, a visitor can spend hours looking for street parking, park blocks away for an exorbitant price, or try to park in the heart of the action for an insanely expensive price and probably be turned down because the lot is full. Cities like this have merely to look to Provo, Utah to see how plentiful free parking turns a dying city center into a vibrant communal destination.
