Mix and mingle below the Space Needle at EMP Museum, a modern museum filled with music paraphernalia and hands-on activities—play stations (try drums or piano) and a performance stage for brave souls to release their inner star.

Convention and meeting attendees can relish fine, fresh fare across Seattle. Organic cuisine. Northwest produce. Washington-grown, world-class wine, beer and coffee. Culinary creativity. That’s Seattle’s style—complete with acclaimed chefs at restaurants ranging from Asian fusion or Italian to succulent seafood or pub grub.
Give your group meals as delicious as the mountain and water view. Rent out private dining rooms or an entire restaurant. A sampling to whet your appetite:
Salmon, oysters, clams, halibut – the list goes on. A mecca for seafood lovers, Seattle sits on Puget Sound with the nearby Pacific Ocean, rivers and lakes feeding the area. Seafood restaurants are a staple in Seattle and the range of flavors and dishes is vast—from sushi to crab cakes to fish & chips.
Organic and local. Farmer’s market fare, sweet and savory. The slow food movement is alive and well in the Northwest. Seattle restaurants sprinkle fresh ingredients right from their own back yard onto dishes—fresh basil on pesto pasta; organic apples or cherries in pie; artisan cheese from local farms.
Asian, Italian, Latin and Northwest fusion. Seattle boasts an array of ethnic eateries; plus, the art of fusion (blending ethnic dishes with Northwest flavors). Culinary creativity abounds in this city with abundant farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, herbs, wines, seafood and artistic talent.
