If you are looking for a view of Seattle like no other it is worth the $12 to ride the vintage elevator to the top floor. The ambiance and historical furnishing of the bar/restaurant bring a unique experience. Plus the easy access and full surround...More

Just the elevator alone is incredible, and the gentleman who operates it gives you a short and sweet history lesson on your way to the 35th floor. 360 open air viewing deck and a bar with some great craft cocktails. It was low key and...More

I have a mixed review because we went up here last year and I would have given it a 4 out of 5 stars but recently we went a second time and I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars. It's a good...More

Fabulous views and interesting exhibits especially if interested in vintage office items. I would skip the Space needle and crowds and do this instead!
We appreciate the great review and the recommendation! Come back soon. All my best, Woody Braden
The Smith Tower is an amazing piece of the Settle history. Touring the building itself is well worth the fee, then you rise to the obsertvation deck on the 35th floor for an amazing view of Seattle and Puget Sound while enjoying a nice coctail.
Thank you for coming to see us in Pioneer Square. We are glad that you enjoyed the amazing history, views, and wonderful craft cocktails. All my best, Woody Braden
The original elevators and floors. Beautiful views. The Chinese room is cool. I sat in the "Wishing Chair", but still no marriage proposals...
Ha! We love that you joined us and sat in the fame Wishing Chair. It'll happen... All our best, Woody Braden
My Red Hat Group of ladies took a trip to the Smith Tower. It has a view that is better than Space Needle and costs a lot less. Ride the original elevator to the top and take in the history and view. Good bar for...More

Smith Tower was a great experience. You get a great view along with some history on the foundation of Seattle. The Chinese room at the top of the tower has a wonderful view with some tasty drinks. I recommend going up a bit before sunset.
Sunsets at Smith Tower are the best. Yes please! Thank you for joining us and for leaving such an amazing review. We are here for you. Very best, Woody Braden
