AN ICON REIMAGINED
In 1914, Smith Tower became the first skyscraper in Seattle and the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. For more than one hundred years, it has remained a cultural icon of the city, offering breathtaking panoramic views and spectacular architectural beauty. In 2015, Unico Properties LLC purchased Smith Tower and revitalized the acclaimed landmark for tenants, tourists, and visitors alike. Today it features an entirely new visitor experience including a ground-floor gathering place with gifts, souvenirs and treats, historical exhibits telling tales through time, and a renovated Observatory with an open-air observation deck and a speakeasy-style bar where you can enjoy a locally inspired menu of shareable plates and classic cocktails.
Smith Tower's storied past includes connections to radio, rum-running and a host of interesting individuals and scintillating stories you can enjoy with your ticket purchase.
