THE LEGENDS OF SMITH TOWER

AN OBSERVATORY EXPERIENCE

On your way to the top of the tower, explore some of the stories and moments that have made Smith Tower a beloved Seattle gem. Your ticket includes:

  • The journey begins at Smith Tower Provisions general store, a charming spot to sip, snack, shop, or purchase tickets.
  • Access to the The Legends of Smith Tower Exhibits begins "behind the curtain" and continues through the second and Observatory levels. The exhibits take you on a journey through time, providing a glimpse into a time when Seattleites were coming to terms with early Prohibition and technology that would soon transform their city.
  • The experience culminates in the Observatory, now featuring speakeasy-inspired Temperance café and bar. With an intriguing and fun menu  featuring local favorites and craft cocktails with a pinch of Prohibition, Temperance pays homage to Smith Tower's rum-running roots and Chinese Room history.
