Featured Chamber Member - Melrose Market Studios

1532 Minor Ave
Seattle WA 9812 2

A hidden gem tucked underneath the bustling Melrose Market on the west edge of Capitol Hill, Melrose Market Studios has been the backdrop for everything from intimate weddings to large-scale networking events. Corporate retreats, political functions, community fundraisers, and lavish black tie affairs have all found cozy homes amidst the exposed brick walls and Douglass fir beams.
With room for up to 200 for sit-down service, or 300 reception style-let Melrose be your canvas! Paint onto it a tantalizing menu by Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes Catering, a DSquared company, and color it in with local beer, wine, and craveable cocktails. T&T will frame it with whatever service staff and rentals you might need to bring your event to life. The entire team is passionate about combining fresh, delicious, creatively prepared food with exceptional attention to every guest.  
Schedule a tour now to fall in love with all of the ways you could make Melrose Market Studios your own.   Don't need a venue?  T&T can bring the party to you.

Coffee with a Cop at Starbucks Olive Way

2-3:30pm, March 9
1600 Olive Way

Join SPD Chief O'Toole and members of the East Precinct at Starbucks Olive Way for a cup of coffee and conversation on the issues that matter most to the Capitol Hill community. Starbucks is bringing residents and police officers together to meet and share experiences to foster greater understanding  around relevant topics and to find common ground. 

March Capitol Hill Artwalk - Plus News and Updates!

5-8pm, March 9
Various Venues

Join us for Capitol Hill Artwalk next Thursday and celebrate our vibrant, artsy neighborhood!


New Due Dates!  General rule: 10 days prior to the art walk date. This gives us time to get all your info loaded onto the website, and visitors time to see what's happening and make plans. It also gives us a chance to promote your event on our Instagram and Facebook accounts leading up to the art walk

Printed and Mobile Maps!   We're planning to have a printer-friendly map available on the website so that art walkers and venues who want to have a print version can print it themselves

We'd like to hear from you if you have any suggestions or ideas to help with the transition to mobile & print-your-own. For example, do you think it useful that we print postcards with the URL for the art walk map and listings, so people who ask (or wonder silently) where to go next can use that as a reference? 

Please do give us feedback and ideas on anything related to the art walk. 
We love our neighborhood and appreciate all you to do to keep it creative!
