Hoan and I had the opportunity to visit Sky View Observatory on Thursday for their Community Night. The Sky View Observatory is the tallest observatory here in the Pacific Northwest and has 360 degree views of Seattle and beyond.
Sky View is located on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center in DT Seattle and is such a cute place to visit! The Community Night we attended was in honor of Pride Month where they offered pride inspired drinks with names like Rainbow Sorgay and Let’s Get Beary Turnt. The presentation was adorable with so many vibrant colors and not to mention, super tasty! Hoan and I got the OMG Rainbow and the Let’s Get Beary Turnt, plus OF COURSE you’ve got to have some jello shots so we got those too!
We then stopped by the BINGO tables where you could play BINGO also for free. Winners won things like a Jenga set or a rainbow feather boa. Hoan and I unfortunately didn’t win, but we had a blast connecting with the BINGO host, Sylvia O’stayformore. As you can see, we’re basically like best buds now 🙂
My favorite part of the night though was dinner with killer views and being able to watch the sunset from 73 floors above with my love. There’s something about being so high above everything else and seeing as far as the eye allows that brings a sense of awe and calmness for me.
We had such a blast visiting Sky View Observatory and would highly recommend it to any Washington Native or if you’re just visiting Seattle. We love that they host a variety of events and are really looking forward to coming to more! In honor of Pride month, Sky View has events scheduled throughout the month of June. For more event info see below. Happy Friday Beauties!
