The most recent private venue to grace the streets of Seattle is anything but a brand new building. Originally a 1927 ice warehouse, Block 41 is a revamped two-level building featuring 13,000 square feet of event space. Located in the heart of Belltown, the hotspot offers three discrete indoor spaces and a landscaped outdoor courtyard.
“Block 41 is unlike anything else in downtown Seattle,” says Dan Temkin, owner and developer of Block 41. “I knew we had a special opportunity the moment I walked in the door.”
The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia will undergo a complete transformation later this year.
