Host your next corporate event in the country’s oldest Byzantine-style church, restored and reintroduced as The Sanctuary. Located on Fifth Avenue in Seattle’s Midtown neighborhood, the 1907 building is connected to The Mark office tower and Hotel Audrey. It’s an architectural gem, following the beauxarts classical principles and borrowing elements of the early Roman, Byzantine and Renaissance periods.

The Sanctuary offers three levels of event space, with gorgeous detailing, including the original stained glass windows. The Blaine ballroom (which was originally used as the chapel) and balconies can host receptions for up to 760 guests and banquets for 420. It features a 65-foot dome with special lighting, a stage and a projection screen that can be lowered for video presentations. Overlooking the ballroom is the Halo Bar. With space for up to 200 guests, it is the only balcony bar in Seattle.

On the lower floor is the Denny Ballroom with room for 300 guests. The flexible space can also be divided into two rooms. Its entrance includes a modern version of the classic grand staircase.

The Sanctuary’s three state-of-the-art culinary kitchens are overseen by award-winning chef Gavin Stephenson. The building has been garnering accolades across the country and was nominated for NAIOP’s Best Hospitality Venue for 2018.

In the early 1990s, Washington communities and activists had a vision of maintaining green wilderness and creating space where people could embrace the outdoors near urban cities like Seattle. “We’re all better and healthier when we’re connected to nature,” says Caroline Villanova, community and partnerships manager at Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.


Visit Seattle, in partnership with the King County government, will host “Cloudbreak: Seattle’s Revive Live Music Fest,” in support of Seattle’s music community.
