We created a magical evening last night at the Beecher’s Loft, one of Seattle’s hidden gems, throwing an unforgettable surprise 75th birthday party for 23 guests. The sunny, clear weather added a stunning backdrop through the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the famous Pike Place Market, sparkling Pudget Sound and the Olympic Mountains beyond.
Beecher’s Loft is one of Seattle’s most unique venues. It is perched above Beecher’s Handmade Cheese in the heart of the celebrated Pike Place Market and the perfect refuge to host private gatherings and parties. Adjacent to the Inn at the Market in Post Alley, you access the loft through a private coded and unmarked door, you feel mysterious and privileged sliding in. Then up a flight of stairs and into a jaw dropping space, ideal for surprise parties and wowing your guests.
With western exposure, you can capture Seattle’s beautiful sunset and the sophisticated interiors harmoniously blend the exposed beams and iron rusted counters with warm wood floors, custom furnishings and hand-tufted rugs. Luxury comforts include a long wood dining table, state-of-the-art, full-size kitchen, spacious living room, and a private balcony. Minimal décor is needed to create a celebratory experience and the ambiance is already set into the venue itself. A few gorgeous floral arrangements, a handmade 75 years loved sign, custom matches and gift bags were placed around the space to add some special touches to the evening.
The night kicked off with a cocktail hour, guests enjoyed the view, custom music, appetizers and cocktails from the hosted bar. A server floated around the room asking for drink orders and passing out champagne for a beautiful birthday toast as guests watched the sunset. Then the evening moved into a seated 3-course dinner party as the private chef cooked up delicious dishes for them in the loft’s kitchen. The dinner menu included King Salmon, Mishima Reserve Five Star New York Steak, Beecher’s Mac and Cheese, and Market Fresh Salads and Sides. A beautiful, custom carrot cake with fabulous gold touches completed the meal.
After dinner, guests continued to enjoy the space listening to music, watching a slide show made for the guest of honor on the loft’s big screen and enjoying beverages. The loft also has a bedroom attached to it behind huge sliding doors that the host can stay overnight in after their guests have left and dream about the memorable evening and guaranteed lovely time had by all.
