Venue Features
The Scene:
Our property is nestled right against the shore of North Lake Union with a beautiful view of the cityscape. Adirondack chairs outline the shore, circling an outdoor fire pit made of river stone and crusted with oyster shells. Ride up in your water vessel and park at the dock, we welcome all who travel by sea. Our patio bar is perfect for a cooling cocktail before a trip through our Little Gull Grocery and oyster bar. Offerings include items such as growlers of beer, champagne and wine, charcuterie, local sea salt and bread, exquisite olive oil and wool navy blankets.
Design:
Our open kitchen invites all who adore food a chance to be part of the making. The wood-fired oven lends a rustic hearth and is an integral element in the restaurant. Behind the bar, you'll find a wonderful and busy scene set inside a refurbished sail boat, "Life Aquatic" style, with stories told throughout. The nautical decor invokes reminiscence with a side of tongue in cheek humor.
