About Events with Block 41
Block 41 is a new and exciting private event venue in downtown Seattle. Located in the heart of Belltown, the impeccably renovated 1927 former ice warehouse offers three discrete indoor spaces on two levels, plus a landscaped outdoor courtyard. Award-winning architecture firm Graham Baba, along with other local artists and craftsmen, collaborated to repurpose this vintage industrial building into a unique and elegant multi-purpose venue. Block 41 combines the best of old and new – massive old growth timber, exposed brick walls, and vintage car decking merge gracefully with blackened steel, leather column wraps, and state-of-the-art building systems. Encompassing the upper level of the building and elevated above the bustle of Bell Street, the Bert & Tot Ballroom is a bright and airy space with daylight streaming in from three sides. The ballroom is a blend of luxury and industrial chic with wide plank oak floors, brick and board-formed concrete walls, leather-wrapped columns, blackened steel, and massive old-growth timbers. Amenities include a fully equipped prep kitchen, modern ADA rest rooms, a full air handling system and state-of-the-art AV and lighting equipment with two projectors and retractable screens. The ballroom has the added bonus of a private Outdoor Courtyard, a landscaped oasis accessible through a large glass roll-up door.The Ewing Theater is equipped with an expandable DMX control lighting system and state-of-the-art AV equipment, providing everything you need for a disco, fashion show, photo shoot or Las Vegas-style casino experience. It can also be a calm focused place for meetings, product launches, or training sessions. Modern amenities in the theater are thoughtfully blended into the historical elements of the building’s lower level with raw, board-formed concrete walls, unfinished Douglas fir support structure and polished concrete floors. Convenient load-in and load-out is provided through a large roll-up door accessed through the alley. With a retractable wall, the theater can be split into two spaces, hence the Musings Gallery.
