Vue

Best nightclub in Belltown, Seattle!
Vue

Vue Luxury Lounge is Chuck Wang’s newest nightlife destination concept and the venue is meant to be a space where a lux lounge, social club, art space, and music playroom all coexist. Walking inside the complex, it’s immediately apparent that Vue is different from anything else Seattle nightlife has to offer. Over a century ago, this Belltown building was a livery stable. By 1929 it became an automobile repair shop, remaining in operation until George Suyama purchased the building for his architectural office and showroom in 1995. Fast forward to November 2018 and this historic building became the gorgeous venue Vue Lounge. Featuring multiple rooms, private karaoke suites, and three full-service bars, the ornate venue brings life to Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. The first entrance to Vue takes guests into the Hypebeast room, fully embodying the “lounge” aspect of the venue. Standing tables adorned with designer logos are aligned along the floor plan, while full-scale, floor-to-ceiling pop-art from local Seattle artist Charms Won adorns the entrance wall. It’s a room meant to draw you in the second you enter. Coupled with plush couches, a stylish crystal-clear DJ booth, and a one-of-a-kind LED drink fridge behind the bar, it’s hard not to be impressed. Vue’s second entrance leads you into the Liquor Room, sponsored by six separate liquor companies, each featuring their own specialty cocktail. Walk straight through either the Hypebeast or Liquor Room, and you’re plunged into the audio-visual masterwork that is Vue’s Main Room. Vue strives to separate itself from your run-of-the-mill nightclub, with the Main Room having all the bells and whistles of a high-end Vegas club. They have everything from the highest resolution TV in the city behind the towering DJ booth that overlooks the room, flanked by twin spiral staircases on either side, Tectonic Audio speakers, a rose wall that is perfect for photos, and a $5000 VIP booth for more personal experience. Finally, there is an official blackjack table near the stairs behind which the bespoke kitchen serves dishes made of home-grown ingredients and fresh local produce and is attached to a vintage wine bar.
