Our Venue:  Factory Luxe

Factory Luxe
 
Factory Luxe II
Factory Luxe
The Factory Luxe is a sumptuous event space with a rich Seattle history. The name, "Factory Luxe" was chosen because it represents the unique dual nature of the venue. The outside is an intriguing reminder of an industrial by-gone era while the inside is cozy and luxurious. The combination makes for an exciting space to meet, celebrate and have a good time!
 
Originally named the Mountain Room, it was built in the 1950′s as part of the Rainier Brewery for their tasting room and to host special events. Since then, it has been used as an event space for all kinds of gatherings, meetings and celebrations.  Most recently, it was used as Tully’s conference/event room and barista training center.  In March 2014, it reverted to its original purpose as a unique and cozy space for private events.
 
The Factory Luxe can hold up to 200 for reception, 100 for theater style seating and 80 for seated dinners, making it the perfect Seattle wedding venue. The Factory also has a back room called “The Vault Room” because of the large brick vaulted entryway. This room is approximately 600 square feet and is perfect for sit-down dinners, meetings and small gatherings.
