The Building

The Golden Gardens Bathhouse offers a spectacular waterfront location to host your next special event. Your guests will never forget their experience at this unique venue!

Visualize this scene for your ceremony, reception, seminar, or party: serene forested hillside to the east, and to the west, a beautiful sandy beach, sailboats on Puget Sound, and the sun setting over the Olympic Mountains-just 14 minutes from downtown Seattle!

The historic Golden Gardens Bathhouse, located just west of the Ballard neighborhood, was built in the 1930s and is located in the iconic Golden Gardens Park. Independent heating keeps the bathhouse warm in the winter, and cross ventilations keep it cool in the summer.

The Main Hall comfortably accommodates up to 140 seated guests, and can accommodate up to 295 for a standing room only event. The Main Hall features a cathedral ceiling with many skylights that flood the room with natural light.

â—¾Tables (18 round tables, 60-inch in diameter, and 18 rectangular tables, 30-by-72-inches) and 140 chairs
â—¾Independent temperature control in each room
