Collections Café

Collections Café

Chihuly’s lifelong passion for collecting started on the shores of the Puget Sound where he scoured the beach as a boy looking for bright shards of beach glass. Today, his extensive collections include vintage objects and material culture of all kinds. Some items are selected based on their function, others for shapes and colors. Regardless of the reason, all have a personal connection for Chihuly and we are delighted to present them to you in Collections Café.

Collections’ décor draws in part from Chihuly’s iconic Boathouse on Seattle’s Lake Union, and the combination of colors and materials motivated Chihuly to share some of the very collections that adorn the walls of his home and studio spaces.

Within this setting, guests will enjoy a dining experience celebrating Northwest fare coupled with a selection of craft beers and a wine list heavily focused on Washington and Oregon wines. Collections is a true celebration of the Northwest.

The Collections Café offers an original, fresh and uniquely Northwest dining experience for lunch, brunch or an afternoon bite. Admission to the Exhibition is not required for dining at Collections Café.

Like No Oth­er Museum”

The museum has an exquisite collection of Dale Chihuly’s unique art! His glass creations are simply beautiful. Taking them into the garden was a lovely way to mix natural flowers with the man-made creations. We spent a couple of hours, including watching the documentaries about the making of the glass.

Total­ly WOW!!!”

Nothing can prepare visitors for the endless "wow" factor when visiting the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. Every part is amazing! I loved how the garden blends the beautiful glass creations with natural plants, trees, rocks, and logs.

Beau­ti­ful Afternoon”

I was concerned about my 7 year old being entertained but it was so beautiful and unique. I have seen some of his collection in other places but the combination of the garden & glass was spectacular.They do have a children’s guide that I recommend! Just beautiful...
