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.
