Last night we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Columbia Tower Club in style at their wonderful black tie gala to mark the occasion. Most citizens of Seattle know the Columbia Tower building well as the tallest building of the Seattle skyline at an impressive 932 feet and housing 76 floors which was completed in 1985. The 75th and 76th floors are home to the Columbia Tower Club- a well established private business, networking and fine dining club. John and I recently became members as part of the club’s Tower 39 club which looks to expand the club demographic by catering to young professionals. Today, Tower 39 makes up about 40% of the club’s membership! We were drawn by all of the social and professional benefits and activities on offer such as business and networking events centered on various topics, art gallery tours, wine and scotch tastings, Easter brunch, and so much more which will allow us to connect with great professionals from around the city and make new friends. And of course one of the best perks is enjoying the sweeping views of the city from 76 floors up!
Last night’s gala certainly showcased Columbia Tower Club’s best and was a night to remember! Everyone was dressed in their black tie best and danced the night away to the live band playing hits from the 80’s and enjoying drinks at 1980’s pricing near the gorgeous up-lit ice sculpture of the tower. As we nibbled on fresh oysters and pasta from one of the club’s many spreads of food we chatted with one of the founding members who reminisced about contributing funds to the creation of the club and visiting it even before the construction of the building was complete!
The Columbia Tower club certainly put on a class event and we absolutely cannot wait for upcoming events such as a meet and greet with the pilots of the Blue Angels and future black tie events. A big thank you to the staff of CTC for putting on such a special and memorable evening.
