Block 41 is a beautiful wedding venue in Seattle, Washington, repurposed from a 1920s ice warehouse. The venue is in the heart of the groovy Belltown neighborhood. Two separate floors combine the best of old and new with leather-wrapped columns, wood pillars, beams, concrete, and steel elements. An abundance of windows allows stunning natural light to flood the space. Also included is a fully landscaped private courtyard complete with a "Greetings from Seattle" mural, which is fabulous for wedding and guest photos.

Facilities and Capacity
The Bert & Tot Ballroom is perfectly suited for elegant sit-down dinners, fanciful ceremonies, and dancing the night away. Located on the second floor, the space provides fun urban views of downtown Seattle. Its interior features beautiful oak floors, brick, and board-formed concrete walls with blackened steel elements throughout.

You will also find fully equipped prep kitchens, ADA-accessible restrooms, a whole building sound system, adjustable overhead lighting, and an area complete with stage lighting. The ballroom accommodates 500 standing or 350 seated guests and features a private outdoor courtyard with colorful LED uplighting, lush greenery, and wooden decking. Every detail is designed to create an oasis in the middle of the city.

The courtyard also doubles as an outdoor event space ideal for up to 50 seated or 110 standing guests. The size and decor make it perfect for cocktail hour, yard games, a food truck, or a sparkler sendoff under the stars. On the first floor, the Ewing Theater exudes a more groovy, industrial aesthetic with large storefront windows, and elements of timber and blackened steel throughout.

The theater can accommodate 300+ standing or 216 seated guests. With a retractable wall, the theater can be separated into two smaller spaces for the ceremony and a cocktail hour and also has fun details such as eight magnetic stationary panels that are perfect for a donut wall, little appetizer shelves, photos of the lovely couple, and more.

Services Offered
Block 41 offers an extensive array of services for weddings and special occasions. Venue rental packages include the use of two preparation kitchens fully equipped for catering services, four mobile bars, and three ceiling-mounted projectors with drop screens. Additional amenities such as round and banquet tables, black padded folding chairs, adjustable cocktail tables, and an on-site event coordinator are also available. The team can host your couple's shower, engagement party, elopement, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception.

    Perfectly located, love industrial chic!

    This last year has been a time to really see vendors true colors and Block 41 did not disappoint. When cases were on the rise again after a small dip during the summer, we finally decided to postpone. We worked with Heli and after urgently emailing multiple vendors to coordinate a new date, it was very easy to reschedule with her. There was miscommunication with another vendor and we needed extra time for set up and it was so easy to add a half an hour. The venue of course is beautiful but that's easy to see. We can also attest to how good the AC was when we were there on our final walkthrough. We love that the audio goes all throughout! There are so many hotels of different price points for all of your out of town guests to stay within at walking distance. 10/10 recommended having the cocktail hour in the courtyard The Greetings mural is such a hit! We can't say enough good things about Heli and the team and the venue!

    Block 41's reply:

    Thank you VERY much for your kind words and great review, Chelsea. Our entire staff enjoyed working with you from start to finish and it was truly a fabulous and beautiful wedding. We hope to see you again in the future!

    Great Service and Unique Venue

    Our school community loved this venue and we had a very successful event here. The space has a great vibe and can be as dressy or informal as you'd like. The staff - especially Jordan Schwartz - was fantastic! Always helpful, upbeat, flexible and responsive to our needs

    Block 41's reply:

    Thank you for the amazing 5-star review! We loved having Villa at Block 41 and can't wait to see you again soon.

Venue Manager

Raised in the Rockies of Colorado, Beth has landed near the water in Seattle. Beth started working events and weddings in college and quickly realized events were a spark of joy and inspiration. Her favorite experiences are summers in Seattle, playing grass volleyball and walking around Green Lake with friends. If she was in space, she wouldn't mind it because space is pretty awesome, just make sure she has plenty of Anthropologie candles (and oxygen for that matter).

Heli was born and raised in Finland. In her early 20’s she moved to Seattle “for a year” and is still here. For many years, Heli was in the travel industry running her own business but found her passion more recently in the events world. She enjoys a good adventure in the outdoors and trying new things, which most recently includes mountain biking. If she was up in outer space, she couldn’t live without her kids and a good lip balm.
