New: Neighborhood Profile: Capitol Hill

Posted on Mar 17, 2017


For some, going home means retiring to a quiet corner to enjoy a predictable evening away from the city’s stressors. For others, going home means embarking on an eclectic adventure full of new surprises and opportunities. If you’re a member of the latter camp, then Seattle’s Capitol Hill might be the perfect place to call home.

Capitol Hill is indisputably one of the Emerald City’s most important cultural hubs, and residents of the hip urban neighborhood can enjoy a vast and diverse assortment of restaurants, bars, and art galleries. In fact, there’s so much to do in Capitol Hill, even longtime natives of the area are still likely to enjoy new experiences and fresh surprises.

If you’re looking for some of Seattle’s best restaurants, Capitol Hill is certainly the place to start. The neighborhood serves up many different kinds of cuisine, so even the pickiest eater can find something to munch on. Stateside uses seasonal ingredients to serve traditional Vietnamese cuisine with an innovative French twist. If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, Poquitos boasts some of the best Mexican food in the city, while Bateau offers delicious farm-to-table ingredients fresh from their farm on Whidbey Island. Or, if you’re in the mood for brunch on a long and lazy Sunday, check out Witness for comfort classics like biscuits and gravy, savannah cakes, and a full assortment of boozy cocktails. And, to top off your meal, be sure to check out the neighborhood’s excellent coffee selection at 1920’s-themed Victrola or, if you’re a vinyl enthusiast, Porchlight Coffee and Records.

Night owls will find more than enough excitement in Capitol Hill’s renowned bars and taverns. Revolution Wine Bar pours some of Washington (and the world’s) finest wines alongside boards of artisanal cheeses. Garage and John John’s Game Room both provide entertainment in addition to drinks, offering pool tables, bowling lanes, or retro arcade games. Tavern Law is renowned for mixing some of the most unique (and thirst-quenching) cocktails in the city.

Capitol Hill is far more than trendy eateries and bars, however, as the neighborhood is also known for its parks and cultural attractions. Volunteer Park is a favorite green space for Seattle residents, with sprawling lawns and a selection of picturesque Japanese maples. The park is also home to the Volunteer Park Conservatory, a venerable structure housing colorful collections of flowers and exotic plants, and the Seattle Asian Art Museum, the proud owner of an art deco facade first built in the 1930s. Art lovers who prefer smaller galleries will still find plenty to love in attractions like the Capitol Hill Art Walk and Ghost Gallery, a center for art and vintage items.

Overall, Capitol Hill’s vibrant, young, and creative culture makes it one of the most popular neighborhoods in Seattle. If you’re looking for the perfect home in one of Seattle’s most popular neighborhoods, be sure to contact Pickett Street Properties at (425) 502-5397 or info@pickettstreet.com.
