Once revered primarily as the monied Mansion District, Capitol Hill is now home to some of the most progressive views in the city—both literally and figuratively. This is where Seattle stays up late, savors its newest James Beard award-winning chef, and lets her colors fly their highest.
Easily the hippest and most vibrant neighborhood in the city, Capitol Hill is the center of as much or as little excitement as you like. Teaming with outdoor cafes, updated classics, and places to sit and watch the day go by.
