Silent Reading Party (In Person) - May 22

Wed, May 22 at 7:30pm

This event has passed.

For the Silent Reading Party, the Fireside Room at the Sorrento goes quiet and fills with people. You bring whatever you feel like reading and read it silently, to yourself, while Paul Matthew Moore plays exquisitely relaxing piano music, and servers bring you food and drinks.

In years past, the popularity of the party meant there was a line out the door, and seats were very hard to get. But we've made some improvements, and now you can reserve your spot in advance!

  • You must be 21+ to attend this party, as it takes place in a room with a bar.
  • There is a $20 food or drink minimum per person, which is not included in the reservation fee. The full dinner menu of the Sorrento's restaurant STELLA is available during this party.

The reading party makes for a romantic date night, a relaxing night out with friends, or a fun solo activity in the city.

This party has been copied all over the world — from San Francisco to Brooklyn, from Nigeria to Australia — but we started it in Seattle, and we do it best. For one, we have live music.
