Sky View Observatory
#2 of 106 Sights & Landmarks in Seattle
The observatory itself if very tastefully arranged, with lots of comfy seating, lots of engaging infographics and a neat, little bar that serves snacks and drinks so you can have a drink with a view.
Fabulous view AND you get the added bonus that you can see the Space Needle in a unique view from the top of the observatory.

Smith Tower
#5 of 106 Sights & Landmarks in Seattle
... tower was educational and entertaining the speakeasy that resides at the top was a perfect end to a lovely day and with a hot buttered rum in hand I snuggled up in a comfy seat and admired the beautiful views.
I personally think this view is better than the Space Needle and offers a more unique experience, there is an excellent bar on the top as well that has great cocktails!
