"Holiday Indulgences"
Entertaining and Decorating … Sipping and Savoring … Mixing and Mingling …
Seattle NACE invites you to share in some of our most favorite holiday festivities. We will be taking over the Alexis Hotel’s Library Bistro, where pre-holiday celebrations will be in full effect, starting with live music from Smooth Groove Productions.
  • We will be featuring the Alexis Hotel’s renowned Chef Caprial Pence, who will be dazzling us all with a cooking demonstration that is fit for the holidays.
  • We’ll experience Jon Throne of Countryside Floral in action, as he displays his expertise in holiday tabletop décor …
  • And we may even have a friendly little competition to find out who amongst us shines with their holiday decorating magic.
  • Alexis Hotel staff will be offering tours of their various rooms, enticing our members to stay …
  • And as if that wasn't enough … scotch tasting? … Yes, highland, lowland, peaty, smokey, caramely!  (Is that word?  Oh well, I sure like caramel!)  Whatever your pleasure, you might find it in a glass.
All this, just in time to help you kick off the holiday season with your NACE friends and family … You won’t want to miss it!
Special Room Rate!
Anyone interested in staying the night on November 11th will be offered a special room rate.  Please email Lori Carchedi directly:

​Ah, yes … the Alexis!
For us, first impressions can't be anything short of spectacular and that means a customized approach to your event whether it's a nuts and bolts business meeting or a splashy soiree. At the Alexis Hotel in downtown Seattle, our creative, art-filled spaces both inspire and deliver results, whether it's one of our boutique sleek event spaces or one of our spacious and versatile suites. We'll provide everything you need, including award-winning dining prepared by the culinary masters at our Bookstore Bar & Café at our downtown Seattle location.
The Library Bistro is a remarkable, eclectic, space. You won’t find any other space quite like it. Open only for private events. Reserve the entire restaurant or just the upper level without the hefty price-tag usually required with a full restaurant buy-out. Get comfy in the high-back faux lizard booths surrounded by 10-foot tall bookcases boasting hundreds of books by famous and infamous authors. Breathe in the fresh marine air when the French doors are opened up to a small balcony that overlooks historic Post Alley. The Library Bistro makes for great formal dinners for up to 100 guests and ultra stylish receptions for up to 150.
