Turtle Bay Resort
Picture a sun-drenched island in the Pacific. A place of such natural beauty, even business seems like a breezy day in paradise. Welcome to Turtle Bay Resort on Hawaii's North Shore.
Night School at the Sorrento Hotel was established by curator Michael Hebb and hotel co-owner Barbara Malone to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Seattle’s iconic and longest operating boutique hotel. Throughout its early history, the Sorrento was the center for salon-style conversations on topics of the day. Today, Night School is a creative mix of programs and events that reflect Seattle’s true indie spirit, and echoes the hotel’s origin as a cultural and intellectual hub. Here, Night School is a collaboration between the Sorrento Hotel and an array of local artists, writers, filmmakers, mixologists and the leading cultural institutions of the Northwest. For Michael Hebb’s insightful commentary on Night School, go to www.nightnightnight.org.
These events happen daily, weekly and monthly, so check back often to see what’s on the calendar. You never know what you’re going to find at Sorrento Hotel.
The Penthouse Symposium concept is simple – we host leading intellectuals and writers for an intimate and casual course on a subject of their choosing. Attendees gather in the Penthouse Suite, glasses are filled, snacks are served and the dialogue commences. Supplemental reading is provided and participation is encouraged. Seating limited to 50 guests.
As the musical fraction of the Sorrento’s Night School, Chamber vs. Chamber endeavors to spark a dialogue between rock and traditional chamber music, combining classical chamber performances with indie-rock theatrics. Each Chamber vs. Chamber evening will include multiple illuminating performances and lively post performance dialogue with the musicians, hosted by City Arts editor Mark Baumgarten.
In this engaging series leading bartenders, drink historians and quality distillers deliver an animated often collaborative two hour lesson in the preparation and history of distinct spirits and libations. Lessons at the Hunt Club Bar are intimate and limited to 12 participants whereas a larger format in the Fireside Room often features the popular absinthe and whiskey.
In conjunction with The Stranger, the Sorrento Hotel offers the Fireside Room every first Wednesday of the month for folks to gather, grab a bite to eat, a cocktail and to… silently read. Silent Reading provides literary lovers a public venue to nestle by the fire and read in the company of others. Shhh – 6 inch voices please.
Each month luminaries from the Seattle community are invited to also read silently and share with us their post-reading thoughts. Go to book reports on the Stranger’s SLOG.
