Silent Reading Party: Saturday Brunches (12:30pm - 2:30pm)

April & May Dates

12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. | TICKETS

Whenever there's a reading party, the Fireside Room at Hotel 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.

  • 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 brunch menu of the Sorrento's restaurant STELLA is available during this party.

The reading party makes for a relaxing time with friends, a romantic date, or a fun solo activity in the city. The Silent Reading Party has been replicated around the world — from San Francisco to Brooklyn, from Nigeria to Australia — but we started it in Seattle, and we do it best.

Saturday Nights with Caitlin Sherman

Saturdays | 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. RESERVE 

In an “about damn time” kind of moment, the Seattle based singer-songwriter Caitlin Sherman stepped out solo. She had her fair share of collaborations over the years, most notably the cosmic psych rock of Evening Bell and the hazy noir of Slow Skate. As a songwriter and arranger in both projects, she also held the role of girlfriend and wife. Now she is neither.
