Lake Union Café, a private event venue in the historic 1927 building at 3119 Eastlake Ave. E., has announced that it will be reopening its doors in July as Imperia Lake Union after restorations and improvements are complete.
“This rebrand and restoration embraces the grand event venue décor inside and enhances it with 1920’s touches such as rooms behind hidden doors, glamorous gold and brass fixtures, and more,” according to Imperia’s press release. “It also restores the aging building with new floors, roof, HVAC, kitchens, bar, and more to continue its status as a treasured wedding and event venue in the heart of Seattle.”
From the press release:
Lake Union Café changed ownership on December 1, 2020, and the new owners utilized the opportunity to make business improvements and rebrand to a name that evoked glamour. The new brand is Imperia Lake Union, and the new logo features interlocking art deco infinity diamonds to symbolize lasting unity.
The new focus is on enhancing the venue’s tradition of inclusive services, from in-house and off-site catering to florals, wedding planning, to make event experiences seamless.
“Imperia Lake Union strives to be a treasure in the Eastlake neighborhood, honoring the history of the building while providing a needed celebration space for all,” said Natasha Moser, co-owner of the space with wife Danielle Moser. “We are proud to bring our values of inclusivity and service to this restoration and rebrand and look forward to making once-in-a-lifetime moments even more unforgettable for our clients.”
The previous Lake Union Café brand was carried over from a time when the venue was a café. It operated as Lake Union Café Private Event Venue for over 20 years. Imperia Lake Union reflects the actual use of space for events and the grandeur of the building’s 1920’s roots.
