A beautifully restored gathering place...

Rediscovering the presence of an old church, the Sanctuary at Admiral offers guests a unique environment at once both refined yet comfortable. The Sanctuary caters to a range of celebrations, both personal and business; with a central stage and beautiful kitchen, the space is ideal for both weddings and dinner parties.

Sanctuary at Admiral's Exquisite Main Room and Speakeasy theme lounge lends itself to a variety of possibilities for your special day – all imbued with the elegance of this beautiful 1929 Art Deco dwelling.

Upon arriving at Sanctuary, you're greeted by our Courtyard, enclosed by wrought iron gates with surrounding landscaping and plenty of seating.

You'll enter the building into the airy Foyer, filled with paintings and objects d'art, where the diamond patterned terrazzo floor is a lovely counterpoint to the soaring 25 foot ceiling.

Our July wedding at the Sanctuary at Admiral was truly exceptional. We enjoyed an event that was carefree and full of joy and laughter thanks to the meticulous planning, execution, and attention to detail by Foodz Catering and our fabulous coordinator, Davi Sabotta. It was love at first sight with the Sanctuary at Admiral venue. It’s handsome features and abundant amenities made it an easy choice- little additional décor was needed, the bride and groom suites were comfortable and necessary, the Speakeasy was the perfect spot for an epic dance party, and each photo was as beautiful as the next- from the outside lawn and patio to the interior rich in colors and texture. We were happy to find it was competitively priced and provided our guests ease on critical points like parking and accessibility that made it our first choice. The quality of food and service from Foodz Catering was simply outstanding. Our food was delicious, our drinks, courtesy of the talented and charming Max, were superb, and, was served with great care, professionalism, and well-orchestrated coordination. Best of all, we felt calm and well-informed from start to finish- all 10 months of planning- under the care and guidance of Davi Sabotta as our coordinator. Davi was responsive and invested in our event from Day One. We benefitted greatly from her expertise and felt at ease having our questions answered, details organized, and needs tended to as we met with Davi regularly over those months of planning. On the day of the wedding, everything ran smoothly, just as we had planned together with Davi, and she tended to our guests and us with the utmost professionalism and sincere care. We had a wonderful wedding at the Sanctuary at Admiral- one we wouldn’t trade for anything. We are grateful for all that was abundantly provided to us in making it an exceptional experience.

Everything was handled for our wedding by the amazing staff both leading up to and the day of. They were really patient and flexible with our needs financially when it came to catering and other budgetary items. I was really impressed with Davi as well as our day of coordinator, Helen and would absolutely recommend this place for any event, but especially a wedding. We got tons of compliments on the venue!

Great venue! Davi is very accommodating and helpful. We had hired her also as a day of coordinator and she did great. Took care of everything and followed all of my million directions and tended to all of our needs. She is the best. The place is gorgeous and would love to have another party there again!!!

Davi was absolutely incredible. From the time we met her to see this amazing space, which is a gem in West Seattle to time time our event was over, it was always apparent that Davi truly loved working with us. Our "gathering" was truly a magical night.

Sanctuary at Admiral is a very unique and special place. We were ready to sign up the moment we drove by and saw the charming courtyard, and castle looking exterior. It's very warm and elegant inside, unlike other venues that are a blank space that you've got to bring character to. The value is unbelievable, because in addition to the actual space where you can marry and quick change to a reception, there's a beautiful bridal suite, speak easy, and separate room for the groomsmen. We received so many compliments on how unique and beautiful the whole wedding was. We worked with Davi who was an absolute doll. She was warm and easy to work with, and knew exactly what needed to be done in order to make the whole wedding and reception come off seamlessly.

Our daughter's wedding ceremony was held at Sanctuary at Admiral and I cannot say enough good things about this venue! It is gorgeous, spacious, memorable, and truly unique. It is absolutely a hidden gem! And Davi, the manager, is a total professional. She was hugely helpful with planning, and very easy to reach whenever we had a question. She has a wonderful aesthetic, and had great suggestions for seating arrangements, decor, and music. On the day of the wedding, she went above and beyond to meet our every need, from providing yummy snacks for the wedding party, to repairing my husband's missing button at the last minute! She just seemed to be wherever we needed her, with a genuine smile and a helping hand. We were all incredibly impressed, and would recommend the Sanctuary at Admiral without reservation.

I know a five star review sometimes looks like over enthusiasm. Not this one. The Sanctuary at Admiral was everything I hoped for (and expected) from my wedding venue and SO much more. There are no words to sum up how much I relied upon and appreciated Davi, the venue coordinator and our impromptu day-of coordinator. She was fabulous in every way! Emails were returned within hours, she was super flexible and accommodating, and she was a huge support the day of the wedding making sure everything was taken care of (logistically AND emotionally!). The venue itself is one-of-a-kind... beautiful, unique, vintage, rich. The stained glass and wood features were stunning, the light was soft and romantic, the speak-easy lounge downstairs was the perfect party space, and the bridal loft was a much-needed retreat during the madness of the day. I wish all brides could be so lucky to have their wedding at the Sanctuary. It was almost TOO EASY!!! I would have paid triple for the value we received, no joke!!! Brides, I cannot recommend the Sanctuary at Admiral highly enough!!!!

We just finished our wedding weekend at The Sanctuary and the whole experience with Davi and staff was PERFECT! The space itself is very unique in the artwork, decorations and layout. We didn't have to bring in much in the way of extra decorations because there is already so much interesting and romantic pieces throughout the building and in the courtyard. This is not your typical cookie-cutter banquet hall, it is really a special, lovely place with its own character. We knew right away this was where we wanted to have our ceremony and reception. Davi, the behind the scenes venue coordinator, could not have been better. She knows the venue like the back of her hand, had answers to all of our questions about the preferred caterers, and she will give you her honest opinion on what works best. She put us at ease throughout the whole process, from choosing our caterer, to the layout of tables and chairs, and being sure the evening ran smoothly. Every five star rating above has earned its rating. If you looking for an intimate venue that will impress your guests and stand out, check out The Sanctuary!

I couldn't be happier with how my wedding day went at the Sanctuary! Davi the wedding coordinator, made sure everything went very smoothly from the florist, to the caterer, to guests arriving, gifts, the ceremony, etc. Nothing went wrong, which was a shock to me because there is always something that goes wrong. Davi was responsive from the get-go. When I initially found the Sanctuary, she was able to show me the place that night. She returns emails in a timely manner and was flexible with my food needs (I'm gluten-free). She even left a little food and drink plate in my bridal suite for me! All gluten-free of course. The location is so beautiful and eclectic. It carries an air of the past in the architecture, art, and decor. The lighting was sometimes a problem for the photographers, but they just used an extra flash. It is an old building, so that is to be expected. I would highly recommend the Sanctuary! I wish I could get married again and experience it all over. It's affordable and they deliver way more than you ever expect.

I just found out that this was voted " Best new reception venue, 2008" by Seattle Bride Magazine. It's so true! This building is just gorgeous, and it's so unique. You absolutely won't find another venue like this in Western Washington.... I know, because I looked EVERYWHERE before booking this. The space is gorgeous, and Dahli is wonderful to work with. Go check it out!
