An offbeat birthday celebration idea in Seattle - especially for the fitness buffs. Schedule a session for yourself and a few close friends at the SBP.


While they don’t do birthday parties as such, they take group bookings, and you and your friends can have a blast putting your bodies to the test.


Popular birthday activities would be rock climbing, yoga, and a meal at their cafe (which includes a bar).


Please note, you need to schedule your bday celeb group in advance.


Website: Visit their website


Address: They have two locations where large groups can be booked - one in Poplar, and one in Fremont.


Contact for large groups: Poplar - groups@seattleboulderingproject.com. Fremont - fremont@boulderingproject.com.

Seattle Glassblowing Studio

Another idea for a birthday party in Seattle that’s completely unique. Spend your special day learning the intricate art of glassblowing.


It takes time, it takes patience, and it takes some creativity…but once you’re finished with your project, it will be extremely satisfying to see the glass art that you have created.


You can take whatever glass piece you create and keep it at home as a permanent memory.


Now, the piece will take time to cool down, which is why they schedule pickups 2 days after. They also coordinate shipping, on request.


They can host groups of up to 30 people.

Fox in a Box escape rooms (that’s us)


A classified military bunker has been infiltrated by a rogue agent, who has initiated a nuclear launch sequence. Can you lead your special ops team on a top secret military mission to infiltrate the bunker, stop the launch, and fend off a nuclear war? You have 60 minutes…


An event you will never forget, right?


That’s exactly what you can expect from a birthday party here at Fox in a Box escape rooms in Seattle.


We have three escape games…

  • Mission Bunker, the one I just talked about,

  • Prison Break, where you need to escape a maximum security prison, plus

  • Zodiac Killer, which sees you trying to escape a serial killer’s lair.

And you can make a multiple booking for your big day.

Garage (Billiards and Bowling)

A birthday party in a 1920’s retro themed building, complete with bowling lanes, pool tables, bars, games (everything from ping pong to jenga), and of course a place to grab some grub.


If you used to haunt some of those old school bowling alleys during your own schooldays, you may feel this a little different, but…


You’ll love the swanky layout, with all the cool little features like the firepit on the patio. As far as the food is concerned, you can check out their gyros, burgers, fries and beer.


Yep, they are popular, and so always have a lot of people but on the other hand they’re also huge so you won’t feel like you’re celebrating your birthday in a crowded mess.

New Luck Toy (a bar in West Seattle)

Hang on. What’s so unique about having a birthday party at a bar? you might ask.


Here’s the deal: New Luck Toy is certainly a bar with a difference. Plenty of skee-ball and karaoke opportunities in a backdrop of paper lanterns and waving cat ornaments, plus of course the great food and drinks.


It certainly makes for a different kind of a birthday party experience, doesn’t it?


Food options: sample their General Tso’s chicken, shrimp and pork dumplings, and the honey pecan prawns. Make sure you ask for their dipping sauce (with five spices) that’s to die for.


Among the beverages, try their tiki cocktails and the Seattle cider.


Website: Visit their website


Address: 5905 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98136.

iFLY Indoor Skydiving

Looking for an outdoorsy, adrenalin-pumping adventure on your birthday WITHOUT actually venturing into the outdoors?


How does indoors skydiving sound? Unlike any other birthday celebration you’ve had, right?


And they can certainly whip up a treat for your special day. They’ll actually train you on the essentials of skydiving and how to use the equipment first, and only after the training will you be sent into the actual dive itself.


On request, your party will be topped up with pizza and beverages, plus some videos and photos of the proceedings!

Pike Place Market food tour

An awesome choice for the foodies and cultural buffs.


A guided tour of the narrow corridors, back alleys and tiny storefronts that make up a Seattle landmark - Pike Place Market…


With an emphasis on different foods and cultural aspects of the huge and diverse community of sellers and buyers there.


Expect everything from The Joe Mocha Bar to Pike Place Chowder, from 3 Girls Bakery to Beecher's ‘World's Best’ Mac and Cheese, Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt, the Pike Place Fish Market (where they throw the fish), and so on!


Learn about the history of the places, talk to the vendors, and have a tasty bite from stop to stop!

Planning your birthday at Alley MIC

Wanna make it a completely DIY birthday party in Seattle? Perhaps as a followup to the Pike Place Market food tour?


Then take it to Alley MIC. An awesome party venue in Pike Place Market, where you can get:

  • A game room for board and video games.

  • Karaoke machines, and a space to dance.

  • A lounge-style back room with a billiards table and a darts board.

Capable of accommodating up to 50 people for your special day.


They serve a range of non-alcoholic beverages, and you can also arrange for your own food and beverages to be delivered from nearby restaurants and pubs.

Had enough of the real world? Want to celebrate your birthday in a virtual world, where anything can happen?


Then Portal VR is definitely where you should have your bday event. Especially if you haven’t done VR before.


They have a good selection of games that will appeal to all kinds of tastes. The staff are helpful, and will help you with game rules and the VR headsets, which is especially important for first timers.


They have a decent snack menu and beer, which should be a great appetizer for your main birthday dinner!
