We recently had arooftop party here at Cyrene in collaboration with our friends at Seattle Magazine to celebrate the revitalization of Seattle’s waterfront! What a time it was! Featuring bites to eat from award winning local chef Tom Douglas, drinks from Pike Brewing, food pairing by Heartwood Provisions, and dessert from our friends at Indi Chocolate, we couldn’t have asked for more. But this event got us thinking. Out of all the rooftop decks in Seattle, of all the bars and hotels out there in the Emerald City, we can say that, without a doubt, the Rooftop Deck at Cyrene apartments in Downtown Seattle has ‘em all beat. Here’s why:  

1.The Perfect Back Drop

Epic views of the Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, and the Olympic Mountains

This one is pretty obvious. Seattle is one of the most spectacularly scenic cities one can imagine, and with an expansive rooftop deck 16 stories up right in the heart of Downtown Seattle, we are fortunate here at Cyrene Apartments to have sweeping views of the Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, and the Olympic Mountains. We can see it now, a BBQ, cooking up some burgers, friends enjoying drinks and each other’s company while the sunset lights up the sky over the Puget Sound. At Cyrene, you’ll get the best view of the Puget Sound out of any Rooftop Deck in Seattle.

2.Relax by The Fire

Rooftop Deck

What is a late night BBQ with friends or family without a fire? We had that in mind when designing our sweeping rooftop deck with views of the Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains, Space Needle, and Downtown Seattle, so we installed a couple beautiful fireplaces surrounded by ample and comfy seating for all company to enjoy those long summer nights. Fire up the BBQ on our deck and then relax over a burger and beer fireside here at Cyrene Apartments!



Despite Seattle’s rainy reputation, summer tends to be dry and hot. This summer is no exception; it’s been a scorcher and so here at Cyrene, we installed rooftop year-round cabanas to shade you and your guests from the glaring sun. The perfect rooftop deck hangout spot to relax away the day reading a book or BBQing with friends, and with comfortable chairs and couches to boot, this may just prove to be the perfect place to hang out on that perfect, sunny Seattle afternoon.

4.BBQ’s Galore!

Downtown Rooftop Deck

Honestly, what would our wonderful Downtown rooftop deck have been without two state of the art BBQ grills? We again had this in mind when designing the rooftop to host events for residents and their friends and family and so we put two premium Bosch grills up there (Gas provided by us as well) to take care of all your BBQ needs.

Full Kitchen View

A few steps away there is also a full kitchen, shaded cabanas, refrigerator to keep all your drinks cool, and of course, the fireplace/lounge spot that’s perfect for absorbing the sweeping views.

5.Plenty of Seating

When we hosted our event in collaboration with Seattle Magazine, we saw a fantastic turnout. Fortunately, here at Cyrene we have a nearly endless supply of rooftop seating ranging from comfortable chairs, squishy couches, hard backed reading chairs, and everything in between, so there’s always room to stretch out. We loved seeing our guests and residents conversing and socializing in many different spaces throughout our expansive rooftop clubhouse deck.

6.Dedicated Pet Area for our Furry Friends!

Pet Area

Last, but certainly not least, what is a BBQ without a couple of furry friends moseying around the fire or searching for scraps of food? Dogs make the perfect addition to any summer night BBQ with friends and provide us people endless conversation starts for old and new friends alike. That’s one reason we decided to include a dedicated pet area on our roof so that you can keep an eye and feel secure hanging out with your furry best friend during any occasion. So fire up the grill and bring a couple treats for your dog to tie them over while you enjoy these endless summer days here at Cyrene Apartments.

There you have it!

Cyrene’s rooftop was designed to give our residents the premier rooftop experience in Downtown Seattle. So this summer, fire up one of our two rooftop grills with sweeping views of the Puget Sound, throw on some burgers and hotdogs, and you’re set.
