When you step into The Lab, you feel this old-science, meets modern inventiveness — with a dash of mystery in the mix. You walk away having experienced something special — and hopefully having learned something new, maybe mysterious, and always fascinating.
You can reserve The Lab at Ada's for parties, meetings, workshops, micro weddings, and receptions. We offer a full bar, amazing, vegetarian, on-site catering (or you can bring your own) and, with the adjacent courtyard and bookstore, we have lots of options for the perfect layout. The Lab also hosts weekly learning and tasting experiences — from unique coffee brewing to cocktail mixology.
How I cater to offbeat weddings
We are a small, intentionally designed, venue with a dark, science lab vibe. Our ideal clients are people that are curious by nature and into all things geek! Perfect for your intimate Capitol Hill wedding reception, Seattle elopement, or micro wedding!
"The Lab was everything I could have wanted and more in a Capitol Hill wedding venue. The décor is stunning and creates a bit of a speakeasy meets sophisticated science vibe, but is subtle enough that it can carry whatever theme you want. I loved the flexible seating options and I cannot say enough about how beautiful the bar set-up is.
One of my favorite things about the Lab, however, is its staff. Every staff member that I met with thoughtfully listened to my vision for the party, provided great suggestions, and executed the plan seamlessly and, truly, beyond my expectations.
The specialty cocktails they crafted specially for the event were a huge hit, as was the rest of the well-stocked bar. The catering was also exceptional and was plated beautifully. I've had so many compliments from the friends and family that joined us at the Lab about what a great party it was and I can say, without a doubt, all credit goes to the Lab and their wonderful team." -Ashley W.
