The Armory Food & Event Hall is one of the most known venues on the campus as its home to seventeen different food vendors and is located at the end of the Seattle Center Monorail Platform.

With a built-in stage and dance floor this public facility can quickly transform into a corporate team building event, an exhibition show or perhaps a happy hour event with games and music. Ideal for large corporate events such as holiday parties this venue hosts an 8,000 square foot train village and décor each year during Winterfest.
