Capitol Hill

Capitol HillCapitol Hill

Diversity in a nutshell – Capitol Hill is a hip neighborhood just east of downtown that is welcoming to all types of businesses and residents.  Perhaps its greatest draw is the variety and energy it provides (no doubt aided by the many coffee houses that can be found on the hill).  From daytime activities including browsing the many independent bookstores and exploring the great green spaces – most notably Volunteer Park – to the nightlife that abounds with music and dining options, Capitol Hill is never short on entertainment.  The major downside to all of this fun is the lack of parking, which is exacerbated by the many multi-unit dwellings found here.

Check out the other Broadway – Whether it's fine (or not-so-fine) dining, live theater, live music, night-clubbing/dancing, Capitol Hill has it all. Most Capitol Hill businesses are located along Broadway Avenue East, up and down E. Pike and E. Pine streets, and along 15th Ave E. If dancing's your thing, check out Q, The Baltic Room, and Havana Social Club. If clubbing isn't enough exercise for you, you'll find both pool and bowling at Garage Billiards. The Comet TavernNeumos, and Chop Suey are all great spots for live music. In terms of food, like Belltown, Capitol Hill has dining options of all types and budgets;  after-hours hot dog stands to an upscale experiences at spots like Altura. Finally, any discussion of Capitol Hill would be incomplete without mentioning the LGBT scene. As the center of the Seattle LGBT community, Capitol Hill has over a dozen gay and lesbian clubs and bars. Nearly all of them are very welcoming of patrons of all orientations (R Place, Neighbors). It's fairly easy to tell which aren't. 

Co-ops to mansions - Because of the large number of co-ops and older condo buildings, folks who want to buy a home on Capitol Hill can still do so relatively inexpensively. But buyers should first educate themselves on the limitations of co-op ownership (and the difficulty of financing co-op purchases) before considering buying into a cooperative. Otherwise, because of it's central location, amenities, hillside view lots, and overall desirability, Capitol Hill is one of the more expensive neighborhoods in Seattle. And that's not even counting the rare house that comes up for sale on Millionaire's Row. Houses on Capitol Hill sold for an average of $782,000 in the last year. Condos averaged $311,000.
