Focus Forward Breakfast Roundtable - Presented by DSA and Gallatin
Seattle's gone global. As new residents, tourists and tech workers flock to downtown, they are looking for a variety of experiences after 5 p.m., including arts, culture and a vibrant nightlife. 

Nighttime businesses are a fundamental component of our economy – providing jobs and tax revenue and an important spectrum of social experiences for all ages and lifestyles.

But, as many cities are finding, a vibrant night culture won’t happen by accident. It must be cultivated. How can Seattle smartly approach the burgeoning demand for around-the-clock experiences? 
 
Moderated by Gallatin Public Affairs’ Bob Royer, our December Focus Forward panel will take a closer look at the trend toward a 24/7 downtown and the importance of Seattle’s nighttime economy while we explore new strategies to make this a reality.


We will be joined by an exciting panel, eager to share their expertise and goals for downtown. Kate Becker oversees the City’s nightlife initiative. Liz Dunn is an innovative developer with a knack for placemaking who recently opened the Cloud Room on Capitol Hill. A restaurant heavyweight, Pamela Hinckley has worked with Tom Douglas for years and helped to grow his restaurant empire to its current heights.
