The Venue

China Harbor’s Lake View Ballroom (upstairs, 2nd floor)
2040 Westlake Ave N, Seattle (Google map)


Local tangueros hit China Harbor every week for Seattle’s popular Monday night milonga on the first floor, but we have secured the Lake View Ballroom on the 2nd floor complete with its breath-taking views of Lake Union. Seattleites, you will love this change of scenery in one of our favorite locations, and we encourage out-of-towners to stay an extra night so you can come back Monday night for the regular China Harbor milonga.

**Take note: Due to Washington state laws, outside alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited at China Harbor and will be confiscated. NO EXCEPTIONS!**
