Connect Lounge is a cozy Belltown bar & Lounge entirely designed to encourage human connection in real life. We are an experience, a place where guests can get inspired, because what’s a better way to learn and get inspired than from stories of life? The place holds many different kind of messages and it touches those ready and open to receive its messages.

Our interior design features a few unique elements: the Connect Wall, The Inspire Me Seattle Wall, conversation starters, phone boxes- that contribute to the community feel of the bar. Menus are focused on craft cocktails (we call them stories) with a mix of flavors from spirit forward to light and fresh. The food menu is simple: small plates, appetizers; Pacific Northwest cuisine with a little Romanian touch. We serve Romanian mici on the menu. The place feels modern urban, hospitable, with a warm energy.

Iulia, the owner, simply enjoys people and their stories. She believes that anything is possible in life if one truly wants it and has taken this life philosophy to each experience she’s lived. Connect Lounge was simply an idea back in 2010, an idea that came from her writing down a list of things she really enjoyed doing as well as skills she had. As years went by, the thought of creating this social welcoming space kept coming back. The journey to create it began in late 2015. Connect Lounge opened in the spring of 2018, and Iulia feels more inspired than ever.
