The Muse Whiskey and Coffee Bar

Location: Everett, WA

The Muse Whiskey Bar is a remarkable rehabilitation project at the Port of Everett, Washington. This historic renovation spans 6,345 sf, and is filled with original millwork and craftsmanship. This iconic historic building has been transformed into a destination that blends nostalgia and modernity.

The project included a full interior renovation with new finishes, ensuring accessibility with a wheelchair lift and enhancing safety with an automatic sprinkler system. Externally, a deck with a waterfront view was added, as was an inviting entry stairway, and upgraded site electrical and utilities.

Originally designed by Carl Gould and built in 1923, the Gothic-style structure, known as the Weyerhaeuser Building, served as the timber company’s administration office. After being relocated three times, it has found its final home at the Port’s Boxcar Park.
