For decades, Elliott Bay Books has been one of Seattle's best bookstores. So, a few years ago, when it was announced that the venerable institution was going to leave its historic Pioneer Square neighborhood digs, there was widespread worry—would the store survive the move up to Capitol Hill?
The answer, in a word, was yes. It survived, and Elliott Bay Books still feels like Elliott Bay Books. Creaky wooden floors in a century-old building, readings by today's best writers, an in-store café, the eclectic employees' picks—in one of America's most literate cities, this bookstore remains a haven. Online behemoth Amazon may be building its new headquarters downtown, but Elliott Bay is still a beacon for book lovers in the Pacific Northwest.
