The Columbia Tower Building is a high rise office building located in downtown Seattle. It features 76 floors including a observation floor on the 75th and the Columbia Tower Club on the 76th. Both floors are surrounded in windows with a spectacular view. I was able to visit the “Mile High Club” just like Christian and Ana in Darker. To reach the top floor you have to first travel up one elevator and then exit and enter onto a second one that takes you to the top. The Columbia Tower Club is only accessible by members and their guests, but they do have some events open to the public. The Club was recently renovated about 3 years ago. It has a open lobby area with seats, couches and small private areas for the club members to use. There is a smaller upscale dining area called Harvest which has been recently renovated and is done with wood plank floors and luxurious furnishings. The other large eating/bar area includes another seating and eating area that is more casual. The staircase rises to two separate larger spaces that can be used for any size event. The large bar stretches across one end of the restaurant with tables and booths in front of it. The day I visited we were literally in the clouds. It gave the view a eerie feeling while looking down on the city and out to the water. The womans restroom was also recently updated and was quite lovely, along with that “hot” elevator.
I began my day with sitting in the Starbucks across the corner from the building having a coffee. While sitting there of course Ellie Gouldings FSOG song Love Me Like You Do starts playing. Weird Fifty Karma for sure. It was a cloudy, rainy day and I was able to use this glass enclosed underground tunnel that ran from under the building I was in to across the streets to under the Columbia Tower. They had two levels underground that were all restaurants and lounge areas for their employees. After visiting the Columbia Tower Club I jumped into the elevator heading down. It stopped and three other people got on and I noticed they had filming equipment and I asked about what they were filming in the building. I shared with them that it was a somewhat famous elevator because of FSOG Darker. Their eyebrows lifted and they were intrigued by that. The young woman then turned to me and said how funny that was because she worked as a dominatrix in LA. Bamm. I was a bit speechless and just smiled and said wow, yea that is a funny coincidence.

“The Mile High Club is on the seventy-sixth floor of Columbia Tower, higher even than Christian’s apartment. It’s very trendy and has the most head-spinning views over Seattle.”
This is inside HARVEST the more upscale fancy restaurant at Columbia Tower Club.
This is inside the larger main restaurant and bar. The stairs take you up to two more large spaces.
Yes this table is shaped like a guitar pic.
“Go and take your panties off,” he whispers. “The restrooms are the height of modern design-all dark wood, black granite, and pools of light from the strategically placed halogens.”
“When the doors open, Christian takes my elbow and steers me to the back.” “Wrapping his free arm around my waist , christian pulls me to him, holding me in places as his fingers explore. Holy fucking shit…in here?”
“WHAT! Sex in the car? Can’t we just do it here on the cool marble of the lobby floor…please? ”
The View from “The Mile High Club” . If you look closely at this first view photo you get a glimpse of the freeway that was filmed for Ana leaving Seattle. Its is the freeway interchange and she exits off around the curve.
