The Shop - Gearhead Country Club to Open in Seattle

The Shop, a state-of-the-art club for car and motorcycle enthusiasts, is under construction in Seattle's SoDo district with plans to open this spring. The 36,500-square-foot warehouse is being transformed into a car and motorcycle aficionado's dream: indoor storage with a viewing area, repair bays, car and motorcycle repair experts on demand, how-to classes, valet service, meeting rooms, lounge spaces, indoor detailing facilities and a new Ethan Stowell restaurant, called the Derby, created specifically for SoDo.

The brainchild of Seattle native Matt Bell, a technology executive and car and motorcycle enthusiast, The Shop will be the ideal facility for likeminded people to gather for business or social pursuits: a country club for gearheads in the heart of the city. The venue will provide a secure, temperature controlled home for classic, muscle, antique and exotic cars as well as motorcycles of all types.

"Space is a big issue for most car enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest. There just isn't enough room for all our toys or a place to enjoy, learn about, and appreciate them," said Bell. "My vision for The Shop is a place where people hang out, tell stories about their rides, enjoy great food and forge lasting bonds in a relaxed environment. The Shop will offer something not found anywhere in the region — a private club with great food, cool cars, zero arrogance and free parking. From Fords to Ferraris, Hondas to Harleys, all are welcome here."

Membership at The Shop starts at $150 per month with a $500 initiation fee.

Benefits of The Club membership include:

• Secure, climate controlled storage
• Use of state-of-the-art tools and equipment
• Access to in-house washing bays and detailing services
• Door-to-door pick up and drop off via covered transport
