New businesses open at Paramount Hotel

01.23.2023 | Daily Journal of Commerce

The Paramount Hotel, at 724 Pine St., is now home to two new businesses — espresso bar and breakfast spot Spruce Cafe and upscale Korean restaurant Chan Seattle.

Spruce opened last October, followed by Chan in November.

The businesses occupy 4,512 square feet on the ground level of the hotel that was last occupied by Dragon Fish. Dragon Fish called the Paramount home for 20 years and a full remodel was undertaken to get the space ready for its next chapter. That remodel was designed by The Society. JTM was the general contractor.

The businesses share an interior design palette which is light and bright with minimalist furniture and neutral tones. Some partitions were added to the interior to differentiate between the cafe and the restaurant.
