Directions:507 Maynard Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104 (between S. King St. and S. Weller St.)
limited street parking and the no. 7 bus stop on Jackson st. a block from the restaurant. Also, the link light rail Chinatown/ International District station is 2 blocks away on King St, right on Maynard Ave S.

We are usually seated towards the back of the restaurant.

Accessibility information: 
The space is wheelchair accessible. Hong Kong Bistro is public restaurant, so we cannot guarantee a fragrance-free space, but we are asking participants who will be sitting at our tables to come scent-free and avoid wearing perfumes and other fragrances to reduce the risk of exposure to our community members with chemical sensitivities. More information about why and how to be scent-free is available at http://www.peggymunson.com/mcs/fragrancefree.html and http://eastbaymeditation.org/accessibility/PDF/MCS-ACCESSIBILITY-BASICS.pdf 

Bathrooms are gendered and have scented soaps, so we are asking participants to please use the fragrance-free soaps API Chaya will provide in the restrooms. 

We'd like to work with you to make this and future events as accessible as possible. Please let us know your access needs by emailing selena@apichaya.org, and we'll work with you to make sure our events can fit your needs.
