How Alex Calderwood Changed Seattle Culture

What was it that led him to start Rudy’s Barbershop, Ace Hotel, and a bunch of other Seattle institutions? Jared Lovejoy


Thanks, Trisha.
He will be missed. Great piece. I always loved his projects.
Thank you Trisha. Alex was one of my favorite people on the planet. He was a valued friend and an all around great guy. Your piece captures his spirit perfectly.
I did not know Alex, but I certainly have enjoyed the fruits of his labors. What a lovely article. I wish his friends peace.
Thanks so much for writing this. So many blurred memories of times spent in wonderful spaces he helped create.
Very well written. Thanks.
Great piece. I hadn't heard anything about this. He had great ideas: Rudy's was a very cool idea at the time, and Ace have spawned a host of imitators. He really created his own niche that others were slow to catch on to. How many innovations in the hotel space have there been in the last 20 years?
Perfectly said, Tricia...
He was obviously brilliant and industrious, brought lots of great things to the world, but if he was an addict, he was afraid all the time. That's what continual drug use covers up.

Please wait...
