Live Music in Downtown, Pike Place & Waterfront

This cavernous 1137-capacity showroom – which hosts mostly national touring acts, ranging from indie rock to hip-hop – reinvents itself every few years and successfully rode the grunge bandwagon while it lasted. It first opened in 1939 and its dressing-room walls could probably tell some stories – everyone from Duke Ellington to Ice Cube has played here.
