Seattle is lucky to have such a vibrant live music and comedy scene. In the mood to catch a set? Here's where to go!
Visit this Post Alley classic anytime but especially in the heart of winter for a jolt of Jacquelina’s x-rated Callebaut hot cocoa laced with peppermint schnapps & marshmallows or on a summer day for a refreshing cocktail on the deck. Live entertainment in the lounge is a plus.
Great venue to see emerging regional acts like Macklemore to national touring icons like Prince. Ticket and drink prices are always a bit spendy and seating as in most venues is almost nonexistent but it's always a great night out.
Long time fringe theatre with a nice little bar, an intimate house and always interesting contemporary offerings on stage. Don't miss the monthly Spin the Bottle cabaret or the always awesome Emmet Watson's Weird and Awesome showcase.
Good prices and great comics come together in this subterranean house of comedy. Headliners and regional talent perform to a fairly tame crowd in a comfortable but casual house. Don't miss Hari Kondabolu and W Kamau Bell when they come through town as they frequently do.
Premier room to see top tier jazz acts from around the world. Fair cover charges and no drink minimum make it a great deal for an evening out.
This casual room presents local, regional and emerging national jazz acts in the most intimate setting in Seattle. Reasonable cover charges.
Old school Seattle dive with cheap beer, loud bands and video games to boot. Don't miss the collaged men's room.
This cinema turned concert venue plays host to a wide variety of local and national acts. A full bar is available.
Solid booking, decent cover charges and an intimate room make this place work.
I've been coming to this club since it was ARO Space back in the day and I've never have a bad evening here. Great diverse programming. Moe Bar and Pike Street Fish Fry all in one place make it a favorite destination.
Vegan friendly dive bar with a great beer selection, lots of live music and game nights. Check out Cakearoke Tuesday's at 9 p.m.
If you love music and you are tired of standing on concrete floors for hours on end hoping the band might start some day this is the venue for you. The room has full dinner and beverage service plus cushy seating, great sound and unobstructed site lines. They book great acts across genre and from around the country. They also play host to SIFF's Face the Music special events.
Love. This. Room. Come for happy hour, live jazz, magic, silent reading or any of the other delightful things that happen in this this velvet cocoon. Consider yourself lucky if you score the wingbacks at the fireplace!
Jai Thai hosts Punchline, one of the better stand-up comedy open mic nights in Seattle, each Tuesday starting at 9 p.m.
This old school Belltown club got a makeover recently which means (lucky for us) sight lines and sound quality both got a big upgrade. Diverse musical offerings and decent food and beverage make it a keeper!
