75+ Years & Still Rockin’!

On July 24, 1939 the doors opened, and fans flocked to, Seattle’s newest entertainment hot spot – a beautiful art-deco gem named The Show Box. 2014 marked the club's 75th anniversary, one of Seattle’s few extant entertainment venues that can lay claim to having provided local music fans with such an astonishing breadth of entertainment over the decades. From the Jazz Age to the Grunge Era to the current wave of Seattle exports – neo-folk and hip hop – the storied ballroom has featured shows by touring icons such as Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters and the Ramones — as well as those by homegrown talents ranging from burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee, to grunge gods Pearl Jam, to the current dynamic duo on a course for world domination Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. More recent shows have included the likes of Prince, Foo Fighters, and The Roots - to name a few.

Formerly named Showbox at The Market
Located near Pike Place Market, downtown Seattle

Probably the best pop music venue in Seattle. I've been to numerous shows here and this place does a great job in all of the responsibilities of a venue. There are lots of different places to stand and even some options to sit that give you a great view of the band. The different tiers really help break up the front of the stage and the human smoosh that goes along with it from the multiple bars. I am regularly surprised by it being easy to get a drink in this place. Thats not always the case of course, but theyre at least trying. The sound levels and mixing are great here. Im sure that the shape of the room has a lot to do with it. Being laid out in a concert shell style instead of a rectangular space does wonders.

This venue is okay unless you want to drink. Apparently they have sold their soul to Budweiser, because their beer selection is exclusively inbev drinks. They are very overpriced, even for a music venue. Just don't buy any drinks there and you may have a good time.

Went and saw Infected Mushroom in January... Was extremely disappointed with the acoustics of the building. Security was also weird.

If you like getting pressed and overcrowded into a hot sweaty smelly sea of people and not be able to see the stage... this is the place for you. Can't dance, can't get your arms up to take a pic, can't breathe, can't see the band. Fun, right? Fix the viewing area. People will spend money and come back for other shows if you treat them like humans, not sardines!!! Parents; don't let your kids go to shows here.

Hey Marseilles played tonight at the Showbox. The venue is charming. The audience was incredibly rude. The 3 tables around us talked nonstop in loud voices. When the band played they just talked louder. It was rude to the musicians and the people wanting to hear the music. If you want to visit with friends go somewhere else and let the rest of us enjoy the music.

The service here is wonderful. Staff is always very pleasant! Only thing I would recommend is that the kitchen stay open later.

Good place with basic acoustics. Better place to enjoy the show is at the back, with fresh air and good sight of the scenario.

This venue is awesome! I've seen a few shows here (Fabolous in 2013, Anberlin last month) and both shows were great. Although the quality of shows have a lot to do with the group/individual who is performing, this is one of the best venues to watch a concert at. I've also have never had any issues with the staff, any question I ask has always been very helpful. The bouncers are always at tentative and at their respective spots (front door, near the stage, etc.) so I have no issues with security. I also recently went here on Friday (10/31) for the Risque Halloween party. To be honest, I didn't have high hopes for this event because I wasn't sure if the Showbox was an appropriate venue for throwing a party quite like this. I was wrong. The event was awesome and I highly recommend everyone to go next year when tickets go on sale (tickets were pretty cheap too!). DJ Mack Long was great, they had a nice photo booth to take pictures at and it helps to have two bars open so the lines were not very long. Overall, every time I have gone to the Showbox it has always been a blast.
