It's no surprise that the city that gave the world Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana rocks to the beat of great music, and while Seattle's legacy may be grunge, the city's venues leave no musical stone unturned
Located just across the street from the picture-perfect Pike Place Market, the Showbox at the Market is a Seattle legend. It opened in 1939 and everyone from Muddy Waters to Pearl Jam has played beneath its stately chandeliers. With a capacity of just over 1,100, the Showbox mostly hosts national and international touring bands – and local bands with the largest draw. With two bars just a few steps above the main floor, even the most vertically challenged concert goers can usually find a spot to see the stage, making it one of the most enjoyable places in Seattle to see a show for all ages, heights and interests.
