Located directly across the street from Pike Place, Showbox at the Market has been a Seattle institution for live music since 1939. Artists ranging from Duke Ellington to Pearl Jam have graced the stage, and local groups are often top billed acts. Over 200 nights out of the year, a line of patient concert-goers can be found winding out of the front doors and around the corner onto Pike. And for good reason – no matter what the act, this is a great, roomy venue with a full bar and an excellent sound system. All the ingredients you need for the perfect live music experience.
