The Triple Door/Musicquarium
Instead of beer-soaked concrete and standing-room only, this rock club for grownups offers plush cabaret-style seating in semicircular booths, and a full menu of snacks, entrées, and creative cocktails. With this kind of setup, sight lines are guaranteed, and the acoustics are great. You won’t catch the latest indie wailers here, but you will see established alterna-performers like Rufus Wainwright, Robyn Hitchcock, and Nada Surf doing acoustic gigs, along with Seattle Symphony nights, jazz shows, and world crossover artists like Les Nubians.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
