Black & Tan Hall

The Black & Tan Hall is a performing arts community space and restaurant opening this year in Seattle's Hillman City District.

The Black & Tan Hall is a performing arts and restaurant venue. Established as a worker-owned cooperative, we are maintaining Rainier Valley as a destination for cross cultural arts and education events. With a stage, event space, and restaurant that is both affordable and profitable, the Black & Tan Hall will create multiple income streams for its investors while celebrating the history of Seattle with concerts and classes.

Utilizing the skills and talents of Seattle artists and teachers, the Black & Tan Hall will be open for business morning, noon and night with all-ages events that draw in the diverse communities of the Rainier Valley. With income from beer and wine sales, food, classes, and live music events, the business will turn a profit while its administration operates through consensus-based decision making.

Plus you will get a neat gift that lets you know how grateful we are. Check ‘em out! The Black & Tan Hall began last spring, as a dream born among a small group of visionaries in the Hillman City neighborhood of Seattle. Their dream involved music, delicious cuisine, and a place where all members of our diverse and vibrant community could be explicitly welcome to share their voic...
