Although it's experienced a variety of incarnations over the decades and boasts a rich history, the current-day Showbox is a must-visit place to catch touring bands directly across from storied Pike Place Market. Amid Art Deco columns, young and hip crowds clamor to hear and see their favorite groups. There's even a dance floor on which to show off one's moves if the spirit strikes. Plus, several bars accommodate patrons with a good menu of libations. Before the show, pop by Kerns Music Shop, a lounge formerly know as The Green Room, which provides an intimate atmosphere and features a full bar.
