  • The Triple Door
    Since its 1926 opening, The Triple Door has played many roles—vaudeville theater, movie house, burlesque—and in 2002 it entered its latest incarnation, as an award-winning music venue and lounge. The Musicquarium Lounge at The Triple Door boasts a 1,900-gallon freshwater aquarium, as well as a menu inspired by Asian delicacies and brought to you by the acclaimed Wild Ginger kitchen. Start your evening with some Bangkok boar satay dipped in a golden-raisin plum sauce ($5 each, two for $9), and kick your noshing into high gear with fragrant duck spiced with cinnamon and star anise and served with steamed buns, Sichuan peppercorn salt, and sweet plum sauce ($14.50 half, $23.50 whole). Sip a beer-like beverage ($3.50–$12.50 bottled, $5.50 draft), sake ($8–$15), or cider ($5.25–$15.25) as live music swims into your ear canals most evenings from the lounge stage sans cover charge. Signature cocktails such as the river taxi ($8.50)—made with Mekhong whiskey, coconut water, lemongrass, and pineapple—float on sound waves aboard rafts made of smooth, smooth bass lines.

  • Showbox at the Market
    Duke Ellington. The Ramones. Pearl Jam. If a musical act has made a deep, cool-looking dent in American culture, it's probably played at The Showbox. The Seattle music venue has been drawing great performers since it opened in 1939, when the proto-proto-proto-grunge movement was underway. Paying tribute to this rich history, the owners recently gave The Showbox's lounge space a new old name: Kerns Music Shop, which used to be a storefront owned by a local trombonist.
