HISTORY:

Since 1991, music fans far and wide have recognized the Crocodile as Seattle’s best live music venue. There is no other spot in the 206 with such a storied and beloved past, and no other rock and roll venue that has earned its right to occupy the hearts of so many. Among the incredible bands that have played within the walls of Belltown’s much loved living room are Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Cheap Trick, R.E.M., Mudhoney, and Yoko Ono.

TODAY:

We regularly host a vast range of up & coming local, national & international talent. Hip Hop, Rock, Electronic, Folk, Singer/SongWriters, Metal, Punk and Avant Garde. We also serve as a venue for showcases and private events and fundraisers.

We've been honored to host Ben Gibbard, Macklemore, Wolves in the Throneroom, Zola Jesus, Thee Silver Mt Zion, YACHT, Thee Oh Sees, Neon Indian, Explosions in the Sky, Grynch, Allen Stone, Wye Oak, The Lonely Forest, Intelligence, Meat Puppets, The Melvins, Doomtree, The Head and the Heart, Cults, Joy Formidable, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Loch Lomond, Tune Yards, Starfucker, Fresh Espresso, Bear in Heaven, Thee Satisfaction, Nada Surf, Hieroglyphics, Kulture Shock, Wovenhand and so many more incredible artists.

The Back Bar has become a favorite neighborhood spot where we serve hot pizza and cold drinks 7 nights a week. There is venue programming 7 nights a week as well. When there's not killer shows in the showroom, our back bar events include intimate, sweaty local shows at a $5 cover, Happy Hour Bingo, DJs nights, Monday night open mic comedy and Tuesday night karaoke.

Our online calendar has a full listing of upcoming events as well as more general info on the venue. We're proud and honored to have been a part of Seattle's music and nightlife scene for so long and excited about the new things to come.
