The absolute right venue to enjoy the timeless classical masterpieces or some of the more modern concerts. Benaroya Hall has something for every taste in music or arts. We saw Mozart's great masterpieces and it didn't disappoint. The dress code is relaxed, you won't see a lot of black tie attires. Parking can be around $18-25 in the Hall's parkade,... More

We went to see the Men's Chorus Christmas program. What a crack-up. Not only was the music very well done, and the antics very humorous, but I couldn't help marvel at the acoustics. The seats are staggered and sloped enough that you don't have to be part goat to get to your seats. All had a great view. There were... More

Benaroya Hall combines modern engineering with traditional symphony hall charm. Acoustics ensure each seat enjoys the same hi fidelity sound. Great location near hotels and Seattle Art Museum.

This gorgeous hall has perfect acoustics--there's not a bad seat in the house. Even the back row of the top balcony offers a great experience for a modest fee.

It's a symphony hall that also books artists like Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne. The wood design is just beautiful. Very classy. If you like Thai food, the Wild Ginger is just across the street. They have onsite parking for $12 that sells out. Japonessa is around the corner and has a great happy hour. Try the plum wine!

It's a beautiful hall! Great atmosphere, I felt so classy while I was there. There were places to get drinks and snacks before the concert as well which was wonderful. But if you visit I would suggest dressing up a bit.

We enjoyed Beethoven 9th symphony by Seattle Symphony here. Truly outstanding! Acoustic was excellent. At the end the entire audience stood up to applause. Very moving. Many people dressed up nicely to attend the concert. We really enjoyed the whole evening.

Attended the President's Own Marine Band at Benaroya. As a music teacher that went to school in Seattle, it would have made sense for me to go to Benaroya at some point...but this was my first time. Acoustically this hall is outstanding - legend has it that the sound in every single seat sounds the same due to the architecture.... More
