an extraordinary place with extraordinary music!

the location is right next to tram/bus station. If you are lucky, you can get 70% discounted ticket on a same day. This hall is situated near water!

Great place to see show, I got the privilege to see Chris Cornell sing here and it was AMAZING! Every seat has a great view and the sound is perfect.

Besides offering a great Seattle Symphony, this concert hall is used for other venues also. Seats are comfortable, with minimal knee room. Every seat offers a great view. Sound is perfect. The best part of all - this place is so easy to get to. The light rail lets you off right inside the building! Perfect way to spend an... More

Benaroya Hall hosted the tour featuring Julianne and Derek Hough. This theatre was a perfect venue for this show! We had great aisle seats in row T, so visibility was very good. This property has many parking garages close by, and also lots of bars/restaurants. The showmanship and talent on the stage of all the performers was exceptional.

Great venue for any music event. The acoustics are clean, but honestly a little flat. But the sound does travel well.

What a great place to enjoy music! The space is beautiful, the acoustics are amazing and although it fits about 450 to 500 people, the space feels intimate. The staff at this venue are first-rate and I can't wait to enjoy more live entertainment here.

Sound-wise there is not a bad seat in the house. Some views can be obstructed due to posts. Teens can use Teen Tix here on certain days, check to see if their Campus Club and Family program where adults receive a free child ticket with purchase are still going.

This is a review of the Hall's public tour, which is held about once a month. I can see three reasons to visit a concert hall: (i) to attend a performance (ii) to appreciate its architecture and art (iii) to learn about its inner workings: backstage life, history, etc.. The public tour did not address any of these. Considering that... More

We saw Yitzhak Perlman there a couple years ago. It is very nice, pretty large, and the sound is great. Very nice.

All the things I wrote last year about the Nordstrum Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall are still valid - its great acoustics, comfortable seats good line of vision. BUT, I have encountered a difficulty this year I didn't know about then. Beware of Nordstrum Hall (the upstairs recital hall) if you are disabled. Since I bought tickets last year I... More
