Inspired by Seattle’s racially-inclusive Black & Tan club of the 1930s, the Black & Tan Hall is a cooperatively-owned performing arts, events space, and restaurant in the city’s Hillman City neighborhood.

Friends and activists Tarik Abdullah, Ben Hunter, and Rodney Herold co-founded the venue as a space where people of all ages and from diverse backgrounds can find community and creativity. Tarik, Ben, and Rodney aim to nourish the body and soul with culturally-reflective food, elevate arts that give a voice to underrepresented communities, and foster a diverse and accountable environment.
