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. They offer the community culturally-reflective programming with an emphasis on showcasing artists from BIPOC and LBGTQIA+ communities.

Instead of the extractive and exploitative economic models, the community-owned collective’s mission is to create a values-driven cultural hub sustaining a thriving and equitable economy through arts and cultural programming. Black & Tan Hall aims to combat displacement, keep dollars hyper-local, and sustain good jobs, all while creating a space to experience and celebrate art, history, and culture.
