Masks are strongly recommended at Town Hall Seattle. Read our current COVID-19 Building Policies.

We’re Taking a Holiday Break! The Town Hall administrative offices will be closed from December 26 through January 2.



Town Hall is centrally located at 1119 8th Ave (the corner of 8th and Seneca).

Our venue is served by frequent bus routes, is near access to light rail stations, and close to a number of parking options nearby – including discounted parking at LAZ Parking (6th Ave Hilton Garage). Please note we do not have our own parking lot. See parking suggestions below.


In general, we recommend that visitors use the 8th Avenue Entrance for events in the Great Hall and Reading Room, and the West Entrance for events in the Wyncote NW Forum.

8th Avenue Entrance:
A 3-minute drop-off and loading zone is available across the street from our 8th Avenue Entrance. The doors are accessible via a ramp and lead, at-grade, into our Lobby level. From there, patrons can access an at-grade elevator serving all three levels of the building, as well as an all-gender, ADA restroom.

West Entrance:
The West Entrance loading zone is accessible via a one-way driveway/alley off of Seneca street. Passengers may be dropped off or picked up directly outside of Town Hall’s West Entrance. The doors lead directly into the Forum level of the building, with at-grade access to the elevator serving all three levels of the building, as well as an all-gender, ADA restroom.

Our Hearing Loop system has been installed in all three of our performance spaces. Hearing Loop enables audience members with T-coil hearing aids to experience our events at full volume by having sounds from the stage’s microphones transmitted directly to their hearing aids. Headsets are available at the Box Office desks and are free to use; please check in with a staff member to borrow a headset before the event.

A Note for Parents/Guardians

With the exception of select events, Town Hall Seattle does not have age suggestions or restrictions for our programming. We ask that our patrons read the full event descriptions on our website prior to purchasing tickets and attending to make the best choices for themselves and/or any younger guests who might be joining them.

Almost all Town Hall events are unscripted; by nature, our events leave space for open discussion, inquiry, and spontaneity. Conversations, subject matter, and musical set lists may evolve throughout an event without prior notice; should difficult subject matter come up during an event, patrons are always welcome to step into the lobby to take a break before returning to the venue space.

As always, harassment, hate speech, and language that challenges the civil or human rights of any individual or community are not tolerated. You can read our full Community Code of Conduct here.
