Originally known as the Crocodile Café, this venue is recognized as one of Seattle’s best venues for live music. Since first opening in April 1991, the Crocodile has housed performances by rock 'n' roll powerhouses such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Beastie Boys, Cheap Trick, R.E.M., Mudhoney and Yoko Ono. The abrupt closure of the Crocodile Café in December 2007 was not taken well by the Seattle community, who had grown to love the funky venue. Months later, the establishment was purchased. After much renovation and reconstruction, it reopened as “The Crocodile” in March 2009. This major music venue is once again a prime spot for people in the Seattle community to gather with good friends, mingle with music lovers and enjoy drinks while watching stellar musical performances by much-adored bands.
Fun fact: Scenes of "Georgia," a 1995 indie film starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, were filmed here.
