Town Hall Seattle

All spaces within Town Hall have seats reserved for those with ADA needs. The Forum and other event spaces have variable seating, but the Great Hall has fixed accessible seating.

Town Hall recommends that visitors use the 8th Avenue Entrance for events in the Great Hall and Reading Room, and the West Entrance for events in the Forum. 

This 8th Avenue entrance has a three-minute drop-off and loading zone and exists across the street from the 8th Avenue Entrance. The doors are accessible via an at-grade ramp and lead into the lobby level. From that point, patrons can access an at-grade elevator serving all three levels of the building, as well as an all-gender and ADA restroom.

This West entrance has a loading zone that exists on Seneca street, directly outside the West Entrance. The alley-path to the West Entrance door is at-grade, but Town Hall asks that you please note that the 3-minute passenger load zone on Seneca is at a steep incline. 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 and ADA restroom.

Please note that the block Town Hall sits upon is currently under construction, but when construction is complete the West Entrance will be their new front doors. Cars will have access to an alley where patrons can be safely dropped off and picked up directly in front of this new maximally-accessible entrance.

For more information, check out their website here or email access@townhallseattle.org.

This venue is located at 1119 8th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101.

Please read this section to acquaint yourself with our policy before taking part in any Earshot Jazz in-person event. Our policy may change as health and government agencies issue new guidelines, and we will update this policy accordingly.

Policies may differ for events produced by one of our presenting partners. Please refer to their policies for those details.

If a venue partner’s policy is more stringent than ours, their policy will be enforced. 

Proof of Vaccination No Longer Required

While Earshot Jazz no longer requires proof of vaccination at any venue where an Earshot Jazz event is being produced (unless that venue requires proof of vaccination), Earshot recommends that individuals be vaccinated.

Masking No Longer Required

Masks are optional. If you would like to mask up, please remember to bring your own.

In the Event of Illness or Contact with COVID-19

We ask that any individual who is not feeling well, suspects they might be ill, or who has come into contact with the virus, to stay home.

We appreciate your cooperation. Please direct any questions to info@earshot.org.
