Partner & General Manager
Black & Tan Hall LLC.
Inspired by Seattle’s Black & Tan Club prominent in the 1930s, the new Black & Tan Hall is a cooperatively-owned performing arts and restaurant venue which seeks to maintain Rainier Valley as a destination for cross-cultural arts and education events. Historically, Black & Tan clubs offered a haven for people of all races in an era when segregation dictated social boundaries. B&TH embraces that inclusive ethos while celebrating Seattle’s rich music and arts history.
