The Triple Door is the swankiest sit-down live music venue in Seattle—lush darkness and twinkling lights, an antique gold-framed stage with plush red curtains, and great semi-circular booths. Upstairs, there's the MQ Stage (previously known as the Musicquarium Lounge), a soothing grotto of a room with a giant fish tank, a great happy hour, and free live music or DJs nightly.
