Handmade in 2004, Nectar Lounge is Seattle’s largest indoor/outdoor music venue. We are located in Fremont, the Center of the Universe, and we are fortunate to be surrounded by some of Seattle’s most iconic attractions. Our goal is to bring all genres to our stage and all sorts of people together in our space. We are a home-away-from-home and all are welcome here – to drink, dance and enjoy incredible music, the one language we all speak.
We are the only venue of our kind in Seattle, one that showcases artists not only from all genres, but from all corners of the world. We take a global approach to music and to our space to ensure that every sound is heard and everyone feels like they’ve found their “third place” in Seattle when they come to Nectar.
Our space features three full-service bars, an upstairs mezzanine with ample seating that overlooks our stage and main floor and a covered outdoor patio with stage views.
We bring national and local musicians spanning every genre to our stage, including artists that play world music, folk, bluegrass, Americana, funk, jam, hip-hop, electronic, DJ/dance and more.
We are proud to have hosted many great artists, including Pretty Lights, Macklemore, The Presidents of the United States of America, Bassnectar, Greensky Bluegrass, Wiz Khalifa,Bon Iver, Allen Stone, Phosphorescent, Third World, Afrika Bambaataa, Janelle Monae, Aloe Blacc, Peter Rowan, Two Door Cinema Club, The Head and the Heart, Reggie Watts, Collie Buddz, Brandi Carlile, Barrington Levy, Sebastian Bach, The Motet, People Under the Stairs, The Wailers, Chali 2Na, Bernie Worrell, Doctor Fink and many more.
