Seattle, Washington

Located in Seattle’s historic First Hill neighborhood and housed within a Roman-revival-style church, Town Hall Seattle is a cultural center that encourages democratic community conversation and supports a wide range of local arts and community organizations. Founded in 1999 by David Brewster, former publisher of Seattle Weekly, and a consortium of other civic-minded activists, Town Hall has found a niche as a mid-sized, affordable cultural arts venue and has been steadily booked with music, lectures, literary readings and other artistic events since its opening.

Our Work: Robert F. Mahoney & Associates designed the acoustics for Town Hall Seattle’s 900-seat Great Hall so that the auditorium could accommodate live music, spoken word and other performances. The firm also helped to transform the building’s basement space into a 300-seat black box cabaret.

Accolades: “The stately acoustics of Seattle’s Town Hall provide a perfect setting for a singular musical experience that is both stimulating and contemplative.” – Earshot Jazz
