Moe's was one of the iconic clubs of the grunge era; the original no longer stands, but Neumos has risen in its place with the best lineup of alternative acts in the city. At Nectar, in Fremont, local groups alternate with stars already on the rise. There's a different genre of music every night; you might catch anyone from indie jazz darling Ben Allison to alt-pop crooner Jens Lekman. Both Tula's Restaurant and Nightclub and Dimitriou's Jazz Alley have the city's small jazz scene cornered, but Egan's in Ballard has a more eclectic (and local) lineup. Also in Ballard, Tractor Tavern is known for its roots, blues, and country acts, though it gets its share of indie rock action, too. Benaroya Hall is the home of the renowned Seattle Symphony. Thanks to its state-of-the-art design, the main hall boasts clear and balanced acoustics from each of its 2,500 seats. Even if you're not attending the Seattle Opera or Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Kreielsheimer Promenade adjacent to McCaw Hall is among the most stunning architectural spaces in the city—particularly at night, when digital light shows dance across its metal scrims.—Updated by Aaron Barker
