Speakeasy swagger meets jukejoint jubilation

Our Mission 

Black & Tan Hall is a values driven restaurant, performance venue and gathering space that contributes to a thriving economy & community. 

Our Vision 

A hyper-local economy that respects and elevates diverse cultures, is built by and for people rooted in community, feeds the arts, & sustains good jobs. 


Our Values in Action 

• We foster a diverse, nourishing and accountable culture 

• We preserve and share the history of place, people and prosperity within the 98118 and SE Seattle 

• We nourish the body and spirit with good quality and culturally reflective food 

• We support and elevate arts that give voice, agency and power to those too often ignored, especially black, brown and native communities, women, LGBTQIA folks and young people 

• We build a supportive and collaborative business partnership that views partnership as kinship 

• We have compassionate and honest conversations about racism, sexism, ableism, ageism and gentrification; because we know to build a new type of community and economy, we have to confront bias and strive for equity 

• We create a path to co-owning and stewarding a business that sustains good jobs, is built on an anti-gentrification model, and does not require capital to join the partnership 


Our Model 

• An Alternative Economy: An anti-gentrification model that combats displacement, keeps dollars hyper local, and sustains good jobs 

• A Group of Partners: A cooperative investment business, made up of neighbors in community, who contribute dollars, talent and time to the vision; dollars aren’t a barrier to entry 

• A Restaurant: A place for good food, made with quality ingredients, that tells the story of the breadth of cultures within Rainier Valley 

• A Hall: A gathering place for celebration, reflection and creation; through workshops, social change events, cultural events, arts / performance programming and private rentals 

• An Arts Collective: A place to experience art, history and culture, especially performative arts
