The Space

The Knife Room is our incredible subterranean multi-use arts venue in the heart of Pioneer Square where writers, musicians, thinkers, and craftspeople share their gifts with our community.

The Knife Room is still undergoing major renovation! Learn more about this historic transformation and how you can ensure progress on this undertaking here.

The Mission

As small arts venues all over the city fall prey to Seattle’s exponential growth, Nordo is doubling down on our reputation for innovation by creating a new venue dedicated to events with lower overhead and lower ticket prices than our street level Culinarium. We’re calling this beautiful venue The Knife Room, where we will support cutting edge work and create a gathering place for a neighborhood in Renaissance.
