6Featured Review- Tia: The overall experience and appearance of Hotel Murano was one of the best I have ever experienced. (show more)

Pros: Beautifully remodeled hotel with tastefully appointed guest rooms.

The overall experience and appearance of Hotel Murano was one of the best I have ever experienced. Having been born and raised in Tacoma and coming back to enjoy a concert at this location was very much a vacation. I will NEVER stay anywhere else for a concert at the Tacoma Dome.

Venue Information

What's the best way to get to Tacoma Dome?

You can travel to Tacoma Dome by bus, train, light rail or car. The Sound Travel 574 express bus connects the Dome with Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and takes just over a half hour.  The 590 service links downtown Seattle and downtown Tacoma with the Dome station. Fares range from $2.50 to $3.50.

Tacoma Dome station is served by the Lakewood-Seattle Sounder trainline with fares of around $5 from Seattle, as well as the Tacoma Light Rail Link every 12 minutes or so.

You could of course drive to the venue but do expect traffic for the bigger events. On the I-5, take exit 135 if traveling southbound and exit 134 if traveling northbound.

How much are drinks/food in Tacoma Dome?

You can expect to around $8.50 for a glass of wine or around $7 for a beer, which will be served in a plastic bottle.

Is there any parking?

There are around 1,600 parking spaces. With a capacity of 23,000 in the dome, you can expect these spaces to go fast! For on site parking, you should arrive early. If you do miss out, there are other downtown parking options off-site.

How much does parking cost?

Prices at the Dome range from $10-$25. Make sure you have cash with you as the parking lots don't accept credit cards.

What time do the doors normally open?

Doors generally open 90 minutes before most events and guests are advised to arrive early to avoid lines.

Any other important information I should know?

Don't think about bringing your selfie-stick with you, as the Tacoma Dome prohibits them. You may have to ask somebody else to take your photograph the old fashioned way!

Near the venue

What's the surrounding area like?

The Tacoma Dome is in the heart of downtown Tacoma and there are plenty of bars and restaurants a short distance from the venue.

The Dome is situated right next to LeMay - America's Car Museum. McKinley Park, with its tree-lined trails, lies just over the other side of the interstate.

How can I spend a day in Tacoma before heading to the concert?

LeMay - America's Car Museum

Car enthusiasts will love the LeMay car museum. Located right next door to the Tacoma Dome, it is the largest car museum in North America with over 300 cars, trucks and motorcycles over 4 floors.  It is well worth the entry fee for the self-confessed car geek.

Point Defiance Park

Make the short journey up to Point Defiance Park, the country's second largest city park, for forest, beaches and spectacular views.  The Park also houses Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium which you can visit for under $20. Where else can you see sharks and tigers in the same place?


Around a half hour north of Tacoma is the Pacific Northwest's largest city, Seattle.  If you do have the time, it's well worth the trip.  Whether you want to grab a coffee at the world's first Starbucks or to get to the top of the Space Needle for breathtaking views, there is something for everyone.

Where are the best places to eat and drink near Tacoma Dome?


If you arrive in Tacoma early, head over to Friesenburgers where you can get some of the best burgers in the city.  Bear in mind that it does close at 6:30pm but you will not be disappointed if you make it before closing time.  Sure, there are hamburgers for around $5, but why not go for the triple organic Bison burger for around $20? Oh and they even do gluten free!

The Matador

The Matador restaurant and bar serves up Mexican food inspired by American cuisine.  All food is cooked from scratch and since it is open from 11am till 2am, this is ideal place for drinks and a bite to eat before or after events at the Dome. You can even catch the game at one of the screens at the bar.

Stanley & Seafort's Steak Chop & Fish House

If you like to combine good food with a great view, be sure to make a reservation here and ask for a window view.  The Tacoma Dome is visible from your table and with happy hour from 3pm till 6pm and 9pm till close, it is definitely worth a visit before or after your event.

Is there anything else visitors to Tacoma should know?

Mount Rainier is visible from almost anywhere in the city and is truly an awesome sight. Bring your camera!

Would go again in a second, even with the traffic jam coming and going.

Pros: Show was wonderful; building was clean and bathrooms were well maintained.
Cons: No control on getting in and out - cars were gridlocked.

Arrived around 3:00 pm to secure a parking spot, visited the LeMay Auto Museum (highly recommended) then waited 1.5 hours for the Dome to open. Waited another 1.5 hours for the show to begin. Despite warnings for patrons not to take pictures it didn't work - there were plenty of people taking photos on their phones which resulted in security constantly running up and down the aisles waving flashlights at the offenders to stop but without any consequences - MOST ANNOYING. There were also many intoxicated guests that detracted from the overall enjoyment - perhaps alcohol should be restricted to the concourse only.

Pros: Eagles exceeded expectations.
Cons: Parking and no teeth in the NO CAMERA restriction.

I've attended many concerts there and only this time, when struggling terribly after the concert, was I informed they have seating for those that are disabled/mobility impaired. I have no problem buying a ticket. However I can't get up and down the stairs.

Pros: The concerts are always good.
Cons: Lack of moblity impaired seating.

Great place for a concert! Took my 12 & 14 year old daughters to see Taylor Swift on August 31, 2013! Also very secure with lots of security/cops. Felt safe! Sound was amazing!

Transportation runs ended before event did. Long lines for drinks and no use of debit cards at most food and drink vendors. Plastic seats had no drink holders. It's time for a face lift.

Pros: Never harnessed by security.
Cons: Sound; transportation; lines for vendors.

Van Halen and Kool and the Gang was an outstanding show. Had floor seating and that helped keep me from being mangled by the general population, but still...

Pros: It was a rock concert - sound and lighting were incredible.
Cons: Stupid, drunken, unruly people.

Very easy to find and close to our hotel accommodations (La Quinta Inn Tacoma).

Pros: Accommodating staff, plenty of available parking in handicap section.
Cons: Need more food service available on the floor of facility. Had to go to 2nd floor for food.
