Party like a rock star in Tacoma
You have come to the Tacoma Dome to rock. Upcoming historic concerts by AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Iron Maiden are all coming to the Tacoma Dome in 2016.
Enjoy Tacoma's upscale downtown, but don’t leave without finding the places that show Tacoma’s rebel roots.
Vinyl isn’t just for your pants. 6th Ave is a metal fan’s haven with some of the best vinyl stores in the region. Browse Hi-Voltage Records and House of Records and you are likely to find an original Black Sabbath album, with the one-and-only Ozzy, or some prime Iron Maiden.
Before heading to the Tacoma Dome for a show, grab some food along Tacoma’s up-and-coming 6th Ave with dinner at The Red Hot. Featured on Diners, Drive-in and Dives, they serve a local beers and specialty hot dogs you can’t find anywhere else.
Concert at the Tacoma Dome – show time!
Bar hopping on Pacific and 6th Ave – If the show is only the beginning of your night, go to some of Tacoma’s blue-color hangouts. The Office Bar and Grill on Pacific has a great late-night menu and eight different “Tacoma Mule” cocktails to choose from. Closer to the Dome, the New Frontier offers cold beers on tap.
Overnight at Travelodge in Fife – Clean, safe, affordable and close to the Tacoma Dome, Fife has several affordable hotels. We recommend the Travelodge, for its no-frills but friendly service.
Breakfast – Whether you’re looking for a greasy spoon, or just chasing the hair of the dog, the Poodle Dog Restaurant and Café will fill your need, with friendly and non-judgmental service. If you are a late riser and ready for lunch, swing by the Pick-Quick for their famous burgers, fries and shakes.
