City: Seattle
Neighborhood: Queen Anne
Address: 307 Nickerson St.
Closed doors in: Late '80s
Famous for: Circle Jerks riot

Serving as an unsavory all-ages club, Gorilla Gardens would soon become associated with the embryonic Seattle grunge sound. While many bands considered it a rip-off joint, the club still served as a tour-stopper amongst many top-notch bands like The Ramones, Guns n' Roses, Sonic Youth, and Violent Femmes. Even though the bar flew under the radar for most of its existence, Gorilla Gardens was thrust into notriety after a performance from the Circle Jerks brought in the Fire Marshall and catalyzed into a chaos-inspired riot.
