Opened in 1991, this 525-person club hosted every important band of the grunge era, including Nirvana (billed as Pen Cap Chew) and Mudhoney in 1992 for $3.

Capacity: 525
Fun Fact: The Croc abruptly closed in 2007, but reopened in 2009 after undergoing extensive renovations that kept its signature stained glass intact.
