Area 51 was a short-lived show venue in Pioneer Square during the mid-'90s, located about a block Southeast of the Velvet Elvis. It was like a dance club or something that started hosting punk shows, although I can't think they hosted more than 25. It had a black and whited checked floor and small stage, although you can't see either in these photos. I bunch of local bands played there like The Degenerats (shown in the photo), Bristle, and many more, as well as a few touring bands. The Casualties played their first Seattle show at Area 51.
