Performers determine the cover charge and customers pay that on entry. If you would like to make seating reservations send an email to reservations@ballardjamhouse.com with your request or call our main number at 206-789-1621 during business hours (after 6pm Wed-Sat). House revenues are from food and drink sales, so please come hungry and thirsty!

Our Reservation Policy
Our main room seats 46 people. We usually reserve 40-42 seats in the room prior to the show, with the remaining seats available on a first come, first served basis.
Reserved seats are held until the show starts unless we are notified of a delay.
Occasionally performers will sell tickets online - when that happens we do not take seating reservations for their show and seating is first-come first-served.
