UK: DIY Space London. Great accessibility, has a room you can go in for quiet (really good for autistics or people with anxiety etc), gender neutral loos . They try to make being in a band/learning an instrument more accessible to LGBT+ people, women, disabled people, and POC by holding 'First timers' events where they teach people guitar or drums or bass or lyric writing etc basics and do socials so you can meet others who are new to stuff to form a band with. All-round a very cool place.

Recommended metal (and only metal, but all kinds thereof) booking agent in London - Mick Wood at Monsta Entertainments
I can also make some comments about good festivals (Roadburn, ArcTanGent, Bloodstock Open Air) if that's useful. Bloodstock is heavy and extreme metal - Mick is a good person to contact if you're a smaller band looking to get into the loop, as he runs the Road to Bloodstock battle of the bands for London.
If you're signed to a label, then you'll want to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Roadburn is extreme/psychedelic/fucking weird/post-whatever - it has an annual curator (someone in the industry), and festival founder Walter Hoeijmakers plays a key role, but I don't have a direct booking contact
ATG is smaller, post-rock/post-metal and want a link to music sent to email@example.com

The staff of El Corazon, in Seattle treat paying customers like shit and it was seen that their "security" guards handcuff and beat people down.
The new Funhouse, that shares their facilities, doesn't have the same problems.
High Noon Saloon: awesome venue. Very personal and friendly. Relatively accessible for disabled folks.Generally 18/21+.
Orpheum Theatre: Overall good. Accessibility is so-so.
Majestic Theatre: Awful for accessibility and lots of assholes frequent it. Venue treats bands well, but people show up and are super rude to bands and other patrons.

Here where I live the main ones for small shows are Cheers and Smith's and if it's big that would be the Morris Performing Arts Center. I don't know if that helps but there you go.South Bend Indiana, technically Smith's is in Mishawaka, but same difference.

Sadly my favorite Baltimore venue (the Ottobar) is dealing with some troubling staff issues atm. I'm hoping they put their money where their mouth is because I really love that venue. The chameleon club in Lancaster, PA was weird to attend a show at (having tons of bored cops around after the show didn't help any
the UK has something called the Unsigned Guide. They have a list of promoters and small venues that handle their own bookings and want to be contacted by anyone.
Over in the UK, I love The Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham; tiny place but amazing atmosphere. The Flapper is a nice venue down the road from ther on The Canal but that's at threat of closure to build flats.
In Wolverhampton there's The Slade Rooms which host a lot of amazing shows, then there's Clwb Ivor Bach which is pretty much the music highlight of Wales, closely followed by Le Pub, but that's in the most notorious rough part of the country
Things like the Dark Heart in Camden and the marwood cafe in brighton
