Engine House No. 9 in Tacoma, Washington is a fire station built in 1907. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]

It hosted horse-drawn fire equipment from 1908 until 1919 when the first motorized equipment was bought. When eventually a replacement station was being completed, the 1965 Puget Sound earthquake shook the building and it was abruptly abandoned. It was reopened in 1973 as a restaurant and bar and was "the city's first historic building to be restored and put to a commercial use by private enterprise."[2]

The building remains a neighborhood restaurant and also houses an award-winning microbrewery of the same name.
