  • Sean Rowe at The Sunset Tavern

The Sunset Tavern is a popular music venue and a bar in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. The venue is well-known for its laid-back atmosphere and its wide selection of beers and spirits.

The Betty’s Room is worthy of a special mention. The Betty’s Room is a front bar area of the Tavern. It was modeled after a similar bar in the basement of a home of Don and Betty – a fun couple of regulars that truly knew how to party. Don built the room for Betty to have all their friends over more often; and for these two everybody is a friend!

To this day The Sunset Tavern keeps this tradition of a welcoming, light-hearted atmosphere up. You can come to watch a game, shoot some pool, or just hang out with friends. It’s a place that everyone should visit at least once.

  • Rose City Band w/ Low Hums & guests at Tractor Tavern

Tractor Tavern is housed in a historic building built in 1902 on Ballard Avenue. At first, it was starting out as a jazz and folk place and was named Old Town Music Hall. But the avenue area wasn’t a popular place for this kind of events at the time, so the venue needed a rebrand. It gained its familiar name in 1994. The story is simple — there was a tractor painting on the wall above the bar, so the decision was quick. Since then Tractor Tavern went through its alt-country phase and eventually started attracting musicians of various styles. It is a great old-soul bar, with an intimate atmosphere definitely worth checking out while you’re in Seattle.
