Seattle Weekly's Description
The Blue Moon in the University District is like a home away from home (or possibly just home) to all kinds—it's often touted as the old haunt of local literary legend Tom Robbins. Thursday through Saturday nights, it hosts live music—heavy on rock and Americana—but days have their own charm, filled with streaming sunlight, plants, walls lined with books, and academics, transients, and grad students immersed in lively conversations. Out front, a scaled-down version of SAM's hammering man lifts a beer to his lips, and the nude rendering of a woman resting on a crescent moon woos would-be patrons. Not that they're hurting for more—the regulars alone could carry the place to 2034 and then some.
Tips from foursquare
I just saw a dog pee on the pool table... really
This is hands down the weirdest bar I've been to.
The Blue Moon has a bit more patina since '57 when my grandma danced on the bar in her swimsuit, but the beer is great and the regs will have you feeling the old-school charm.
They have Triplehorne on tap...drink it
Best atmosphere ever. Seattle should be forever Grateful to have this in their city.
