The Daily Feature on History of Blue Moon Tavern

“Built in 1934, there are nearly nine decades worth of stories living within the Blue Moon Tavern.” Read this great writeup on Exploring the U-District’s historic Blue Moon Tavern by Zinnia Hansen as reported in The Daily.

“Though never fully shedding its old skins, the Blue Moon has lived many lives. According to the tavern’s website, It’s been “a beatnik speakeasy, a biker bar, hippie hive, and a grunge era dive.” But it’s perhaps most notorious for housing Seattle’s counterculture in the ‘60s and early ‘70s.”
