Ballard has some of the best music spots in the entire city and the Tractor Tavern has a very special role in that scene. There are some venues that are too small and some venues that are too big. Tractor finds that sweet spot. Grab yourself a Rainier Tall Boy from the bar when you walk in to really fit in with the neighborhood faithful who frequent this locale for shows.
Within the greater music scene, Tractor perfectly hosts local acts, while also bringing in up and coming national bands who are just about to make it big. This is one of the places where you say “remember when we saw so and so before they started selling out theaters.”
The spot is small and intimate, but not congested, with a southern aesthetic that provides the perfect ambiance for a little toe tapping. If you’re in town only weekend, I highly recommend you peak at their calendar, odds are you going to find something that would be a treat to your ears.
